^^^^^ What Manicmechanic said. Always use lubricants that will perform at extremes in any weapon that may be relied upon for defensive purposes. On polymer framed weapons, make sure the lube chosen is safe for use on polymers.

I usually use Lucas gun oil. I've had good luck with it on my other guns.

After getting everything cleaned out, the disconnector still got stuck. I think this will just be a range toy. I do enjoy shooting it. The new mag works well.

I took this to the range on a warm day a week or so ago, and every shot did not reset the trigger. The trigger bar is straight. I just ordered Norm's trigger spring to try in it. I'm hoping this works. I really like the gun, but I am beyond frustrated with it, too.

Update after Norm's spring install: It works! I got through two mags without any issues.
