Question Micro 9 Oiling

I am new to owning a pistol. My wife gave me an early Christmas present, a Micro 9. I really like the pistol.

However, I think that the Owner's Manual falls short for a newbie. On page 65, it tells you where and how much to oil the gun, but I am unfamiliar with many of terms, so I do not know where to oil. For us newbies they should have an illustration of the location of things like: Disconnector, Barrel Hood, Barrel Link, Slide stop pin.

Or at least a PDF file that could be downloaded. I am sure you Vets understand these terms, I tried to look them up in the book and nothing!

I think the videos will help you a lot, they always help me. I would recommend oiling a little more than the videos will show for the first 500 rounds.

I like to run my guns WET. Just remember to keep them CLEAN after shooting.

A: He doesn't know how to break down an Ultra.
B: He should have inserted the tool into the guide rod before removing the slide stop.
C: He doesn't know what a slide stop is called
D: My little sister is stronger then him if he can't compress an 18 lb spring.
E: I he acts like he's had a nip or two before or while doing the video.
