"The final countdown". Degreasing new CZ100 (help)

:rolleyes :evil

In the words of a one hit wonder group "Europe"... "I'ts the final countdown....."

Next week I am finally going to pick up my new CZ100 9mm. As I checked it out in the store and found out on the billboards... it comes packed in "factory grease". This means that just like my two rifles before I will have to actually clean it and lubricate it myself.

My questions are as follows. Any input appreciated
1) Which parts of the gun needs to be degreased
2) Which ones to be left alone.
3) Which degreaser is "safe"
4) Any recommended gun oil?
5) Where should I apply it (parts of a gun)
6) Can I really overdo it with the lube and is it unsafe?

Any other comments... things I should know about.

thanx  :)

I use Shooter's Choice cleaning solvent - does a better jog and less pungent than Hoppes.  I wiped the gun off as well as possible, disassembled, and then gave all parts a light scrub with SHooter's Choice.  I cleaned the bore thoroughly.  Then I put a light coat of oil inside the bore and outside the barrel.  I put some BreakFree LP and moly lube on the rails, a drop LP on the striker spring, reassebled, and voila.  Nice clean gun. It's also easy to take apart.
