Does the safety have to be in the "safe" position to both remove the slide...AND to reinstall the slide??

Also, what are the key areas to lube on the PPK?

No, the safety can be in "fire" mode. What I found that makes it hard to reassamble is that the ejector/hold open lever creaps out of its regular position and keeps the slide from wrapping around the frame.

Key points to lube are the outer circumferance of the muzzle, the bbl. hood, the hammer face and (with the slide off) the rails that contact each other.

Here's a good place to read up on the subject:

Tom knows his stuff when it comes to the PPK.

I also rub an oily patch or finger lightly on the sides of the frame where the slide can rub during cycling.  On my stainless PPK, you can see a few little scratches.  The extremely light coat of oil on the frame really helps out a lot.

I do the same (oily patch or finger) on the hammer face and tip just to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Militec oil all interior surfaces and moving parts then put in an oven @170 degrees, repeat 3 times = smooth as glass
