I don't put my slides in there because of the night sights, but it's safe for everything else. Pull the hand grips on my 1911's and they are good to go in about 10 minutes of treatment. Really good stuff.

For a range kit I use M-Pro7 that I bought in a handy plastic kit that housed everything from swabs to cleaner to lubricant to the kitchen sink.

That was the only negative I could possibly say about their stuff, it works well and I have never had any performance issues from any gun, 1911 thru Glock thru Kimber thru Sig Sauer thru Taurus after it has been cleaned with their product.

No offense taken bud - I know how lucky I am. Thanks for re-enforcing it though.

That is the coolest thing ever!!! Seriously, that has GOT to rock. I only dream of having stuff that cool AND useful.
Makes going out shooting even more fun when you know that clean up is going to be a snap!
Being a gun "newbie" I didn't even know cleaners like that even existed. Makes me jealous......lol.

Virtually anything from ATF fluid, to Mobil One, to any decent gun oil.

I'll pickup Break-Free or Weapon Shield if I'm passing a display; I avoid Ezzox live the plague because I can't stand that, 'whorish smell'; and I, also, avoid any of the break cleaners - whether chlorinated, or not - because of all the reports about carcinogens.

My favorite cleaner used to be Hoppes; but, my wife hated the smell. After everything is said and done, I've settled on clean, pure, Ballistol Sportsman's Oil. It gets the job done; has a mild pleasant odor, and all of my polymer frames and gun furniture absolutely love the stuff. (It actually seems to rejuvenate gun polymers!)

For a combination: lubricant, preservative, and anti-rust compound I use Sentry Solutions, 'Hi Slip' Grease and, 'Smooth-Kote'. If it's good enough for the Navy's SEAL teams to use, then, it's good enough for me, too.

I always wear Latex or Nitrile gloves while cleaning firearms. I'm getting older; and, I don't want to expose myself to anymore carcinogens than I really have to.


World's Safest & Best Gun Cleaner/Lubricant

I use a Tetra gun cleaning kit, using Parker Hale 009 down the bore and G96 for the lubricant.

I use Ed's Red with synthetic ATF for cleaning, and Mobil 1 for lube.
