Default gun cleaning

I first use Gun scrub to get to all the hard places (trigger mechanism,exhaust port etc.) then clean the barrel & go over every thing with solvent hoppes 9 & last oil it down until the next time. If I don't shoot for awhile I'll clean it periodically any ways.

Totally cool.

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.
JD,

I so happened to have one of these for years (from another hobby) but never used it. Mine is an industrial/medical grade that has a dent (but new) that was sold to me for $50 .

I am curious what solution are you using to clean your pistol? I heard diluted "Simple green" solution works well. Comments?

Thanks!

I use Break Free CLP and Powder Blast. For lube, I use Mobil 1 spiked with Tufoil (PTFE).

Hoppes #9 and copper solvent to clean.

Mobil 1 0w30 and Wilson combat lithium grease to lube them.

Usually a cleaning patch, but sometimes i just rub the lube on the firearm with a finger.

I love the smell of Hoppes but have been an avid user of Break Free since I was in the Army National Guard I have it in Gallons, Quarts, 4 oz bottles .5 oz bottles and spray cans.
