I wish you luck with your new 21A. Sounds like yours is working good.From what I've read you have to keep it well lubricated. I put some Break Free formulated for S/S and rapid fire guns. We shall see next time out.
Thanks for you comments.

I use Eezox for general cleaning and corrosion protection but like to use NanoLube for the lubrication. This combo seems to be working quite well with all my handguns so far.

If it's works for you that's all that counts.I'm old school. I used good ole Hoppes #9,use RIG on a sheepskin for storage and been using the Break Free to lubricate.I don't get to shoot very often.

With the price of ammo steadily climbing, I may have to cut back on shooting as well. No shooting = no gun cleaning = no therapy.

I use Ballistol. About as "Old School" as it gets, LOL!

Now ain't that the truth LOL.Before I moved I had a range to shoot at. Since I've moved here I really haven't found a place. Saturday afternoon I took my new G-30 out back of the house and put 10 rounds through it. Shot like a dream.
Unfortunately instead of worrying about the politicians trying to outlaw guns, at this rate they'll put them out of everyone's price range.

I have always wanted a pocket pistol that would shoot cheap 22 lr ammo and resonably accurate. Remember the little Walther thp, one of the neatest looking stainless pistols I've seen. But alas, like the Berretta 21 they were generally very fussy about the ammo they would shoot reliably if you could find any at all. I now have a Colt pocket 25 (circa 1930's) that shoots beautifully though I shoot it very little due to its value and the prohibitive price of 25 ammo. I would try all the brands of 22 ammo that I could get a hold of to see if one type would cycle reliably. I have had good luck with the PPK size guns such as the Astra Constible, Bernidelli md80, Bersa and my current one a Berretta mdl70s. CD
