Surely your kidding?

Even now whenever i smell hoppes #9 it reminds me of cleaning my ruger 10/22 as a kid after rummaging the woods all afternoon..good childhood memories

I gotta admit, the Hoppes #9 has a nice smell to it. It always reminds me of being around guns as a kid.

I use Dexron III transmission fluid for all my AK and SKS

return springs, gas rods, bolts and carriers.

Just wipe off the soot with a rag dampened with

tranny fluid, then re-oil using the same, and you're

good to go...

(obviously, clean the barrel as you normally would)

ATF is mostly detergent any way. Sounds like a good process to me.

Bought one of those cheapo Hoppes cleaning kits with a rod, solvent and lube. Didn't even end up using the stupid rod. Pops taught me an easier way without having to bang metal around inside the barrel, rather using a leather shoestring, flattened at the end and slit a bit to hold a cloth patch. Then simply run the string through the part desired to clean, wet the patch and pull through. Repeat a few times, replace patch with dry one and continue until fully dry and voila. Then a dab of lube worked in and it's reassembly time. Liked it much more than ramming some rod back and forth, just seemed so much more natural, like one would've done hundreds of years ago or when out in nature without the "tools".

Anyway, I was worried that I was going to hate the cleaning proccess and fall out of my new love for firearms quickly. Instead, I enjoyed the cleanup almost as much as the shooting. And after finding how easy it was to pull the trigger on such a range of weaponry, I'm only sinking deeper. Lookin forward to the purchase of two more handguns and a rifle.
Your Ruger has a magazine, not a clip. There's actually a difference . Just sayin...

How is the field stripping on the LC9? I just bought the lady friend an SR9c. It's an astounding weapon, and I don't even like the 9mm, regardless of who makes it...

Please lets not start the clip/mag debate.

Anyways, OP. Check out M Pro 7. I use that on all my handguns and I love it. Awesome stuff. It's small and black with a little spray top. I use that to clean it all up, then I luba doob doob it on parts that are rubbing and presto!
