Froglube is amazing! Lube and paste, highly recommended. Plus it smells great! Be sure to heat up with a hairdryer first. There are demo/review videos on YouTube.

I agree! Great stuff. I forgot the heat part the first time, now that I got the application right, I'll never go back.

Default another amazing find

another poster (vincent i think) turned me on to this....lead removing cloth. this thing straight up WORKS! i had burn rings on my revolver i was scrubbing with every solvent i knew.....no luck..they remained....

lead removing cloth took it off like a breeze!

my understanding is ONLY for stainless steel! they say it will remove blueing!

I've been using a mixture called "Red Oil" for several years and it works just fine for me.

Might have to keep an eye out for this stuff. Got a gp100 with rings I wouldn't mind cleaning off

Hoppe's Elite for cleaning. RemOil and Tetra Gun Grease for lube. Does a great job.

1-Hoppes No9 Solvent-get the 16 oz bottle and pour it into smaller bottles to reduce cost

2-Hoppes or M-Pro 7 lube-long guns get Hoppes unless it is AR15 or something

3-M-Pro 7 Bore Gel-started using this on AR15 barrels and use it on most rifles and pistols

4-Hoppes Elite Copper & Lead Cutter (I use this sparingly)

5-Birchwood Casey Lead and Metal Polishing Cloth-cut off a two inch square and clean all the rings and carbon spots off your stainless revolvers. I have several revolvers that have thousands to hundred rounds that look better now than they did out of the box

I stay away from the following:
1-Birchwood Casey Gun Scrubber and Bore Cleaner in 16 oz aerosol can-product itself seems to works well but after one or two uses the cans will no longer spray. I think the actual solvents destroys the plastic buttons. I must have half a dozen half full cans of the stuff. Shame because the Gun Scrubber takes off most of the crud and works well on synthetics

2-Tetra Gun Grease-It works well and keeps a gun slick feeling and easier to clean after shooting...so use to use it on all my semi-auto guns and even AR15's. This stuff turns into thick and gritty surface if left in a very dry safe for 3-4 months. It was hard to get off most guns and I will swear it destroyed a Sig Mosquito slide and barrel. I don't use it anymore. I just use regular Hoppes lube or M-Pro 7 lube for carry guns and Birchwood Barricade if putting guns away for an extended period
