ok, guess i'll start.
almost everything i know comes from posters on this board or others. i don't have vast experience, but i'll let you know a few products i have come to rely on.
wipe-out foaming bore cleaner.
i simply love this product, and if there is a better way to clean out your barrel, i haven't found it. i have not had to use a brush on a barrel in so long i can't remember!
you simply spray this into the barrel, wait 30min or so (or clean up the rest of your gun). run some patches through and clean barrel! sometimes i have to spray it is twice, but it is still a breeze. made cleaning my guns much more enjoyable imo. i've only had one problem
with it. once, it discolored a small part of the stock on one of my guns (of course this particular stock was very cheap and soft). so, if you get it on a wood stock, wipe off immediately.
birchwood casey lead removing cloth.
FOR STAINLESS ONLY, i have been told. the poster vincent led me to this product, and it works!!! i have a stainless revolver that i had scrubbed to death trying to remove some lead burn rings. this baby just wiped it right off! this just works!! boy, does it stink though!
probably well known, but a great lube for the semi autos imo. it just seems to get better after an extended shooting session.
the rest of my products are fairly common. hoppe's #9
as a general cleaner, rem oil
as rust prevention.
i would like suggestions about the best general protection for storage of firearms. i also like hearing suggestions on the best products for blue vs stainless firearms. especially what products might be harmful to certain surfaces and finishes.
