I've heard about that. It takes cosmoline off too, but I also heard it damages the wood if you get it on the wood.

I realy like my ultra sonic cleaner , for getting the carbon off. I usde it on the cylinder of my 629.
Carbon that I couldn't get off with a copper brush , came off with two half hour cycles in the ultra sonic tank .

How much do ultra sonic cleaners usually run? I've heard they're really useful for cosmoline removal and other cleaning.

Been using the frog lube for a few months now, it's good stuff, can get in a heavy oil and a paste, and a little of either goes a long way. Haven't tried it for cleaning (haven't found anything Hoppes no.9 can't break down), but I heard it works great. Before frog lube I was using Milcom TW30 grease, also great stuff.

+2 for ballistol. It does everything, and does it all very well. Also it is good for wood and leather so no worries about your stock getting hurt. I use it on every gun I own.

Ok does Walmart sell Balistol? It sounds like it will do the job.
