I recently just bought a CLP called FrogLube. I can honestly say that this is the best CLP that Ive used. No need for Hobbes or Oil. You warm up the pieces with a hair dryer, then apply the paste.
I use this regularly on my Glock 23 and my cleaning time went from 45 min to less than 15 :-)

I use hoppe's products almost exclusively. I like they lubricating oil more than any other on the market. I do prefer nylon coated, one piece rods to collapsible non coated ones( my twisted mind thinks they are smoother) for patches I prefer patches designed for the caliber, not all purpose.

I've heard about those sonic cleaners. I just polish by hand but have been thinking of"upgrading"any suggestions?

I bought this one from Harbor Freight for $75.00. It's the exact same model Lyman charges twice as much for. Works like a champ. It has a heat setting, but it isn't powerful enough to actually heat cold water. I just heat up some on the stove until it's hot enough so I can barely put my finger in it, then pour it in. The "heat" setting on the machine will keep it hot after that. I use Dawn dish washing liquid for a detergent. Works really well.

I've always been a huge Harbor Freight fan. That cleaner looks pretty cool. I might be able to get a whole Glock in there! XD

Used to be Breakfree CLP and Hoppe's. I just recently tried Froglube on a couple of my guns an I am really impressed! I think that may be the only thing I use for now on.
