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?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

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.
