John: I'm more concerned for my wife's SP101. As good as Frog lube and the others are, they don't totally remove the powder stain around the chambers of the cylinder. So who carries the CLP powder blast and how much does it run cost wise...?

Yankee Marshal on you tube has a video where he removes all traces of black on the cylinder. I forget what he used. He is kind of a rainbow twit and I seldom watch his drama queen antics. However, even the dimest bulb can shine a little light in a small space.

I have used NEVER DULL for 15 years. It works great on my stainless GP100. I tried many other products but never dull works better than anything i've tried.
It comes in a dark blue can with white lettering, one can lasts along time. IT is a cotton type wadding you tear off a little bit and rub the carbon off.
Costs about 5 or 6 bucks a can, i found some at ace hardware for around 3.50 a can, wallmart has some in a gold can but i'm not sure its the same thing.
I can send you a picture of the can if you want.

Default Never Dull & Powder Blast

You can buy Never Dull at almost any Auto Parts stores. It is a popular product for cleaning wheels. I have used it for year for that purpose. If you use it to clean your firearms just be careful, it does contain an abrasive that is embedded in the wading.

Amazon carries CL Powder Blast for like $11 a can (12 ounces). I usually buy mine from there.

What do you use and is there a "miracle" solvent that takes the residue off easily?
I use a lead removal cloth. Works great. See my avatar.

I found it! Now if I can find time and a place to shoot my GP100, I can test the cleaner out!

Saw the picture and realized I've been using it too. Never paid attention to the name! It is helpful on the cylinder face, the forcing cone, the recoil shield. I doubt you will ever need Never Dull for the outside finish if you clean regularly. Have to be careful with it. Do not use it on bright SS. How do I know? Learned the hard way.
