So my bf and i just got our new and first fire arms but We havent got the chance to shoot em yet :( before we do shoot em i want to give our guns the froglube treatment first. Im not sure what i do really need for cleaning and maintenance but So far im thinking of froglube, silicon cloth, t-shirt patches, cleaning mat, microfiber rags, cleaning rod and a brass bore brush (i really want a nylon bore brush though). Is that a good list or do i need more?

Sounds like you got it all covered. I'd pick up some Bore Snakes as well.

If you have the frog lube paste and it didn't come with a brush you can use a plumbers flux brush. A 3 pack at Lowes or Home Depot costs about $5.00. Also might need a set of brushes for cleaning the frame, outside of barrel, feed ramp, etc. You can also use furniture stripping brushes, again a set can be had at Lowes or Home Depot for about $3.00.

Im afraid the brass brushes might scratch the frame/outside of the gun :( is it really ok to brush the frame with a nylon brush instead?

Yes, nylon won't hurt the finish. You really shouldn't need to scrub the outside of the gun, well..unless you intend on getting it muddy. :-)

You can use the nylon for the frame and slide or anything finished like a stainless steel barrel. Brass for the unfinished parts. Throw the steel brush away. :)

Seconded on the bore snake...:cool:

Get a bottle of Hoppe's #9...if only for the smell...;):D

Lead rags can do wonders as well for the tough to get spots...it'll shine stainless up really pretty
