Default Favorite Gun Cleaning Chem?

Alright everyone, time for another poll...What is your favorite gun cleaning chemical and WHY?

We have heard some crazy answers to this question. Most were focused on how their's smells or looks, but I am interested in performance.

Lets hear it??

Where is the poll???

I Really like Otis, smells like a coconut tanning oil covered chic at the beach!!
It really cleans well.
I also have been using FP10.
Outers foam is great for the leading and copper.

For general cleaning I like Hoppes #9.

For my SS barrels that don't get a bronze brush I use gunslick foaming bore cleaner and Hoppes Copper solvent.

A few years ago I was at a Force Mod Conference for SWAT, SRT and Special Operation Groups and was introduced to a product called Gunzilla by the inventor Don Kettles. I have to say I don’t use anything else to clean my guns as this stuff is fantastic. I will use some Otis Dry lube after cleaning even thou Gunzilla does leave a light lubricant also. It is a little more expensive than an off the shelf cleaner but it is well worth it.

here is the web site - Gunzilla

Shooters Choice bore solvent. Cuts the Copper, Lead and plastic fouling really well.

Hoppes #9 gets another vote on the poll that doesn't exist.

Shooter's Choice bore solvent normally, Montana X-treme occasionally to really clean the copper out.
