i use brake cleaner, a CLP and a bore solvent.

i remove the action/barrel from the stock and remove the scope. flush all the working areas along with the bore with brake cleaner, then using compressed air blow everything out. clean the bore with a good bore solvent, until clean. then i spray everything with a CLP, let sit for a bit and then blow off the excess with compressed air and then re-assemble.

My Model 60 has a plastic (urethane?) buffer at the rear of the trigger group. Brake cleaner may be detrimental to the life of this buffer. Try Gunscrubber, it should be a bit easier on the synthetic parts.

Some will require a flat blade screw driver to remove the action/trigger group from the upper. As Axxe stated, flush it out with aeresol cleaner and lightly lube. Be careful about dinging the muzzle with a cleaning rod. Bugger the crown and lose the accuracy.

i am using a non-chlorinated brake cleaner/degreaser made by Zep called Kwik-Solv, that is safe for plastic, rubber, painted surfaces, metal and electrical components like printed circuits, relays and motors.

it comes in a 22 oz. non-aeresol bottle with a spray nozzle. it also dries with no residue and cleans well and evaporates quickly.

i got it from a supplier at work that is a Zep dealer. i am not sure if this is even available at the retail level or not. i bought a case of 12 bottles a few years ago, andstill have about 7 bottles left. i highly recommend it if a person can get it.

+1

Also get yourself a good one piece cleaning rod if you don't already have one. If you have one of the 3 piece screw together aluminum cleaning rods, do yourself a favor and throw it away.

Mineral spirits in my parts cleaning tank and compressed air work just fine for cleaning. As for lube, a light mix of Mobile-1 and Marvel Mystery Oil works great with all excess blown away with compressed air. Been using various ratios of the oil mix for years with great results. Also makes a great exterior preservative against rust and corrosion.

The bore won't need cleaning before the action does. So do yourself a favor and don't clean from the muzzle. Take the barrel and action out of the stock. Separate the action from the barrel. Blow out the action and clean the bore from the breach.

What Axxe Said...except I rarely use compressed air last , which can cause moisture buildup. If I can't reach it with a bore Snake, or a brush, it gets Air., but as a last step so I can Dry it out afterwards...
