Be really careful with carb cleaner, I've had that melt plastic parts,

and burn the finish right off spots on wood stocks ...

Haha, I didn't mean like that. I should have said every time I practice with my self defense weapon I clean it lol

I am pretty much like everyone like everyone else every time I shoot. Maybe a little OCD too there's no gun range close to me so I go out to the river to do my shooting. I don't shoot that often but I catch myself cleaning my 2 autos,Springfield XD .45 ACP and my new Beretta PX4 Storm .40 S&W, once a week.
I take #9 on a bristle run through the bore a a few times then run some cleaning clothes until clean, looks like a mirror inside lol. Then Gun Butter Trigger and Locking Lug grease and Complete Firearm Lube, also Gun Butter. After all is done and gun put back together I wipe the slide down with a silicone rag. The OCD kicks in so I wipe them down a couple times a week.

I have a question. I use the Gun Butter like the say which is DO NOT put the Locking Lug grease on the slide rails but use the oil on them. Anyone know why?

As the old saying goes....Cleanliness is next to Godliness..Remember when you use to have to take a bath every Saturday night whether you thought you needed one or not. But Momma made you?? Now get in there and be sure to scrub behind that trigger!!LOL

Thank you for the reminder. I loaned my GSG 1911-22 out to a friend and he brought it back after shooting, he says, about 70rds. through it. It was late at night when he returned it and I put it away without cleaning it. I'll get right on it now.

Well, notdku, if you'd told me you'd get 1,000 replies back when you started this I'd never believed it.
OKAY here's another cleaning method I'm sure its old as the hills but don't recall anyone saying anything about it.
Put a patch OVER a wire brush and push through the barrel- is a fast way to get most of the gunk out and is not as harsh as a bare wire brush.

Better than that is to take an old brush and wrap four ought steel wool around it, useing it as a brush with your favorite solvent.

I do something similar to remove lead fouling when I've been shooting cast lead bullets. I cut a small piece of CopperBrite or similar copper pot scrubbing wool and wrap it around an old brush. It pulls the lead fouling right out similar to but much less expensively than the old Lewis Lead Remover.
