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.
I do the same thing

i personally dont go by rds i actually clean my weapons on a weekly basis wheter i have been out shooting or not maybe this is just due to being former military. i use the otis msr kit along with weapon sheild lube or the slick 2000 i personal find these to be the best for me.

I usually clean mine after every shooting. I live out in the North Western part of the country where the climate is dry. We don't have the humidity of the eastern side on the country. If I lived in that area I would be cleaning the guns more often. I found the product that works best for me is Mil-Comm lubricants and Brian Enos Slide Glide. Both have the best long term applications I've found so far.

Yesterday I received the new Nowlin Featherlight Match trigger I'd ordered for my Brolin Arms 1911a1 L-45. I then spent an enjoyable hour-and-a-half detail stripping the pistol, installing and adjusting the trigger for take-up and over-travel, and then wiping down the pistol's frame and slide, inside and out, as well as wiping every single individual part and spring, with a cleaning patch moistened with my afore-mentioned blend of STP and synthetic motor oil.

The patch was moistened just enough that the bluing would darken ever so slightly as the patch was wiped over the metal rather than looking "wet." When reassembled, the pistol felt as though it was riding in a oil bath. (Of course, that may be due to having previously polished most of the bearing surfaces in the gun with 800# and 1000# wet/dry sandpaper.) I finished reassembling the gun with the thought that there are few things that match the pleasure of cleaning and oiling a 1911 pistol.

I've three revolvers: a 686, a 629, and a 3" 60 that dealing with do the same for me. Trigger pulls are light and smooth and I feel as though I shoot them above my humble abilities. I've own them all for a number of years. This AM the wife had seen me looking at and handleing a new 101 4" and said, "If you like it, get it."

I told her, "No."

Insanity runs deep.

I used to lose a lot of time and money using dedicated proprietary

solvents. I've slashed my cleaning budget, and time usage, by

getting back to basics.

Brush Solvent, ATF, Mobil1,Janitor's Ammonia, and Vinegar.(DO NOT MIX)

Default Clean weapons hurt nobody; dirty ones can kill

I clean my weapons after each shooting event (range/hunting/etc) and when I recognize they have been handled repeatedly. Also after long/stressful weeks I give my fovorite(s) a quik going over.

Sigh. Remember when we were teenagers and would detail strip, clean, and oil our rifle or shotgun at least once a week whether it needed it or not just for the pleasure of doing so?

True...It is safer than playing in traffic, healthier than alcohol and more effective than a shrink!
