As a side note to all this, do NOT use Birchwood Casey gun scrubber on a Beretta 92. The dots on the sights come right off.

Ahh lessons learned the hard way. May I suggest tritium night sights? There's no wiping those off.

I think it's safe to say, in general, you must separate

the harsher barrel solvents with what you use

on the exterior of your gun...

I just finished cleaning a 870 for a friend who-my opinion- would buy a gun because the old one won't work- it needs cleaning. I've known him for 40 years and several times ---. Well, the 870's safety wouldn't go on safe. Cleaned there was no problem other than one of the springs that retain shells in the magazine needed to be re-staked. Once during a pheasant hunt in Iowa, his 1100 wouldn't cycle. A quick wipe of the outside of the magazine tube with a rag and lubrication from oil off the trucks dip stick got it going again. He really likes to shoot the .257 Weatherby, it doesn't work forever, at least not accurately, if the lead in the barrel isn't taken care of. After 42 years , I still am amazed.

I buy the regular size bottle of Hoppes and when it gets 3/4 gone I take long strips of old T-shirts and stuff 'em in the bottle. I use the soaked cloth strips to run through rifle and shotgun barrels.

Try the standard size ( paint ) brush cleaner at the hardware store.

It's half as much as the weenie little Hoppes bottle, for a full quart,

and cleaning your barrels will take much less time.

(DO NOT apply it to the outside of your gun.)
