I've not tried the Oven cleaner deal?? Not sure what chemicals Might strip the finish off or worse melt stuff? What has worked for me is simple! I just use an old toothbrush and gun solvet, cleans out all the nooks and cranys and then I wipe clean and apply a bt of furnature polish! It brings the woord colors back and provided some protection to the elements! Most of my 1911's and BHP have rubber grips on them, but if I sport wood, thats how I clean them! Simple methods always seem to work, fads and gadgets seem to fade?
