Mark 4 Government issue colt
 
So I inherited my grandfathers colt mark 4. It needs a good bath - recommendations on products?

Thanks

About as good a combo of products as it gets. Add a kids toothbrush for those tough spots and hard to reach places and you are set.

Thanks I'll get right on those

dont panic when you pull your weapon out of the safe a few days later after cleaning with clp and its dirty again. clp continues to constantly pull carbon build up out of the metal. it takes a series of cleanings to get the build up out of fouled guns.
