    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.

    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.
