    What does everyone use to clean their Glocks and what ammo do you use for plinking?

    I use hoppe's no.9 solvent for the barrel. And rem oil for the gun.

    Amo I use winchester white box from wal-mart for target practice.

    For range shooting I use Winchester fmj 115 gr 9mm

    For SD/HD I use( dont bash me it's what I can afford) Remington UMC JHP 115gr also 9mm

    I bought a Hoppes kit that I use for cleaning. I use the bulk Federal or CCI for my M&P22 and the cheapest 9mm I can find for my glock 19. I prefer the Blazer, the PMC Bronze, or the American Eagle for 9mm.

    I use hoppes as well and hornandy critical defense for my carry ammo. Hope this helps.

    g21redman just wants to watch the world burn.

    I just use the Glock cleaning brush and a rag.... and as far as lubricating I use MILITECH-1... and as many ppl say on here the container actually says apply shoot wipe dry to avoid sand and dust contamination.

    Breakfree CLP for light cleaning...Ballistol for deep cleaning.

    FMJ ( any brand ) ammo for plinking...HP's for SD...( Hornady Critical Defense in my G30SF )

    Ultrasonics for cleaning guns and brass for reloading.

    Gun Butter for lubing her up.

    It will change your life! :D

    Break cleaner for the inside of the barrel then some CLP through it. CLP for the slide and outside of the barrel. No chemicals for inside the frame, just patches and Qtips. If I'm really lazy then I just throw it in the ultrasonic cleaner.

    This is the best kept secret there is in gun cleaning. Developed by and sold by an ex-nav seal. Since I found out about it I don't use anything else.

    me too. I also have used the UMC from walmart for target practice, never had an issue with them either. I don't have alot of experience, actually little, lol but I use the same chemicals that Hollen uses because I have seen many here say they work great.

    I'm going to really mess with your head a bit...
    For cleaning I use rubbing alcohol (90%) and for lubricating I use a dry lube called Lab Lube which is a teflon powder that sticks to most surfaces of the gun but doesn't attract dust or hold powder residue. My after range routine consists of an old toothbrush and a couple qtips with alcohol.
    Had no problems with this method.
  15. For ammo, I couldn't even tell you how many brands I've used in my Glocks, all I can say is I've not had a single problem of any kind with either of my Glocks no matter what ammo I use.

    To clean, I just use a garden hose. Ok j/k about the hose, I use either Hoppe's #9 or Ballistol. But you really could get away with using just a hose to clean a Glock.
