Any preferences on cleaning solvents and oils.
CLP and nothing else, imo. For the external stuff i like to strip the slide and reciever once or twice a year (thats all i clean mine) and wash them with soap and warm water really well. Then soak and clean all internals with clp. Then reassemble with some very livht clp on moving parts. The slide gets a VERY light wipe down with clp on a rag, reciever gets nothing.BrickBack said:Any preferences on cleaning solvents and oils.

I kept both in Mason jars on my workbench.
Sometimes, I'd take a sip of the 'shine... or two... or 3. Since I had the lid off.
After a few sips one night I got the jars mixed up.
It didn't hurt my Glock my I had to lick the dog's butt to get the taste out of my mouth.
Dont use hoppesvoyager4520 said:-Hoppe's #9 bore solvent for bore cleaning.
-Hoppe's Elite Gun Cleaner for cleaning everything else, including plastic. Any metal parts I clean with this, I then wipe down with Ballistol and wipe dry for corrosion protection.

There is a whole thread I have on it if you do a search. Very informative.Miay0187 said:Why wouldn't you use hoppes??

CLP never did this to me, I'll never use something else again even in a pinch.
