    what do you guys use?

    I just tried that M-pro 7 stuff and its good shit. Cleans really well and has barely any smell.... When shit is really dirty I like gun scrubber for everything except the bore...

    I just started using FP-10 for oil too and it seems to be good shit.

    for cleaning too? I use that for oil, but I'm trying the FP-10, supposed to be better.

    I've cleaned a gun with just CLP... its easier with solvents.

    break free, hoppes #9, hoppes copper & brass solvent.

    for a quick clean, break free does it. if i want it spic and span or have a buildup of some sort, i'll use the others.

    Wipe-Out brushless bore cleaner, you just spray it down the barrel, let it sit, and run patches through till they come out clean. Works great.

    I have cleaned a lot of guns and used many, many different products to clean and re-lube; here is what I found works best:

    Go to Wal-Mart and get some Non-CFC brake parts cleaner. This is the same stuff that is a can of Gun Scrubber, but for 1/3 the price. It is one of the best degreasers/gunk removers on the market. Brand doesn't matter.

    Now, as far as oil goes, I suggest either the grease from Wilson Combat or the Oil. The grease lasts longer and stays better put, but the downfall is it collects a little goo. I like to use it on the rails of slide/frame and on the areas where the bolt travels. The oil is great. I use it on any other small part that needs lubricating.

    Also, another hint. When in the Corps, we use to fill 55 gal. trash cans with 1/2 bottle of Liquid Dawn dish detergent and then fill it with water. Simply use a brush and wash the gun. Dry it off when you are done and you'll be super clean. If needed, use a bathtub or sink; however, some grime may not come off easily.

    Last tip is Castrol Super Clean, aka The Purple Stuff. That is a great degreaser/cleaner; additionally, a little bit goes a long way...

    Hoppes to clean, and Mobil 1 motor oil for lube. It's really the best lubricant I've ever used.
