Just keep in mind that some solvents aren't safe to use on a plastic frame, I'll use Hoppes #9 on the barrel, but stick with something like CLP for the frame.
Nope. It leaves a varnish-like residue behind. I once spent hours cleaning that gunk off a Remington 870 I got for $80 from a pawn shop.
We used 2 use lighter fluid in the Marine Corps after hard days and nights in the field. Nothing breaks down the carbon quicker. This was in the late 70s early 80sI have been usine #9 to clean the barrels and Break Free CLP to clean the internals of my M&P and Sigma.
I have experienced some gunk buld up in the sigma from using too much CLP. An experienced gunsmith suggested that I use lighter fluid to clean the interlans and skip the Break Free.
Do you agree with using Lighter Fluid? Your input is welcome.
