    Break Free CLP for regular cleaning. Been using that for as long as I can remember. I also use a foaming gun scrubber for the .22 and for a really dirty gun, that works really well. Shooter's Choice Quick Scrub III. I don't remember who recommended it, but I thank them.

    G96 is the best smelling "clp" I've ever used. Dunno what's in it, but I like it.

    I've been using Eezox recently. Best thing I like about it is it leaves a dry film that makes black finishes look really nice. The wife says it smells like the chemicals from the car wash, so she likes it.

    Brākleen. Then wipe and finish up with Mobil 1 0w-30 synthetic.

    Ballistol is safe on metal, wood, and leather...but it will stain the leather...like any other oil, while it preserves it.

    Ballistol is great! That having been said, for my initial cleaning of the internal works of my weapons, I use non-chlorinated brake cleaner. Yes, you have to use it outdoors, it's flammable and it stinks, but boy howdy does it take the bulk of the grime off quickly. Then, at the bench I fine clean with Ballistol, the smell of which I actually like!
