    I use Hoppes 9 or CLP to clean all my firearms.

    I have used a few, but nowdays use G96 for everything, with Brian Enos Slide Glide on the rails. Overpriced at $15 on amazon for an aerosol can, but it works well and smells better than Ballistol.

    If the bore doesn't shine up after running a brush through it, I hit it with Hoppe's #9

    I also use Remington Squeegees, which were damn expensive, but haven't used a patch in about 2-3years. $60 for almost every caliber in a bag, which doubles as my range bag.

    I'll tell you this much, when everyone was complaining about Frog Lube, I laughed and gobbed it on my guns for years... until earlier this year wheny XDs striker gummed up during my LTC qualification. Couldn't get a single shot, firing pin was literally putting a scratch im the primer.

    sorry, that was a bit of a rant. But new, old, whatever. Clean them all the same.

    When I got my Kimber 82G from the CMP, I used AeroKroil to flush the bolt assembly... I cheated.
    Otherwise it's Hoppe's #9.
