    Default What is your preferred solvent, lubricant and oil for a handgun ?

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to find out what your preferred choices are.

    What solvent do you use to get rid of all the debris ?
    What lubricant/oil do you use ?
    And what oil do you use to oil/protect the slide from sweat/rust ?

    Thanks

    I use ALG Go Juice as a lube. Im waiting for their new grease and will change to that when it comes

    Have used SLIP in the past with excellent results.

    When I eventually get around to cleaning I use either the Slip cleaner or normally the Birchwood Casey gun Scrubber

    I have used Slip2000 EWL in my handguns, Beretta 1301, AR15 and other guns with excellent results.

    The benefit of a good synthetic oil with additives really becomes evident when shooting an AR a lot without really cleaning it after every range session. I just wipe down the carrier every now and again and relube with Slip2000 EWL the critical points and the rifle runs and stays easy to clean.

    Clean Green for the plastic bits. Surgical spirits for the metal parts. Slip for the "after".
