    I use Hoppes#9 or Shooters Choice and a brass brush. Works for me but I don't try to make it look brand new just clean. Good luck.

    Use Hoppe's #9, but use patience, as well. Don't splash it on and rub it off. Give the chemical time to work. Apply the solvent, then walk away and go do something else for a while. If all the gunk wipes off, good. If some wipes off, but not all, then you didn't wait long enough. Do it again. Let it soak as long as necessary. Try not to use "mechanical" action (emery paper, brushes, scrapers, etc.) to clean guns. You get microscopic (or larger) scratches in the metal that dull the appearance. At most, use a nylon-bristle toothbrush.

    I use Hoppes #9 too. Totally agree that it need to sit a while and let the chemical(s) do what they need to do. I usually wont use Gun Scrubber unless it's a really dirty gun. It seems the last couple used 1911's I bought used were owned by that Peanuts character Pig Pen That Gun Scrubber works pretty well when ya really hose it down so I can get in there with something else for some intensive cleaning. I will also let parts sit in alcohol between applications so I don't get some mix that will cause me to grow horns or a 3rd eye

    Professional tip of 25+ years-----mix some simple green & h20 @ a 50/50 mix in a spray bottle & spray the area. Scrub with an old tooth brush. Rinse with hot water & blow dry with compressed air or dry with a hair dryer.

    Cheap, non-flammable, no bad fumes or smell, environmentally friendly, non-toxic, & kid friendly. What more could you desire in a cleaner !!!!!!!!!!!
