    I went to bass pro and picked up a cheap handgun cleaning kit made by outers. It comes with a solvent, oil, patches, rod and brush for something like $9.99. I find that this kit and a can of gunscrubber do the job pretty well.

    Usually Hoppe's #9 and CLP, but I occasionally use Sweets 7.62 if I've fired a LOT of rounds that day.

    Really cheap cleaning solvent

    This is gonna sound crazy, but have been using this for the past 20 years with complete satisfaction: "simple green"
    1. Pour some undiluted simple green in a container.
    2. Dip the bore brush in the simple green & brush the bore.
    3. Dry bore with some clean patches.
    4. Blow bore dry with compressed air.
    5. Visually inspect bore.
    6. Repeat brushing this time with a bore brush & flitz metal polish squished in the bristles. Brush bore & clean up with clean patches until the patches stop coming out black.

    Flitz Metal Polish, Iosso Bore Cleaner, Ballistol, Lucas Gun Oil, and Wal-Mart Mineral Oil. Once in a great while I'll use a little Sweet's 7.62 Solution. On all, but 22 caliber, handguns I don't use a jag or slotted tip; instead I wrap the patches around the brush.

    I never use Tetra. I've had problems with it in the past, especially on or near wood. I have nice clean guns - The bores actually shine! (Until I coat them with Sentry Solutions, 'Smooth-Kote'.)
