    looking for advice on cleaner which is safe for polymer framed handgun

    I have a polymer frame handgun, and am looking for a cleaner fluid which will not harm the plastic. I notice on many of the bottles of available cleaners the word "solvent". It's been my experience that solvents can harm plastics. I've been looking on the shelves for a cleaning solution that states "safe for polymer frames" but I haven't seen any yet. Did a search on here too, but haven't found much so far.

    Any suggestions?

    when i purchased a glock i was worried about this too, so i consulted the manual and if i remember right it didnt say anything about not being able to use anything to clean it. I would double check the manual just to be sure though.

    i have had smith, ruger, glock, sig, and taurus polymer frame guns and i used hoppe's cleaning solvent on all the frames inside and out and never had a problem. however when i am finished cleaning i dry wipe the outside of the gun and then take a damp paper towel and wipe the whole outside of the gun. makes for a nice clean finish. you tube has plenty of videos of people cleaning polymer guns with all different kinds of solvents.

    I've used Eezox and Gun Scrubber Synthetic Safe for all my polymer guns for years with no problems.
