    Chad10 check out What cleaning kit for use on Sig 226?

    It is under the Sig forum but applies to almost all handguns. Literaltrence gives a great description

    Follow SaltyDog's link by just clicking on it. You'll find generic cleaning instructions there.
    If you don't have instructions for taking your pistols apart, phone or e-mail Ruger and tell them, and they'll send you the proper book.
    For the Springfield, look (via Google) for their website. There may be instructions there, or at least a "contact us" link to click on, to get instructions.
    Same for the S&W: look at their website.

    Chad,

    Youtube has some great step by step videos along with a list of needed supplies.

    So dose Sig and Springfield Arms.

    That is the link SaltyDog posted. It will give you the info you need. The YouTube approach would also get you to where you want to be. In the manuals for the weapons you are going to clean will have take down instructions like how to remove a slide and the barrel from the slide etc.

    All this is considering that you have picked up a cleaning kit. You can get one at Walmart that can clean several calibers. If it does not have the calibers you need there are brushes sold by themselves that you can add to the kit. Though most kits have most the calibers you need. It's always good to pick up extra brushes for another day.

    Steve is pointing you in the right direction. If you do not have the manual, Springfield has the XD manuals online that you can download in pdf format. I did just that when I sold my XD, downloaded it and burned it to a CD to go with the gun, (I lost the manual )

    Don't use WD40. Go to Wally World and pick up some Hoppes #9 and gun oil. WD40 tends to get gummy over time and also is a dust bunny magnet. Just my .02.

    I'll add one item to the kit:

    Nitrile or latex gloves.

    They can be purchased at the drug store or walley world, etc. Makes cleaning and lubing your weapon a more pleasant experience for your skin.

    But I like the smell of Hoppes on my skin. It's cleaner and cologne all in one.

    Eeew.

    Wait'l one of them lil' plastic bottles cracks in your range bag, gets on your truck seat and trashes everything in sight you touch it with, then, the smell follows you around for a week and a half like it's stuck on your upper lip....

    You'll think it smells like cat pee too....

    After decades of use, I can't even look at the stuff anymore. The smell flat makes me wretch......

    Hoppes is a solvent, not a lubricant.

    Use the Rem oil Wipes on the outside.

    Shouldn't need grease.

    Ruger manuals are available on line also.

    Only take one gun apart at a time.

    How many and how long have you had these guns?

    Have you ever fired them?

    Good luck
