General Cleaning Question (Action Blaster)
Well, here is the story:
So far I have been cleaning my handguns using an approach suggested by an experienced forum member (literaltrance, God Bless him)..The approach is to spray the frame and the slide by hopes 9..wait for around 10 min so the solution will cut thru the gritz and dirt, then blast with a pressurized air can..This has been working flawlesly since February with tens of cleaning sessions..No problems.
lately on my last trip to the range, the guys at the gunshop suggested that I use this product:
They siad it is a combination of a degreaser solution and high pressure, it sounded like the two steps in one can and it is cheaper than the pressurized air can. Anyways, I came this evening from a trip to the range and I started cleaning my handguns..I cleaned the Glock 17 with no problem..Then I started cleaning the SIG P6 and some of that solution was blsated on the P6 old plastic grips..All of the sudden the grips appered as if they were covered with a white powder. Then I had to wipe the grips with a little gun oil on a cloth to remove the white stuff..I am not sure if I succeeded or I just covered things up..I think I might have damaged the old plastic grips on the P6..
Anybody knows what has happened..Is the chemical too strong it will detroy the plastic grips..However when I cleaned my Glock, this stuff was dripping all ove the Glock polymer frame, and nothing happened.
Any advise guys whether I can use this stuff or shall i stop using it..Well, credit is to be given, this thing cuts thru the gritz and dirt like a flashing light, and the interior of the frames and the slides are crisp clean..I then lubed and re assembeled the guns..I am just worried about the sig P6 grips..Have I damaged them..
Any one with a similar experience to share or shed some light would be appreciated.
