    It shouldn't. I use Hoppes #9 exclusively and have had no problems on my SW99. It stinks though.

    Can't speak for the Sigma, but it's never harmed my Glocks. Of course, I only use it twice a year on my Glocks.

    The stuff does reek, though, so I do my cleaning outside.

    The only thing I know will hurt a poly gun is chlorine. You get it in some carb/brake cleaners. Hoppes will not hurt your pistol.

    No it won't do anything. Try G96, it smells much better

    Simple Green or other dish soaps will not hurt it and do a bang up job of cleaning.

    The Hoppes hasn't hurt my M&P's

    Hope it didn't hurt that beretta before I gave it back because that's what I used. Yeah the wife wasn't none too happy about the smell.
