Someone suggested Hoppes #9 to get those brass marks that appear around the extractor area on the slide.

Got some this evening finally - does not work... At least it was only $3. But, any other ideas? Stuff I don't have to order online but might find at a store?

Grind 'em off with a file, or maybe a grinding wheel, then spray paint with a color to match.........then again, maybe a good cleaner would really be better.............. :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

You're kidding. I've been using the stuff for years to get the brass marks off the deflector on my AR-15s.

Sorry Ship, I steared you wrong.

It'll work. Plus its the cats PJs for cleaning your bore. Run a couple wet patches thru, wait 20 min. bronze brush a few times, dry patches, oil.......done.

Maybe in a month or 2 I'll break down and try it.

I really wanted it to take the marks off of the fullsize USP I sold a couple of weeks back. I was gonna get those off before I sold it.

I still have a USP compact, though... So, I still need it.
