I use a small amount of Hoppes #9 on a patch wrapped around a bore brush, stroke the bore a few times to wet the inside. The debris and carbon collects on the patch.
Clean out with a fresh patch wrapped to dry out. Then with another clean patch, I place two or three drops of Rem-Oil to lube the bore, then take that patch and wipe the outer metal surfaces of the barrel, recoil rod and spring. They wipe to remove any excess which helps dirt and dust from accumilating. Tiny bit of oil on the metal rails, that's it unless I do a striker channel cleaning,that gets a Q-Tip dusting and some air pressure at times.
