Well, ...... Ballistol is the safest and least toxic of all the gun cleaning solutions. I, also, use Flitz Metal Polish on my bores; and, if I've got a really leaded up bore, I'll let it soak overnight in (Ready?) Break-Free CLP. I occasionally use Lucas Gun Oil; but, like Rem Oil it's often way too light to stay on ALL of a gun's exposed metal surfaces for long.

For relatively light cleaning or for up to 3-4 months of storage I, also, use Wal-Mart Pharmacy mineral oil. I cut each 16 ounce bottle with an ounce of Isopropyl Alcohol. Whenever you clean a gun you should always be wearing Nitrile or latex disposable gloves. I buy mine in 100 count boxes.

The most common gun cleaning mistakes I see people make is that they often don't soak the bore overnight (or for several hours) the way that they should if they really want to get the gun clean; AND, 'shooters in the know' have always told me to lightly swab out the bore a day, or two, later in order to get whatever gaseous residue has been, 'trapped in the metal' and slowly leaches out.



NOTE: The use of Flitz Metal Polish obviates the need to soak a bore overnight; BUT, it's a whole lot of extra brushing, too.

If I recall there did not seem to be any instances.

I use the same. As a matter of fact I use it to clean my firearms also. Stopped using Hoppes #9.

I'm still holding onto my Hoppes No. 9 and Hoppes Copper Solvent. As I finish off the non-Ballistol products, I'm not going to replace them.

Most gun oils and motor oils come from the same place. They don't have a special well for gun oils. All gun oil is, is cheap motor oil put into little bottles and sold at a jacked up price.

Most of my life I have used Hoppe #9 and Breakfree CLP.

If I could find Ballistol local I would give it a try.

If used correctly any quality cleaner and oil should work.

Being we only use a few drops to begin with I've never seen a big difference, if any, in anything I've ever tried. So I figure If Mobil one is good enough for the Harley it's plenty good enough for the Glock or anyone of my other pistols or rifles. Glad to report all pistols, rifles and shotguns are all running smoothly without any unusual signs of wear. Even my M1 garand and SKS seem to like it.
