    I have a 2nd gen G19 and there is a lot of dirt and-or dead skin on the edge of each one. I'm just curious what is the best way to remove all of this? I've tried using breakfree and the brush that came with one of my cleaning kits. But it isn't getting all the dirt off. If I use a brass brush, will that scratch up the slide or anyone else have a better idea?

    I'd use a toothbrush and canned brake cleaner, or simple green. Don't use a metal brush here.

    Hoppes 9 and a nylon brush. Should come off pretty easy.

    Just use a Q-Tip. I use Q-Tips and toilet paper and RemOil to clean my Glocks. They're Glocks man, just have at it and use your head.

    BTW :welcome:

    Wet the area with clp and let it sit for 20 mins.
    Come back and use a wooden toothpick and a brush to remove

    Well if this were me I'd use good old soap and hot water and then dry it off and then use a toothbrush or a plastic scouring pad with gun oil or any oil .
    Its a Glock and any scratches you put on it will not make it rust , besides all mine are working Glocks , I use them when ever and where ever . If mine get scratched or dirty , I dont care . They were built for function not fashion :wavey:

    Used q-tips soaked in hoppes on another nickel firearm that was pretty dirty in those areas.

    I'm not worried about how it looks. Its been building up from me just dry firing for the past month. I haven't had time to go to a range recently, so anything I can do with it, why not??

    I know what you mean. I usually have to use something "sorta" sharp to get all the crap out of there. I have a nice plastic screwdriver that works well. Sharp enough to scrap that crud out but not sharp or hard enough to scratch the gun.

    There is a small brush made for cleaning golf club grooves with that is perfect for using on slides.
