    Formula 3 (free from Department I work for and Hopps 9 Elite. I use the Formula 3 when I only do a field strip and the Elite for complete breakdown cleaning and lube. I normally use a silicon rag weekly to help the exterior in between cleanings.

    With proper lubrication, wear protection just tails right along.
