Question about using Mineral Spirits to clean a gun
I was wondering if anyone had any experience using mineral spirits or other solvents to clean their gun? I recently used a dry cleaning solvent ( main chemical is mineral spirits ) on my Springfield XD40, i soaked the barrel and slide in it for about 15 mins and then used my air compressor to blow out the excess, it seemed to work really well and removed a ton of build up from the weapon, this was a used gun and it was the first time i really got in there and cleaned it. I was wondering if anyone else has used this or had problems with it? I did a final cleaning with hopps #9 and lubed it when i was finished. Thanks for the help!!
