    Sweet's 7.62 solvent is a good bore cleaner--very good matter of fact. Thing is--it's ammonia based and special care must be taken when using this or any ammonia based cleaner in a chrome lined bore. Break Free CLP actually neutralizes ammonia based cleaners and should be used immediately after such a product contacts a chrome lined bore. We're talking mainly rifle bore cleaning though.

    You misconstrued my meaning entirely. I enjoy seeing vehicles people care for in the way you have. It's a very unique and beautiful finish.

    I've actually washed parts of my gun that way too. Just use the blow dryer to completely dry, then lube.

    Hot water and dishwashing soap is a great way yo clean any metal. Gets rid of grease and grimes instantly. The hot metal drys quickly with a little compressed air and a quick coat of lube does it. I have used this on engine parts, machine parts, and all my firearms. It works for a complete teardown cleaning but I do not advise for a quick, field strip cleaning - too many places to hold moisture.
    Plastic guns are easy - wash the barrels - wipe the plastic - relube - shoot!!!!!

    We had one officer in my old department (back when we issued stainless Ruger wheel guns) that took his apart and put it in the dishwasher!

    Pine oil cleanser and hot water works well also. Plus your clean greaseless gun smells great also.

    If there was one sure fire best product for everything---I do beleive I wouldn't need all the space I'm taking up now for the firearms upkeep!

    I use Prolix lubricating solvent for most of it, and then put Slide Glide on the rails.

    I've used Dawn and hot water with no adverse affects. You MUST, however, be sure it is completely dry, and then lube as usual.

    Seems to me that Dawn is a lot less caustic than most solvents out there.
