    The inside of my range gun looks like someone vomited carbon everywhere - hasn't been cleaned all year and has eaten somewhere between 5-8k rounds.
    But, do you use grease or oil?

    I never use grease, so it never dawned on me Chris, until you mentioned it.

    I tried it once, not again.

    I've been tring to tell ya this for quite some time now, The 1911 platform is the only way to go, just give into your temptations and start carring that 1911

    break free CLP works great. Even loosens carbon and powder on my guns.

    Ok Bruce - OK!! Could well be I'll give the Para some carry time now!

    Re 226 again - took it to club earlier and blasted two 15 round mags thru rapid - and - using the dreaded S&B! 100% - perfect. So strikes me grease is out for sure and will now be Militec1 - or yes even dear ol' CLP.

    SIG goes back on the belt tonight.

    That is good news Chris!
    Give FP-10 a try too, it's all I've used since '88.

    P95, sorry you've had such a frustrating time. However, reading through you're post has been enlightening. There's lots of stuff I don't know, so I've picked up some good info. I have been using Break Free, so you're experience is reassuring. Glad you got it sorted out.

    OD and OG - yes it is both pleasing and relieving - tho I keep thinking as I review the ''saga'' just how much I should have been more observant and thought more critically. I did the rather stupid thing of making assumptions or simply not looking hard enough etc. Might have shortened the whole process.!

    I think grease would be OK if and only if, a clean-up is done early - because strikes me once that grease gets contaminated and starts effectively thickening up, then for std pressure ammo - the problems are likely to occur.

    I shall monitor rail lube now and see how well the Militec1 persists so as to ensure there is still adequate lube effect - tho Militech do claim some ''surface impregnation'' effects from their product even when it appears to have been displaced.

    Wish I could 'bring' Bob - plus other goodies and see your ''family'' too.

    One day maybe but sure would not be yet awhile. I need a private plane - oh and of course the cash to support it!
