    A search for "cleaning" in the subject line finds a number of previous discussions, including: this one.

    I clean fairly often, so there isn't build-up of anything that some folks seem to have with ill-maintained firearms. What I typically use includes:
    • Hoppe's #9 for bad bores, if needed.
    • Break Free CLP spray, for general removal of crud/grease.
    • Brass brushes, nylon brushes, patches + jig ... to remove the fouling once broken down by the cleaners.
    • A bore snake. I use one dry, for cleaning the bore; and one lightly lubed with oil, for final prep.
    • A good oil, such as Militec-1, Remington Oil, Hoppes oil.
    • A good gun cloth, to wipe down the outside surfaces, for removal of fingerprints.
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

    Stainless revolver, get lead away cloth
    It's great for cleaning the powder stains on stainless. It will remove bluing
    There are no problems in life too large to be handled by the use of small arms and high explosives

    In god we trust, all others are suspects
