    Military Gun Solvent? (small arms)

    Do any of you old-timers remember the banana scented solvent that we used to clean our M-14's and .45 pistols?? This would be back in 66, 67, 68 time frame. It was good stuff, and as far as I know, no body got cancer from the stuff. If you were a small arms guy back then and remember this solvent, could you point me in a direction to find out who made the product for the military? Thanks a bunch in advance. Stay Safe!!
