Hoppies 9

Hoppies 9, and Gum-out works good to. Just have to make sure you reoil the gun afterward. The Gum-out strips all the oils from the gun. Gum-out works great for cleaning Uzi's too.LOL

Hoppies #9 is a cleaner and gun oil both in one.

I would use Remington oil for your pistols. Great for your semi-auto's pistol.

Yes

I like the Remington oil for my semi-auto's pistol and rifles.

Love those bore snakes. Would not be without one for all calibers and gauges.

hoppe's #9 and remington remoil with teflon are what i trust my guns to. in a pench, wd-40 is acceptable too. i use it mainly out in the field when i really need to clean/lube a gun. also check out www.otisgun.com they have a lot of good stuff for cleaning guns. they offer a coated steel cable to clean the barrel. this minimizes if not eliminates the chance of damaging the rifling in the barrel.
