    Gunsmithing
    Hi, I am looking for a EASY wipe on wipe off product that will simply give wooden furniture (rifles/shotguns) a good cleaning. Don't want to take away too much essential elements that would be needed for longevity. but esp do not want add any oils or something that may damage or change the...
  2. Boat cleaning tips

    Outdoors
    Some of you may have seen my post about the old Boston Whaler I recently purchased. The old girl needs quite a bit of work - and a lot of cleaning - so I thought I'd share a couple of cleaning tips that have served me well. The hull has around fifteen years of grime and algae growth on the...

    General Firearms Discussion
    Its time for me to buy a GOOD cleaning rod. I have several of the pull through "snake" devices. I have an older NON COATED rod, but know I need better than this!! SO......tell me what to get. I see coated ones and carbon fiber rods, etc. What do y'all use?? Jeff
  4. Cleaning a Lub-Sizer???

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I recently picked up a couple of used Lyman 450 Lub-Sizers. Both are caked in old lube. Does anyone have a recommended way to clean them up? Thought about using a heat gun to soften it or pouring boiling water on it.
  5. A little cleaning and a scope swap

    Firearms Gallery
    . Swapped over a vari x 3 3.5x10x50 on the 7mm mag bdl and adjusted the trigger. She is good to go to the range now. I forgot how much I liked these old guns
  6. Need a Third Hand for Gun Cleaning

    General Firearms Discussion
    I’m sure most of us here have experienced the need for a third hand when cleaning or assembling a long gun of some type. Heck, there’s been times I wished I’d had a third hand to when doing maintenance on a couple of handguns. So, to that end, I’m considering purchasing a Gun Cleaning Vise ala...
  7. Opinion on cleaning mildew off leather sling.

    General Firearms Discussion
    I am cleaning some rifles that were in storage for a long time. One leather sling is badly mildewed. It is tan colored. I think that I took some laundry detergent and cleaned one before. And after drying out put a preservative.
  8. Little details - lense cleaning

    Optics and Accessories
    What do y'all use to clean your scope lenses with? I use these. Stick a couple in your pocket. Do a good job.
  9. Cleaning up an old warhorse

    Firearms Gallery
    She's battle worn for sure, but she's all matching and a non-import.
  10. Cleaning products

    General Firearms Discussion
    Has anyone used Frog Lube products. If not what's the best cleaner and lubricant that you use.
  11. Sunday Spring cleaning and organizing of the Japanese display

    Mil-Surp/C&R/Black Powder
    I spent a good chunk of the day reorganizing and cataloging all of the items in my Japanese display and I finished earlier this evening. Keeping track of serial numbers and overall condition of 14 rifles, 1 handgun, and 7 bayonets can be a pain but it's fun as I get to handle all kinds of items...
  12. Favorite Mosin Model?

    Long Guns
    As the title suggests
  13. Cleaning questions

    General Firearms Discussion
    What do you use for cleaning and lubrication of your guns? Has anyone made a good all in one cleaner/lubricant? I got some Otis lube and the spray just isn't controllable.
  14. Cleaning Loaded Ammo

    Reloading/Ammunition
    Just curious if anybody else cleans their loaded ammo in the tumbler? Getting ready to load some, and noticed that the brass is a little discolored (it's "pre" walnut-mineral spirit-wax media). Planning on cleaning it in again after I load it.
  15. Cleaning monocore Aluminum 22LR suppressors

    AR's, AK's, Silencers /Class III
    Did a search on methods to clean a 22LR suppressor, the threads I found were a few years old so it seemed an update to the question would be applicable. Understand that different methods can and cannot be used based upon which material the suppressor is constructed with. I have a Gemtech...
  16. Cleaning your Air Rifle

    Mississippi Air Rifles
    I have heard you dont need to clean an Air Rifle. And I have heard you need to clean your Air Rifle. And I have heard you need to clean your Air Rifle a little bit. So having spare time to read I did some reading on Air Rifle cleaning. But I'm going to narrow down the 50 pages of "Cleaning your...
  17. Cleaning Stainless

    Handguns
    What do y'all use for cleaning stainless? Just bought some Gun Scrubber, and AM NOT impressed. Even good old Hoppes #9 and elbow grease aren't really doing that good of a job. This worked pretty good: Hoppe's 9 - The Gun Care People Thinking about trying this next: Hoppe's 9 - The Gun Care...
  18. Anyone use a carbon fiber cleaning road?

    Gunsmithing
    I know someone who is a very competitive F-Class shooter who is fanatically opposed to using a stainless rod even from the breech end for fear of damaging the crown or bore and chamber so he uses one of these. On this example, I bought one and the second time I used it, the piece of junk...
  19. S&W 38 DA needed a good cleaning

    Gunsmithing
    Hello everyone. I got this old S&W 38 DA 3rd model a couple of weeks ago. It was all locked up and the top break function was rusted shut. I got a great deal on it and last weekend I got a chance to get inside it. I hit it hard with CLP Break Free and let it sit a few hours. When I got inside...
  20. Gun cleaning kits

    Gunsmithing
    First off, let me say that I hate plastic boxes for anything. Over the years I've accumulated several commercial cleaning kits, and they all sucked. Right now I've got most of my cleaning stuff in a small steel box, totally unorganized, and it's less than satisfactory. So I'm thinking I'll...
