    Hoppe No 9, the best perfume for men!

    Oil? Any oil you can find. As long as you regularly lubricate the pistol, it should be fine. Gunbutter used to be a very good oil, but I am not sure you can find it these days.

    I use CLP as a cleaner, and then run the solvent out with Birchwood Casey Gun Scrubber. I use a toothbrush and Q-Tips to get inside tight spaces. I then lube with Mobil 1 motor oil. I relube every two weeks or so to keep the weapon well lubricated. Cleaning takes maybe 20 minutes, re-oiling is a 3 minute procedure at best.

    Except of course "peanut oil". I said this because we had a customer at the range I used to work part time his Walther PPK .380 keeps malfunctioning. We asked, because it's way too gummed up, what oil he used. He said peanut oil.

    I should have clarified that, I guess. Let me rephrase: any kind of gun oil, motor oil but not food oil !!! Olive oil is fine for your salad or food, but I am not sure how good it is for your guns! LoRL
