I was going to leave that youtube clip alone but I think that guy who made it must own stock in lube companies...man that seemed like a lot of over lubing....


My Qs get exposed to the ocean and have gone "swimming" more than a time or two and I'd never use that much lube on any of them either for cleaning or for getting them ready for carry.

Well I suppose there are as many methods for cleaning and lubing your Q as there are Q owners. I use Ballistol and very sparingly at that. I may on occasion use a tiny drop of Machine gunners' lube on the rail but past that nothing extra for cleaning my barrels, frames or anything else.

If my weapons go swimming I give them an ultra sonic bath in warm Simple Green than clean as normal.
Lic0rice and Slowmotion like this.

I use G96 Gun Treatment over the whole gun, including the barrel. I even spray a little on a shaving brush and do the outside of the gun, doesn’t hurt the polymer parts. Doesn’t smell so no complaints from the wife. If the barrels really dirty try G96 bore solvent or Shooter’s Choice.

I use it to clean assemblies I don't want to take apart. Works great. Just hose it down. It leaves a dry lube.

I've seen a few tests, where the one shot performed very well.

I love G96 gun oil. I buy it only because to me it smells like bubblegum.

Yep, i’d Rather clean my guns at the kitchen table than in the heat of a Florida garage. 😰

Blue Wonder products work for me

Did you see the one guy does 50-80 passes in his barrel!

Whoa. I run the copper brush through 3-4 times then a few patches - clean as a whistle. 50?

Anyhow I use the Blue Wonder products. No smell so the kitchen table is available to me. There are many excellent products though. No doubt.

Yes, I've seen more wear caused to a gun from excessive (or improper) cleaning than actually shooting it. Look at the muzzle of most M1 Garand's :-)
