I bought a new GALCO holster for my P99. It is black leather. I never thought about it, but after a few hours with my gun in the holster, it is staining my Titanium slide BLACK !:eek: What can i use to take it off? Anyone else have this problem?:confused:

Get some break cleaner and try that. Also contact galco and ask them/ see if they have a way to prevent the staining process. It might just be die coming off and rubbing in a bit.

Then get tetra or militec-1 and put some one the slide and shoot, then reapply they should bond to the metal and help prevent that.

Just a warning........just in case...........do NOT get brake cleaner on the FRAME. Take the slide OFF to try that.

Just thought I'd mention it.................... ;)

Both of us were talking about Break Cleaner, which can be found in your local automotive section.

Tomovich Break Cleaner won't hurt your weapon as long as its chlorine free.

I use tons of brake cleaner in my shop and I only use non-chlorinated. I can think of a sweet set of grips I ruined on a Walther P5 with brake cleaner. Some few plastics will be resistant to it, but MOST plastics will melt!
