I shoot a lot of cast bullet reloads with Bullseye which is a fairly dirty powder. I remove the the barrel and guide rod from the slide and submerge the slide in odorless mineral spirits. I use a toothbrush to scrub the rails, breech face, under the extractor, and other exposed, dirty places.

Barrel gets cleaned with a bronze brush using CLP to get most of the powder fouling. A patch dipped in Hoppes #9 gets run through and I let it sit for as long as it takes me to wipe down the frame internals with a cleaning rag. Barrel then gets clean patches run through it and a final patch with CLP.

If I shoot jacketed ammo, this is the point that I'll use a foaming bore cleaner by Break Free to remove any copper fouling.

Rails and the outside of the barrel get a coating of Slide Glide.

Ok guys I have always thought the included brush was for the magazine. However I clicked on the XD essentionals link on here and SA shows the same brush that comes with it and they call it a bore brush. So I guess indeed it is for cleaning the bore.

I run a few patches of Hoppe's 9 in my barrel and clean up the feed ramp then, if it's really dirty, I run a brush through it. The rest I just look for build up and clean that but usually I just wipe it all down with an old t-shirt. Then I just oil a little on the rails and barrel and a little on the outside.

I used to really over clean my gun because it was my first pistol but now I am more relaxed with it.
