I think the main problem they'd run into there is that there are so many different opinions amongst gun owners as to what solvents and lubes are best, they'd have to make a bunch of different varieties just to capture any meaningful sales. I'd much prefer if they focused on making Q tips that are more tightly wound at the tips so that they don't unravel as quickly when cleaning; I'm more than capable of adding my own solvent or lube later.

kf6tac - I totally agree. Half the time they start coming apart just riding in the toolbox for an extended period, and when I go to use one it's already a ball of fluff. A tighter wind would be great.

You can get better quality q-tips from the instrument supplies vendors.. They can be expensive however.. Ron

Yeah, I've been looking into getting some of those. It'd also get my significant other off my back about raiding her stash of Q-Tips.

+1 ...

People can think there gun is clean after wiping it down with those flimsy patches , or w/e ...

But when you give it the qtip treatment , you will discover that your gun wasn't as clean as you thought !

Plus , you can really get all the gunk out that pretty much anything else cannot.

Qtips should rename there product to Guntips , they can avoid the lawsuits from people puncturing their eardrums and reach a whole new market.

If you think your guns clean and you didn't use qtips ...

It's not

I think James recommended the "makeup appliers" next to the qtips at the grocery store ... They are a more refined qtip I believe ...

I am picking some up tomorrow

The first time I cleaned my XDS was with patches .... I thought the gun was immaculate , and no one could have told me otherwise...

Then I saw a post somewhere and when I was at the store I picked some qtips up because I read they are "good for the rails" ...

So I stripped her and in one swipe I was shocked -- the qtip turned black ! I just cleaned it !!!!

Then I saw the light !

Qtips are more important then a lot of stuff we buy in regards to fun accessories.

So after I clean all the crap out of the gun and use a qtip or something similar. What should I use to relub the slid and all that. I use clp right now to clean the outside of the gun. Have not done much to the inside. I have run about 112 rounds through the gun without any troubles but will need to clean and lube it up here soon. And I want to do it right so it continues to perform like it is.


Edit: I do agree with this these are great guns.
