I use Eezox as I have never had the need to use anything stronger to remove powder residue. You can use BW Gun Cleaner on the slide, it is safe. I suggest you apply a bit to a cleaning patch first, and wipe where required.
If you use Armadillo on the slide, you should never need to use a cleaner again, at least this has been the case for me. Hope this helps.
I'm with Old School. I used the Armadillo first on my XD, now on every gun I own. It does as it says.
I don't think there is anything else out there that does more to protect em. Unless ya go nuts and use Turtle Wax or something drastic. :shock:
One silly thing I like about using the Armadillo stuff is that it takes a while to work with it. Cleaning my weapons is like a ritual to me. Nothin is more relaxing to me than crackin open some cold ones, crankin some jams, breakin em down, and nit pick over every nook and cranny. Leaving a beautiful clean work of craftsmanship. I've been like that for years....one of the few times I can unwind. "Leave me alone I'm cleanin" :wink:
