I am getting some Truglo TFO's installed on my XD-9 service. I cant wait, it should be sweet. I read one post after doing a search that said not to use gun cleaner on the sites. I use Hoppes elite gun cleaner and CLP breakfree for oiling. Do you have to avoid touching the sights with these products like its the plague? If you get any on it, do you wipe it off quickly and will it be fine? Thanks guys.

I usually clean my XD with CLP, not my sights. :wink: I just use a patch to wipe down my XD with the CLP and go right by the sights. If you get CLP on the black part of the sight I seriously doubt they will melt and fall off. If you are talking about the actually sight (the colored part) just take a Q-tip and wipe it off.

I use MPro7 exclusively, and have no problems with it on the TFOs on my XD. The stuff is so safe they say you can drink it, but man does it clean great.

When I put protective lube on the outside of the slide I use a patch and FP-10, and am careful not to touch the sights.
