I bought the Outers cleaning kit and the bore solvent that comes with it can only be used in a WELL VENTILATED area. If you don't, it will make you dizzy...I know.
I switched to synthetic Hoppes Elite cleaner and oil - no fumes and no odor. The oil is great, you can feel it sticking to the metal and I could actually feel the difference in how easier the slide moved!
I bought some of the "gel" MPro7 awhile back & couldn't tell the difference between it and Murphy's Oil Soap. If I want to use soap on a gun I've got a cupboard full in the kitchen.
Nowadays I use FP-10 for a general CLP. On guns like the XD and Ruger MKII that are a PITA to detail strip I use whatever brand of nitro solvent that I can get in a spray can; usually Outer's ([email protected]'s).
I am addicted to # 9. Every time I smell it I am instantly reminded of Autumn mornings long ago. The crisp, cold smell of fresh arctic air and fallen wood. The soft crunch of dead leaves under boot. All the good stuff of early hunting experiences... 8)
