Cleaning elite combat

Post by inletguy » Wed Mar 20, 2019 8:54 pm

CIeaned my gun when unboxed it

. Normally after shooting, I clean bore( Ballistol and bore snake), chamber , breach face...shoot 200 rounds, and then field strip,
clean, lube. using this protocol, I stripped , cleaned, etc. It was really dirty when I broke it down....using Speer Lawman 124 grain which should be good.
can anyone comment on why it should be so dirty??

Depends on your definition of dirty, but FWIW, both my SFX and Elite are dirtier after shooting than my other pistols, but nothing dramatic.

I have taken to cleaning all of my semis' ramps with a little Slip 725 cleaner on a felt Dremel tip (no polishing compound). Works very quickly.

Can you compare this product with Ballistol? Thanks-are use Balesto to spray into the boar, let it rest 15 minutes then run bore snake through eight times-also wipe down the outside of the gun with it -Also use it Winfield stripping to clean the frame and slide-use it anywhere in the manual says to lube

I have used Ballistol in the past as a gun lube and still sometimes use it for lubing brass (the little spray can also fits great into a range bag for a field lube issue), but only ever as a lube, not as a cleaner.
