I have been giving my pistols a bath with dawn, then rinsing, and drying in the oven at 170 deg. Then I liberally coat them down with Rem Oil. I clean the bore and cylinder out with alcohol of course before using. But I picked up a bottle of Hoppes Black Powder Solvent and Patch Lube. I'm going to try this stuff out. Reading all of ya'lls posts makes me want to get away from petro based lubes I guess.
