HM here's a link to the Hoppes brand foaming cleaner
I've never tried it personally but I've heard a lot of people say how good it works.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.

i use a variety of stuff .the hoppes elite? is great can clean your gun then use that stuff and more comes out of the "clean gun"I also use bore gel,and scent free gun oil.then everything gets wiped down with a silicone rag.clips and actions left open so they can "breathe" and for safety

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

For a lubricant, I use Mobil 1 10W-30 full synthetic motor oil. It works well - especially on semi-autos in cold weather.
