--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Y'all,

I have a CZ75B, and when taking it down for cleaning, I notice a lot of crud down in the workings inside the grip area (where the magazine sits). I tried to wipe it out with q-tips, but had only limited success.

What do you guys do to keep this stuff cleaned up?

Thanks!

If there's room, use an old toothbrush and Hoppe's Nitro Solvent.....after you've cleaned it with the Nitro Solvent, clean it again with rubbing alcohol. If a toothbrush is too large, go to WallyWorld and buy some brushes for cleaning an electric razor.

I save all of my worn-out toothbrushes for purposes such as this. You can custom bend the handles by heating it with a cigarette lighter and bending to the shape you want.

I agree with X however, if all else fails then get a
gallon of solvent, remove grip panels, and place
the gun in a container that won't scratch the
finish, let it soak for an hour or so, then vigorously
shake/agitate it in beneath the solvent until clean.

Then just wipe any remaining loose visible crud(if any)
also wiping any excess solvent, let the gun dry, then
oil/lube internals lightly as normal and also place a light
coating of oil/lube(I prefer synthetic for both aplications)
on the rest of the metal of the entire gun, i.e. barrel,
frame, slide, both inside & out.

I spray my desert eagle down with gun scrubber.the hogue grips do not seem affected by the solvent.after each shooting I completely dissemble the slide, barrel,springs,and the platform and spray everything down with gun scrubber.then I oil everything trigger,firing pin,safeties,etc and put the gun away in its case.the foam inside absorbs the extra oil making this a great storage compartment.when time comes to shoot,wipe down the gun and your ready to go.

I use gun scrubber too, and Eezox synthetic CLP, been
using it for years, a bit pricey but have yet to see
anything beat it!

usually spray / flood the hard to reach areas with Gun Scrubber, as well.
