Clean new k6s dc

Just picked up a new k6s dc. Wonderful revolver. I just wanted to check if there are any cleaning precautions I need to look out for. Can I just clean it as normal with hoppes #9? I can't seem to find any info or it so I thought I'd ask.

Hey, thanks for that. I just wanted to make sure I didn't have to watch for any precautions with the dlc finish. I figured I didn't but figured I better ask.

I only use Ballistol on my revolvers. Cleans and lubricates at the same time. Just spray it down and use an old toothbrush and some patches. The more you use it, the easier and faster it cleans each time. It's also good for both wood and rubber grips. Love that stuff, but your significant other may oppose the smell at first.
