I've got a 50+ year collection of gun cleaning stuff, when ever something new comes out I'll probably buy it, try it then go back to what I've always used. I've gotten away from rods (remember when the one piece Dewey rods were all the rage) and like the bore snakes for a quick pull through at the range. For more detailed cleaning I like the Otis kits with pull through cables and the patches they use. When it comes to solvents I grew up on Hoppes No. 9 and still use it, sometimes I'll go down to my work bench and open a bottle just to smell it, LOL.
To me oil is oil, I've used most of the big names and really can't tell the difference between them. I've got to confess to experimenting with a tube of Brian Enos's Slide Glide and before you jump all over me I know that kimber says not to use any kind of grease on their guns. The gun I'm trying it on is very well worn in, over 16,000 rounds have been down it's tube and it runs very well with the grease. I've noticed that the slide and rails don't seem to collect as much crap as they do with oil.
