    Cleaning my glock

    Years back when I was a 1911 die hard cleaning my gun every time I went to the range was part of the afternoon.

    Now I shoot and shoot and shoot then think oh yeah I should clean my gun.

    Revolvers, ak's and glocks let me enjoy shooting more and cleaning less. What's not to like.

    Glad you like your Glocks... They are made to survive in terrible climates with minimal care...

    Anyone here ever use a product called BreakFree Powder Blast on a Glock?Its a spray can and its says it blasts away powder and other firing residues, just wondering how it would affect the polymer frame and such?

    Doesn't sound bad but I would be more concerned of getting solvent and oil in the striker chamber than the polymer.

    Once I grasped that the time spent cleaning a Glock was actually time spent cleaning dirty lubrication, I was able to get the time spent down to 5min/gun (I've timed it).

    Glock's don't require similar lubrication as the guns I grew up with (or my rifles). They actually work best with light oil only on the recommended points. If you keep the oil light then the rest of the gun, outside the barrel, just wipes clean.

    My clean quick:
    1. Squirt foaming bore cleaner in the barrel and set aside

    2. Clean the slide rails. I use a brass gun pick from proshots and a patch. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B008P...7lL&ref=plSrch The flat side fits perfect. Q-tips work too, I just tend to break them.

    3. Brush off the rest of the slide with a toothbrush. Extra focus on the extractor.

    4. Brush the frame. I use a Gtul magazine brush to clean in just a few strokes http://www.mygtul.com/product/mag-brush then a toothbrush on/arround the connector

    5. Clean the barrel. I use a nylon bore brush so I dont have to remove the brush to pull the rod back through. Finish with two dry patches.

    I keep two pistol rods, one with a brush and one with a jag to save time.

    6. Lube (lightly with light gun oil)

    Done

    Birchwood Casey makes a spray product safe for polymer frames.I use Isopropyl rubbing alcohol that you can buy at walmart for under $2.put on q-tips for hard to reach areas or spray on and use a nylon brush.It dries a few minutes later then lube.

    Glocks are super easy to keep clean. If you only shoot jacketed bullets then the barrel even easier. No real need to buy expensive gimmick cleaners.

    Nowadays I just disassemble my Glocks and put them in the sonic cleaner. I use a 50/50 mix of simple green and water. Afterwards, I rinse with clean water, dry, swab out the FP channel with a Q-tip, check to see if the barrel needs a brush ran through it, oil and reassemble.
