    I use MPro-7 for a solvent. Love the stuff. Purportedly it's so nontoxic you can even drink it, but I have no plans to try; I prefer single malt Scotch. Usually use STOS for grease.

    "Shooter's Choice " is the company name. The product I use is the Shotgun and Choke Cleaner.

    In cowboy shooting, Ballistol is used quite a bit as an oil. I like Rem-Oil as well. I've used Remington solvent and Hoppe's.

    Love the smell of Hoppe's #9 but switched to Shooters Choice when it worked so well on my AR-15. Wow that stinky stuff is great on shotguns too. Shooters Choice also makes a grease that comes in a dispenser. I just squeeze some onto the hinge of my BT and it works great. Leve em both.

    Carb cleaner followed up by Mil-tec. The Mil-tec doesn't gunk up near as bad as the CLP and it keeps the ol'M4 going during those 1000 round range sessions. Not too shabby on the 11/87 either.

    Nyoil , G96 grease and a good solvent for rifle barrels. Extreme Coppermelt is the very best and I am looking for a way to get it back in the U.S. Barnes CR-10 does a pretty good job. But Coppermelt is the very best.
