SJB,

I use a silicone inpregnated cloth made by Hoppes. There are numerous other companies that make them as well. Here is one made by Birchwood Casey at Gamalies for $4.95.

A piece of old T-shirt sprayed with silicon and stored in a zip lock bag has served me very well for several years.

If you are giong to use a towel, use a microfibre towel. You can buy them by the bag at Lowes, Home Depot etc. Great for polishing cars, stainless steel appliances. will not scratch.

Go to kozak.com and order the small 2.9 cloth. Works excellent and does a great job. I use them for many items. Works well on Seitz receivers as well as clenzoil and microfibre towel..

Pro Shot makes a great silicone cloth that is around $5.00.


Silicone Cloth 14" x 15" -210 Square Inches

Our Silicone cloth has become a shooters favorite, made of double napped 100% American cotton flannel and double treated with pure silicone.

Removes fingerprints, potentially corrosive epidermal oils, polishes, and cleans. Packaged in a reclosable poly bag.

After use place cloth back into reclosable poly bag to help cloth stay moist after use.

I have a chamois that I use. Have had it for 41 years! Yeppers -41 years. Awesome - like a great pair of well worn blue jeans. Scraped the paint off of an old metal BandAid box and have carried the chamois in that container ever since.

Used all kinds of gun oil, grease etc. It is soft and plaint as ever.

Start a tradition today!

An old gunsmith I used to run with years ago wouldl have a fit when I used a silicone rag. He always said the silacone always penatrated the metal to deep and give him fits when he had to blue one. Said sometimes it left the metal different shades if you got it in the light just right. I also used to build metal working machines for a business I ran. The powder coaters let me know under no circumstances do not us WD40 on the metal that gets powder coated. No matter how hard the would sandblast the could not get it all remove before powder coating. You could see the differnceen powder coated. I could not bring myself to use a silacon on guns. Figure just a precaution. Bill
