Alright it is time that we put all of our favorite types of cleaners under one topic. tongue.gif

This is all your opinion so don't hold back. ;)

 

My favorite would have to be for barrels-birchwood&casey bore scrubber

 

and for parts it would be hoppe's elite gun cleaner. smile.gif

What I like to do for choke tubes is use birchwood on the threads and applya light coat to the rest of the choke with rem oil to prevent corrosion, I came up with the idea after a short dispute with other members about choke oil, refer to http://www.benelliusa.com/forums/ultimatebb.php/topic/11/34.html

for details

The only study I have seen on products for corrosion prevention is here:

This was just looking at rust prevention not lubricity.

 

WD-40 did quite well in these tests. I have used WD-40 on the outside of guns before and it has not given me any trouble. I wouldn't use it on internal moving parts.
