    Default BEST way to lube your HK?

    What's your preferred method for lubing your HK.

    1) which oils/greases/lubricants/clps do you use?

    2) what tools do YOU think is the best?
    boresnakes? simple cleaning rods? q-tips?

    3) how much grease and where do you concentrate on?

    4) How dry/wet do you keep your firearm when you'll take it to the range the next day? How dry/wet if you're storing it for a period of time?

    Of course, videos would help a lot. I can't seem to find any detailed ones on google or youtube at the moment.

    This information can be found under "Section 7" (Cleaning & Maintenance) of any P Series, HK45 Series, or USP Series manual.

    does everyone use the HK cleaning kit? b/c I don't so far... Been using break-free CLP and hoppes9 elite. I use a boresnake in addition to the brass brushes... and I've never done a major cleaning before even though it's way overdue for one. Any suggestions on a major cleaning solvent?

    I use the same stuff as you. I run them not quite as wet as I see guys do on their Sigs and they seem to like that.

    You shouldn't need to use a stronger solvent. Use small amounts of Hoppes 9 and a toothbrush on the really grimey areas inside the slide. You can also use compressed air to blow out the inside of the frame.

    Militec 1 treatment
    Hoppes and Eezox to clean
    TW25b and Zero Friction on vital parts

    I use swabs, brushes, flitz cloth, Q-tips, pipe cleaners, old flannel night gown my wife donated to the cause.

    FWIW the HK repair guys use FP10 in the shop to lube the guns, including the bore for storage. I asked about the TW25b when I spoke to them, and they did not like it. Their justification was that the carbon and dirt latches on. I used to put the TW25b on the slide rails, like on my Sig, but they stated not to as it was not necessary.

    I use Weapon Shield and really like it. It is made by the original formulator of FP-10. It is supposed to be an improved version of FP-10. It works really well in my opinion.

    I use M-PR0 7 for general cleaning, Hoppes for the bore, Militec 1 for lube and then a little Lithishield grease when I think that it is necessary (not very often). Oh and I have needle tip applicators of both Weaponshield & Gun butter that I use for the rails.

    I make use of all of the standard tools - boresnakes, rod & patches, q-tips, toothbrushes &c and I clean each pistol after they have been shot. I shoot each gun about once a month and clean and lube them all the same way.

    I don't do safe queens or storage
