    Or can i just soak the front half ?

    That way I only have to oil up the front half after everything - a lot easier.

    Then, of course, oil it to protect it.
    Unless you take apart all of the insides of the slide first, i would not submerge it into any liquids, if I were you.

    As long as you take the rsa off, you can soak it as much as you want. If a cleaning solvent eats your stainless steel slide, it wasn't a stainless steel slide to begin with.
    Keep in mind that during machining, it was cleaned with solvents and machined with oil flowing over the cutting surface.

    That's why I thought I might just submerge the front half affected - I wouldn't have to disassemble the whole slide. Can always do that later during a thorough cleaning but was hoping to just work on one issue at a time. I know how much this would dry the affected areas and it would be a lot easier to lube the RSA section etc. later.

    Looks like the plan is to try the iso first and the cleaner second.

    On a quick aside - barkeepers works great on stainless - thanks - but in reading, check out what i found it does to bluing - https://www.waguns.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=29747

    Yes, just the front would be ok. If the entire slide, you would want to disassemble the slide afterwards.

    Disassemble the slide for what reason? You're advising him to remove the roll pins, fp, fp block etc.?

    Put the cleaner on a patch and let it sit on the problem area, don't put it everywhere, it's not needed there.

    Tried the iso on a patch and left there for 1/2 hr with no help. Haven't tried the brake cleaner yet. No chance to get some. Will do tomorrow.
