Today I wiped down old oil and re oiled. In the process I was getting a rust colored residue on the patches. Mostly from the underside of the slide and front of spring. I put about 550 rounds through this one and havent shot since last cleaning which there was no residue. Due to ammo cost...
Hi. The Nitride finish on my Usp.45's Hammer seems to be coming off leaving a pinkish color (rust?). Is this normal?
I use Hoppes #9 for lack of anything better and wipe down then oil.
