    If you don't need to scrub the barrel, just shoot it down with Remiol, blasting in any openings. Then shake it off and wipe it down. Otherwise you need to remove the slide.

    Hoppes Boresnake. Use it after most range trips, it's really all you need until the gun just stops working.

    Beyond that, I've used a gun cleaning brush (like a toothbrush) to get into some crevices, wiped things down with some scrubber and rags and Q-tips, and lightly oiled it up.

    I use a small S/S dish pan with kerosene in it about 2/3 inches deep.

    I remove the grips from whatever pistol I'm going to clean and place in kero. bath. After 10 or 15 minutes of soaking they are blown out with compressed air, 90 psi. Then back to the kero. bath for a 2nd soak and a 2nd blow out after 10/15 minutes.

    After this a relube is in order of course. This beats tearing everything down. With the Hi Point watch for the loose parts.
