    The gun is a black matte finish. I am wondering what cleaning chemicals will not harm the finish? Thanks for your replies.

    Do you know what finish was used on it?

    Most gun solvents will not harm a gun's finish. Finishes on guns are intended to hold up to solvents, and solvents are formulated to not be too hard on finishes...

    Anyway, CLP, Hoppes #9, Rem Oil, Gun Scrubber, etc, should all be fine.

    I've even had good experience with chlorine-free carb cleaner... Just remember to oil it afterword.

    If you're concerned about how a solvent is going to affect your finish, test it on a small inconspicuous area.
