Hi,

How do you guys clean the part of the inside of the frame where the recoil spring goes (when assembled)? I can't seem to get a rag, toothbrush, or anything in there to clean it well. It's the u-shaped part and has some hard-to-reach areas.

Hope this makes sense.

Skunkabilly,

The answer is, you don't. It isn't necessary - unless you drop the pistol in a mud puddle or such like. And in such a case, you'll need to at least fieldstrip the gun to clean it anyway. Just clean that area every time you fieldstrip for thorough cleaning and lubing.

Ah - may have misunderstood here. If you mean "where the recoil spring sits when assembled" (but disassembled for cleaning).... I use a nylon brush, some Tetra Gun spray cleaner/lube, and some Q-tips, and a clean cotton lint-free rag (like old T-shirts).

Spray, brush, spray, brush. Wipe with rag, swab hard to reach places with Q-tips and or bits of rag directed with pointed tweezers.
