As a corollary to my question about the best blueing protector, what's the best (safest) solvent/cleaner to use on a blued Baer pistol? All of my other pistols are either stainless or have some sort of coating (parkerizing, Armor-Tuff, Baer Coat), so I don't have any experience in maintaining a blued finish. Normally I use Tetra Copper Solvent (I shoot FMJ ammo) to clean the residue not only from the barrel, but from the slide rails, chamber, breech face, etc. followed by a slight application of Wilson's Ultima Lube on the appropriate wear points. What do you use to clean your blued Baers? Do you think Tetra may be too rough on the blueing? Do you know what Baer recommends or what has worked for other blued Baer owners in the past? I do know the blueing will wear and I look forward to the pistol gaining some character -- I just want to make sure I don't accelerate the process incorrectly.
