A lot of folks don’t bother. Any copper removing bore solvent (such as Shooter’s Choice) should do it. CLP might do it depending on how much you have. A couple of weeks ago, another member suggested using a cold blue.

As a preventative measure put a couple of pieces of electrical tape on the brass deflector. This will keep it from getting brassy, and will soften the blow and help keep the brass from being dented (good if you're a reloader). Another thing you could use is a small square of black velcro (the loop side).

Yes, for some odd reason it works: put some cold blue on a patch and rub the marks...they generally come off pretty quickly....I have NO idea why.

Thats exactly what I do. A little 44-40 on a cloth patch, cleans it right up.

Most CLP's will do the trick. All solvents I have used will. CLP products tend to be less evil on the finish but since it's not on there long it wont hurt.

Why bother? It's a WEAPON, not a wall queen.

2-3 drops of Breakfree. Scrub lightly with a bronze bristle brush.(This makes it look worse,but keep going...) Then 2-3 more drops of break free,and then scrub wih the G.I. nylon bristle brush. Then wipe off. Hope this helps. S-28

Just shoot the brass marks off with some steel cased ammo.... Or grind the deflector off if your right handed. J.K. :-)

What the heck is clp , and where do you get it?

Someone else asked this a while back and I suggested cold blue. Hey, it works..... CLP = Breakfree for most of the world.

Putting a pad over the deflector to prevent the brass mark is gay, IMHO. I keep a good coat of oil on the outside of all my guns and the brass marks come right off with solvent or CLP. Don't really make an effort, they just come off.

Whacha mean ?!?!? I use CLP like Armor-All. I finish my cleaning by wiping-down the exterior with CLP. Looks peeertty.
