In firearms rust tests, Eezox was the best, with Hoppe's #9 powder solvent being second best and

better than ALL of the commercial labled gun oils, even better than Hoppe's own gun Oil.

Been saying this about new guns for years. Nice to be seeing others aware of it.
Chinese bbl.'s seem about the worst for the black-tar type cosmo. Lighter fluid will break it down. Graffiti remover in the form of "goof off" is much faster than lighter fluid. Problem with graffiti remover is that all traces of it have to be removed.

Hoppe's 9 ain't so hot on Chinese cosmo. I'll stick to the lighter fluid.

I see accuracy complaints levelled at new guns here on a fairly regular basis and wonder just how clean people are getting their bores before that first down range accuracy test...

I don't recall cleaning the bore of my PP700S-A. I did look through it and it appeared clean.
I suspect Wes might have cleaned it. It shot amazingly well right off the bat, making a 5 shot group
(5-shot hole) with Crossman RNHP's (.22) at 10 meters,(rested) that a .177 Pellet would not fall through. I was
using registered commercial 10 meter air pistol match targets.
That group is on the top right target,which has 3 different groups on it, all 5 shots. The hole at 2 o'clock, is the
5-shot group I noted above.

The bottom targets were shot with the .22 Gauntlet on CO2, with the Crossman RNHP's. Those pellets did not shoot
well on compressed air.

So - yes - make sure the bls. are clean before you shoot.
