View Full Version : Dim CT Laser On CM9's...A Tip

Well, a "Q Tip, that is.:)

Since the lens is so close to the muzzle, it quickly gets dirty from powder residue.

Thought I needed batteries, but only needed a good cleaning with a Q Tip.

Now I carry them in my range bag and include them in my after-shooting cleaning routine.

And a fine Q tip it is. The same works for weapon mounted flashlights. I sometimes use a lens pen here at work. Most of the officers have lights on their Glocks and they get nasty and icky pretty quick too.

I'm not sure what the lense is made of on the CT, I've not needed cleaner on mine but I use M Pro 7 or Hoppe's Elite (same exact thing) on the flashlight lenses and it works real well.

I just used rubbing alcohol. (CT recommends it.)

Brought it right back to bright.

cvs & walgreens carry qtips that are pointed on one end like the laser people sell. they are usaualy in the womens eye cosmetic section. they do great job on laser optics and are what i use to clean rails and slots on kahrs
