    I'm using Militec 1 with mine.
    I also cheated with the breakin
    Lubed it up and ran 300 FMJs followed by 200 Federal HST JHPs straight up.
    Had one early fail to return to battery (FMJ) and that's it

    Cool thing about my V-Bob is I could field strip it with my bare hands right out of the box!

    Enjoy your DW

    I am the OP. My manual also listed and approves the use of Mil-Tec Tw25b grease, which I have been using on the rails. The manual also approves and recommends the use of Kroil as a bore cleaner solvent. I've never used that, so I ordered some and will give it a try. I will be doing phase II of the break-in this Sunday, and based on how well the first session went, I will probably cheat and go 100 rounds instead of 50 before cleaning again, maybe even try a mag or 2 of carry ammo (230 gr. Gold Dot JHP and 185 gr. Critical Defense). I will report after the range session.

    I use TW25B a lot on all my guns. Kroil is a very light penetrating machine oil. Never heard of using it for a bore solvent but I'm sure it would work.
    It's the ticket for stuck bolts and such for sure.

    Hardly ever use it but always have a can handy, when you need it, you need it.

    I'm DW fan myself. Stopped looking at 1911s after buying my V Bob. Congrats on the new Valkyrie.

    The ball cuts set that badboy off. I'm currently scrounging up the bucks to get an Ed Brown custom to go along with my Dan Wesson guardian. LOVE that gun.

    OK, please educate me….I'm familiar with Kroil loosening stuck bolts but have never heard of using it for a bore cleaner.

    OP here. I'd never even heard of Kroil until I bought my DW Valkyrie. The owner's manual says under the section for Cleaning Supplies: "High-quality cleaning solvent (barrel only) Solvents can discolor your Duty Finish. Kroil is also recommended and Duty Finish safe. | Oil-based cleaner (polymer safe) for the rest of the gun | High-quality gun oil such as FP-10, Miltec-1, Mil-Comm TW25B grease or Dan Wesson Rail Lube."

    I have pretty much standardized on Lucas gun care products (oil and grease) for all my guns. I find that the Lucas grease works extremely well on rails. It coats well and stays on the rails, so I will probably end up using that on the DW as well. I don't know what, if any special qualities Kroil might possess that would cause DW to recommend it, but I went ahead and bought a can and will give it a try. In the end I suspect most high-quality products will work equally well.

    Phase II of the break-in tomorrow morning at the indoor range. It's too damn hot to do anything outside...

    I'm now officially a DW fanboy. Already planning my next purchase; most likely a V-Bob Commander in .45 caliber.

    Hoppes #9 and Rem Oil. If grease needed for some particular reason I have some Wilson's around somewhere.
