    Default Polymer Safe Gun Cleaners in California

    Well I went ro the store with a shopping list of some recommendations from these forums, only to find that none of the brake cleaner part numbers I collected are available in California!

    Any California Kahr owners care to divulge what they are using to clean their polymer pistols?

    I know I can just buy a $10-$15 can of Gun Scrubber, but I would much rather have 10 cans of $2 brake cleaner available! However all of the brake cleaners I saw today list Acetone as their main ingredient...

    The good Gun Scrubber isn't available in California anymore either. They replaced it with a "California approved" Gun Scrubber.

    Water. Oh nevermind. There is a shortage on that too.

    I'm not an expert but I would think thar CA would have non-clorinated brake cleaner. Wouldn't it be "friendler" than acetone? My brake cleaner I use comes in a green can.

    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    If you read the ingredients all CA non-chlorinated brake cleaner I can find is primarily acetone.

    I use FrogLube, but for initial degreasing and cleaning would recommend CRC QD Electronic Cleaner in spray can. It's available at local WalMart and it's great without such a toxic odor. You will likely find it in the sporting goods or automotive sections.

    Be sure to also spray it in the hole on underside of slide to clean out the extractor and striker channel without having to remove them.

    thats strange. acetone is on its way out in over the counter cleaners. anything that says acetone, I would stay away from. I suggest one go to NAPa and buying 3M High Pressure brake cleaner. in a black can Part# 08180. Its cheap in price, it POWERFUL AS HELL, and IT WILLNOT HARM ANY PART OF YOUR KAHR. I have used CRC and it is good also. Mosty auto stores sell either. U can if you feel squeesy about buying auto cleaners for your gun, just go ahead and by gunscrubber at about 3X the price and utter than mayse some sweet smelly sh!t in the can, it is the same stuff but it sucks in the gun owners... My choice for the past 5 years is 3M

    I am not leary about using them, in fact I want to use them. My problem is the California approved 3M, bothe colors of CRC, and even the Supertech brake cleaners all contain Acetone which is very harmful to polymers. In fact, almost every brake cleaner I can find has nearly identical ingredients to the respective companies carb cleaner!

    I checked every label at NAPA and Walmart, I am going to try Autozone tomorrow. I really don't want to pay $15 for a can of Gun Scrubber, which is also a watered down stupid California version!
