I used Ballistol on my DT-finished Dan Wesson CCO with no problems.

I think the Owners Manual listed 2 or 3 specific products and Ballistol was NOT one of them; however, I’d heard from a couple of trusted sources that it was good-to-go.

I don’t currently own a DT’d firearm but I still use Ballistol haha.

Mil-comm TW25B and MC2500 are both fine... Of course, it doesn't matter if a monkey at your FLGS touches it with something stupid on their hands and leaves a fingerprint sized smudge in the Duty Treatment.

Do you use the FP-10 for cleaning as well, such as the inside of the slide for removing carbon and the like? Needless to say, no much cleaning to be done to the outside of the gun.

DON'T BE LIKE RN47 AND USE BREAK-FREE ON YOUR DUTY TREATED FIREARMS.

Yes, that is a permanent stain and no amount of soaking, brushing or witch doctor voodoo I have tried will get it off. I will have to send it back to the mothership to fix.

I use the silicone gun rags or Weapon Shield/Lucas Extreme oil for minor cleaning. I have used Gun Scrubber polymer safe on the inside and sparingly on outside, it dries out kind of funky but after I hit the outside with the gun rag/oil and wipe inside with oil on a patch and its new again and never had any permanent marks with it. I never put it on and scrub with it just the pressure from the can to blow the gunk off.

Yes, it's a great cleaner. Most carbon just wipes off. The occasional stubborn deposit is easily brushed off with soft bristle brush.

I also have used Ballistol on my Dan Wesson Guardian for almost two years with absolutely no problems whatsoever. Also use it to clean the barrel , slide, and to lube it . No cosmetic issues on the the Duty Treatment finish and the gun runs great. One product does all

The DW Manual says Kroil and FP-10.
That's what I use... period.
Why take a chance messing up a $1500-2000 gun
because you want to use a $5.00 can of shlt you've used forever?
