Safariland Gunk Out safe for polymer pistols?
« on: October 11, 2017, 04:53:50 PM »
Is it safe to use Safariland “Gunk Out” to blast away
Carbon and oil on the slide of my P10c?   I know it has a few polymer parts in the slide.  Will it damage those parts?   I don’t spray it on the frame at all.

If it doesn't specifically say polymer or plastic safe I would not use it on any non metal parts. The cost of a can of cleaner isn't worth the cost of a damaged firearm.
I use CRC plastic safe electronic cleaner. Does a good job and I can get it at Walmart for just under 5 bucks a can.

Good idea.  Upon closer inspection, I see it says it isn’t safe to use on some plastics.  Why chance it.  I’ll find a safer product like the one you suggest!   Thank you.

I use Ballistol on everything!  Safe on all your polymer, wood, and metal parts, plus it's a pretty good CLP.  I give all my pistols a good soak in it when I get them, and it makes cleaning them super easy when they do get dirty.
