I like the OTIS 10 pack bore brushes and the old aluminum cleaning rods. I really like MPro 7 cleaner and the OTIS CLP and Breakfree CLP products.

I use Otis brushes as well.ThumpUp

10 passes with a bronze brush, Eau De #9 allow to soak for about 10 minutes, dry patch then wet/dry patches with a tight fit until dry comes out clean. Follow up with wet oil patch and then dry patch. The FCU gets sprayed down gun scrubber then synthetic oil. Grease at the hammer pivot point and the rails
Sig P250 in the following flavours:
9mm compact and long slide, (full size slide on a compact grip frame, have to do it to stay legal in the PRNJ)
40/357 compact
45 compact

I use a bore snake. It has a little metal in it, but nothing like a brush. Seems to work great. I was also worried about the metal, but everything seems to be fine.

This. I have a bore snake with copper bristles. Works great, one pass through and it is clean as a whistle. apply a bit of oil to a patch and run it through and it's good to go. I always hated dealing with patch after patch after patch.

Manual says no steel brush = steel. Using nylon or bronze is ok.

I use a Bore Snake like others do. Simple & quick.

Field strip it
Put Breakfree CLP down barrel & let sit
Use old toothbrush to brush out handle, FCU, rod, spring, mag well, slide
Use a clean cloth towel w/ oil to wipe down everything handle, FCU, rod, spring, mag well, slide and outside of barrel
Use syringe w/ grease & cue tip to put a little grease on parts that slide. Thin coat on rails, barrel lug, underside of slide. If it slides & shows wear grease it.
Use Bore Snake with oil soaked on lace part behind brushes. Run it through from chamber end to muzzle 2-3 times.
Wipe outside of barrel w/ oiled cloth & then thin grease outside w/ qtip.
Reassemble & good to go.

Takes 10 min or so.

Bronze here, patches to get any particles broken free by the brush.
