I have a GtL21 under rail tactical light + laser sight on my G19.. As many of you know the gtl21 sticks out farther then the gun barrell, about an inch. It can get quite dirty from all the gun powder after, or while shooting. The gun powder sometimes gets caked on there pretty good. What do you guys use to clean the lens? Any special product to use?

Abrasive and detergent free soap and water?

A rag or other soft cloth?

Im not sure if the Gtl21 is different than the Streamlights or Surefires I've owned... but I cant imagine that they'd be that different... Its a flashlight lens, not a high dollar optical sight coated with "special" light transmission enhancing wonder chemicals

Just use common sense.

I was told to use a pencile eraser on my Surefire lights as I've had the same problem with them getting dirty. It worked quite well.

I have been shooting alot with my tlr and have found it kinda annoying to clean. I found this thread via google and it seems the solution is to put something on the lens.

I did find:

But I didn't find any reviews. Does anyone know of any other oils/cleaners made for lights specifically?

Sorry about the late post, but I thought it was better then starting a new one.

I use RemOil on my TRL-1. Works just fine...

Pre-Moistened Lens Cleaning wipes, or plain old rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip or paper napkin works for me.

I would try denatured alcohol and lens (no-scratch) tissue.
