Cleaning a Sig with Nitron finish

I hope this is in the right place.

I recently purchased a Sig Sauer SP2022 in .40 and love it so far. I had a Sigma 40VE before and there is just no comparison.

My question is, will a solvent like Hoppes or Gunscrubber harm the Nitron finish. I know that Gunscrubber will harm some plastic surfaces so I'm careful not to get much on the polymer frame. I field stripped it to give it a good cleaning before the 1st range trip and noticed that it made spots on the Nitron finish when I sprayed inside the slide. I immediately wiped it down with oil and gave it a light spray of Barricade and you can't see anything now. So, should I use it on the inside of the slide or not? If not, what solvent is good for this application? I like the sprays because they reach so many places a patch or cloth can't.

Thanks,

The Nitron is safe with solvents. Once the cleaners have removed all of the oils from the finish it will be grayish dull color. I just use CLP to get the color back.

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping I wouldn't have to go at it with a rag or patch. I'm spoiled with that Gunscrubber. :)
