I have been thinking of getting an ultrasonic cleaner lately for those of you that have them and use them to clean your handguns what solutions do you use? I think something like mineral spirits would work good for removing everything on a all steel gun but it worries me on a polymer framed handgun. so my question is what works best for you and what firearms do you use it on?

SLiP 2000 725 gun cleaner (http://www.slip2000.com/). Water based, will not hurt polymer and cleans off carbon. You can buy it in 1 gallon containers.

Thanks for the advice but I want to try to stay away from water based solutions if I can without hurting anything.
It doesn't look like mineral spirits will hurt polymer either after some research. I think a modified version of ed's red is what I'm going to try first. I have the prefect test gun, my poor hi point gets all the abuse lol.
