    I know that it isn't advisable to use some cleaning agents in a Camp 9/45 because of the plastic parts possibly melting, so my question is, which cleaner do I use? I usually use Gun Scrubber, which is a big no-no in these guns, but Gun Scrubber DOES make a plastic-safe version for Glocks and such, would this be a good one to use?

    conveniently all the plastic bits come off the rifle in one unit. Here's how I cleaned mine

    after disassembly I would hose out the action and bolt with brake parts cleaner and re oil.

    the plastic and trigger group would get cleaned the old fashioned way with q-tips rage and Nitro solvent

    reassemble shoot and rejoyce

    OH and BTW always remove and inspect the recoil buffer

    soak or brush on it in kerosene - works great. then I use a small bristle paint brush and old toothbrush to scrub then rinse w/more kero. and dry of course and re-lube.
    I have both the 9mm Para nd .45acp Camps - good carbines.
