My First Gun is a Sig

Hello All,

Just wanted to let you all know that I am absolutely thrilled with my 2022. I've been lurking for a while now gathering info to assist with my purchase, and this site has been great!

Been to the range twice and the 2022 has been a pleasure to shoot. Now it's time to clean it...can anyone recommend a basic cleaning kit?

Thanks All

You will find that most any kit will work, but having said that.
I use and recommend a solid pistol cleaning rod, with a set of jags and bronze brushes. These rods usually have a bore guide on them too, to keep from scratching the bore.

I also recommend FrogLube for a CLP (Cleaner, lube, protectant)

These are just my preferences, but use high quality items and you will prolong the life of your barrel, as well as the rest of your pistol.

welcome to the forum.

Like Piperman said, there are many options. I don't even remember what all my rods and brushes are anymore. Just whatever was available when I need it.

I have a jar of Hoppes #9, a juice glass full of Q-tips, a bag of generic swatches, rod and brushes for .40. 9mm and .45, and a separate brush and rod set for .22 and 7.62.
I used up a bottle of rem oil, so i filled it with hoppes. i use hoppes to clean, after i get clean swatches, i run one through the barrel soaked in rem oil. all the other moving parts i apply a thin coat of white lithium grease taht i got from autozone for about 4 bucks. i think the rods and brushes came from the basic kits you buy from wallyworld

Hi NY Jim, and welcome from Missouri - also a fellow SP2022 owner. As others said, use quality materials. You can pick up a basic cleaning kit at Academy Sports, Walmart, or on Amazon. I use brass brush, and jag for cotton swatches - all designed for 9mm. I like aluminum or other soft metal rods - steel shanks on brushes and jags could scratch the barrel. I also use old toothbrushes for cleaning the frame and slide, with Q-tips for tight spots. A lot of folks use Hoppes Cleaner and Oil. I use Remington Dry lube for inside magazines.

'Grats on the SP2022. It's an excellent pistol and doesn't get as much attention as it deserves!

Yes. The 2022 is a fine machine. Never had one malfunction after 500-600 rounds. I've actually lost count. Should've documented it like I do on my others.

Greetings from Arizona and a fellow 2022 owner. I use CLP, but like what most here say, whatever you buy will do - everybody has their preference. I'd recommend a bore snake, too - it'll cut your cleaning time in half. And while you're cleaning - don't forget to take apart and clean the mags.

I highly recommend Break-Free CLP. Have not yet used it on a SIG, but works well on other pistols. Cheers.
