I did the search thing and read everything there was about cleaning my M85 UL and I kinda think I know what and where to clean without taking the gun apart, which I don`t think I would ever do but I`m hoping that some of you would be kind enough to walk through the steps one more time and also point out where one might want to drop a little gun oil, like maybe down the hammer or the trigger or else where. Thanks for your time.

This is a really good writeup with pics.

http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/edu46.htm

I follow that procedure pretty much to the T. However, on my stainless guns. I use some Flitz metal polish and a toothbrush around the forcing cone, and a lead away cloth on the front of the cylinder to remove the powder burn marks. Then I run WD on it an run a clean patch through each cylinder hole, and the barrel.

You can use flitz in both places, but as it cleans it shines. So unless you want a shiny gun in places, and factory finish elsewhere...

It's up to you. I have trouble getting the cloth near the upper part of the forcing cone, and have found the polish/toothbrush method easier.

In addition I spry Breakleaner threw the inside workings and after it dries out I spray my lube threw it. DO NOT get breakcleaner on plastick or wood.

Thank you both for the good advice. One more question, in the writeup that godadone posted, he put a drop of oil on the ejector rod and the cyclinder star. What about a drop or two down into the hammer and the trigger, could this be what Dave is referring to and if so then I guess the breakcleaner is needed after a while to keep it from getting all gummed up inside over time? Yes-no?
