Oh man I am a first time owner of the FNH-FNX-45 and I attempted the initial cleaning with REM Action Cleaner and patched until they came up clean. Then I oiled with REM oil. All seems ok, but the black painted portions of the weapon now look oxidized almost turning greyish/white. I just applied more oil to the outer surface and rubbed it in and now it looks good again. Having no experience with weapons I am totally unaware if this is normal. I know it says in the booklet not to use a Teflon based cleaner/oil, but to be honest this was the only products I could find without ordering something online. I also purchased a cleaning kit that came with many patches and some bore brushes. The brushes are either brass or bronze, but I still did not use them out of fear of damaging the bore and causing scratches. I hope the REM products did not contain Teflon and are acceptable to use with my weapon until I learn more about this process.
So, is REM cleaning products ok to use?
