Default Question about a Model 327-TRRB

Took my Model 327-TRRB out a couple days ago, and was totally impressed by the way it shot. After I got home though, I was hesitant about cleaning it. How durable is the finish used on this model? I know the old version of Hoppe's #9 can be hard on some of the newer finishes. I do have some of the newer Hoppe's as well as other more friendly cleaners if need be, but was just wondering what other's are using.

M-Pro7 and EEzox have worked for me, as does Ballistol.
Gave up on grandpa's Hoppes many years ago.

No negative effects on the finish of the TRRB?

No Ammonia based cleaners . . . Everything else should be fine

If you install the top rail to the gun and remove it, it will leave a mark. Make your choice as to leave the top rail and choice of optic on, or completely off. Also do not tighten those bolts too much. I had stripped one before.

The trigger stop will mar the frame inside the trigger guard and the cylinder will rub the finish off too. Sometimes inside the window, and outside the window on the lug. Those are unavoidable. As are the marks on the recoil shield on the inside as well.

The finish is very durable and it takes alot of beating to try and scratch it. Its tough.

I use Mpro7 and CLP only and avoid gun cleaners with a strong odor as I clean my guns indoors sometimes.
Mpro7 has no smell. But, spray it and start brushing, because it does evaporate quickly. You don't have to let it sit.

Hope this helps.

Curious, as it didn't pop out at me on an earlier look, I again removed my grip to see if my TRR8 had that slot down on the bottom backside of the round butt. Sure enough, mines got it so I guess they all have that. Why would S&W put that there? Kinda defeats the nice sleek look that would be there with a round butt grip with exposed backstrap. What is the purpose of the slot? I know its a vanity thing lol.

Hi Mod! I use Hoppe's Elite on my scandium/titanium 340s after reading it will not affect the finish of frame/cylinder in any manner. No problems. Hope this helps.
