Brasso works the best for me on the brass on my rifles. Another good one is Never Dull. Never Dull comes as this cotton cloth impregnated with the brass cleaner. You tear off a little bit and start scrubbing.
Brasso's good, but can leave residue in tiny cracks and corners.
NevRDull is good too. And it leaves no residue. It doesn't work quite as quickly as Brasso but I like it because you tear off a swab only as big as you need.
Both are long favorites in the military, for polishing brass.
Brasso and elbow grease if the brass is really dirty.....never thought of using Ballistol as was posted earlier.....will give it a try. Use Ballistol for my M/L's tho in the bbl and around the lock areas for clean up.
