If it's WD-40 residue - regular stinky paint thinner works wonders. A squirt of kroil should help a lot too.

A few years ago, a customer brought in a S&W revolver that had been sprayed with WD-40 on a regular basis for years. I finally got the thing apart with Kroil but was left with the gummy residue on everything. A half hour soak in a solution of hot, 140+, water and tri sodium phosphate (TSP in Lowes paint dept) cleaned it like new with no blue damage. TSP is the main ingredient in the de-greasing solutions used before hot blue. It will leave the metal completely oil free so a quick oiling after degreasing is needed to prevent flash rust.

No, I've never used WD-40 on any of my firearms. It's mainly Eezox for corrosion and FP-10 for lubrication on the rails and such.

Thanks for the TSP tip, that sounds like a plan.

Mine did the same thing. Look at the safety, the screw came lose and the lever being lose moved just enough to stop the slide from moving
