Simple green makes aluminum safe cleaners but it’s not the regular simple green.

So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

The Simple Green aircraft cleaner is safe for aluminum and not that expensive.

Plastic dish pan or bucket, hot soapy water with dish soap will easily clean gun parts. Soak for an hour, scrub clean, rinse with HOT water so it dries off quickly. Then spray some aerosol lubricant on it to coat the parts with oil.

When I buy used guns this is what I do to get all the grunge and old lube off it. While it’s apart I would look at replacing some of the springs in it. Hammer, action, recoil springs and the like can be had for under $20 and restore the guns action to like new.
