What are you Big Boy Brass owners using to keep the brass clean and shiney?

Otherwise, don't use products that contain ammonia. You'll get a shinny result, but it will more quickly go patina dull.

I like the dull patina myself.
Gives it an old west look, plus better for hunting.

I let it go to a nice patina since the day I bought it. I just like it like that.
