It is a shotgun, no idea what brand/model.
I will freely admit I am a lazy bastard when it comes to clean guns. But this is a bit much. I am a fan of Shooter’s Choice Polymer Safe Quick Scrub because it will remove a lot of built up crap by just spraying it on the proper place and I still go back with the green toothbrush, dental tools and patches to clean those crooks and nannies that are stubborn.
Also, we have advanced enormously with lubricants and a I also prefer the newer generations of synthetics. I will use nothing but Slipstream Weapon Lubricant that will keep the buildup of crud to almost non-existent levels while running the gun smoothly.
And the second they make very good ultrasonic cleaners for under $50 and the solvent at $10 the gallon, I will take that road too.
I did say I was lazy, right?

Looks like a Remington 1100 to me.
One of my older American Rifleman issues had a joke about two gentlemen discussing a fellow shooter’s obsession with only using brand-specific lubricants on his firearms: Rem-Oil on his Remingtons, BSA Kleenwell on his BSA, etc. The punchline was “He might be on to something. I nearly ruined my Colt by using Wesson Oil.”
Yep, Remington 1100. I’ve been using Frog Lube for almost 3 years and I love it. If it’s used right, your semi auto’s run like the slides are on ball bearings. I use it on my AR’s and since I started I have never had a failure except for some bad ammo.
That ones not all that bad. I have cleaned some that the customers admitted to never having cleaned them and don’t understand why they won’t work. They don’t have to be squeaky clean, but you should scrape the crud out of them every 5 or 6 years.
I dislike RemOil; doesn’t seem to hang around well, and not worth a damn, from what I’ve seen, at preventing corrosion.
Mig, you should come over the /r/firearms we’re better than r/guns
Let’s say I am always skulking on both places…. 🙂
Coolio, I used to go to guns, until I found firearms, but the sheer glocksturbation and Hi-point hatred rubbed me the wrong way
Any guesses about the ‘furry’ stuff? Dandelion fluff, rabbit fur, spider legs?
