Anyone try the different bolt/carrier cleaners for ARs? Which one works best?
Ultrasonic with Brownells Ultrasonic Gun Cleaning solution. Set it and forget it.
Aerosol carb cleaner.
Oops, I meant to say which one of those new tools by KZ and others, that scrap the bolt and get shoved down into the carrier.
Baby wipes or sand.
You don't need a scraper, it doesn't need to be white glove clean.
For the bolt I clean the carbon off the tail w/ a wire wheel on my bench grinder.
Stripper clip, a 9mm patch and some CLP. Works great and is free as well. How can you go wrong?
I let it soak in mineral spirits while I clean the rest of the rifle, then go at it a bit with a toothbrush and hit it with some air.
On AR15.com I found a concoction that is a mixture of mineral spirits and BreakFree CLP.
That's where I got the idea. I just skip the CLP, in the mix anyways.
Gun scrubber synthetic safe aerosol. Then use small wire brush. Works for me.
Break Free Powder Blast and a green scratch pad for me...
I break down the BCG then soak in Ford fuel system cleaner.
20 mins and it's ready for a toothbrush. Spotless clean everytime.
Ballistol. Non toxic and gets the job done.
Thats a new one. How much does that cost?
$3-4 about four years ago?
Parts washer at work. Let it soak for a couple of hours, then on lunch dredge it up and scrub it a little. Ever since the CO wasn't inspecting my weapon, I quit worrying about it being spotless.
Cheap can of brake cleaner from the auto parts store. Give them a good spray then relube...your done!
That doesn't work for me,.....I get all the carbon off the way I do it.
