    gun cleaning discussion thread

    I just wanted to solicit some input and feedback from members about favorite cleaning products and methods. I'm an old dude, so I've been using the old standard Hoppes #9 since forever ago. I've been noticing that it doesn't really work all that well on propellant residue from the stuff I'm...

    Cleaning AR's not my favorite thing

    My experience with AR's goes back a while, to 1970 when they had us turn in the M14 Rifle for the M16. Since even before my army service I was a gun guy, I was interested in keeping my rifle clean and functional. In Vietnam, I was a support troop in the rear. But I pulled guard duty on the...

    Contigo (or any brand) Stainless Travel/Coffee Cups <> Cleaning

    I've used the stainless travel cups for hot beverages for years. The Contigo brand has worked great, in that respect. Mine is used for coffee. Considering I like the Coffeemate French Vanilla, the sugars tend to build over time, and grow into an almost caulk appearance and texture. Once a week I...

    Wet Tumble Brass Cleaning Material Recommendation- Guntap!!

    I've been reloading for about 4 years now, and I feel like I've learned some great lessons including awesome products that I want to share. All you reloading vets will know this already, but sometimes I forget how many newer people are on this forum. Everyone will have a different view on...

    What tools do you use for cleaning primer pockets?

    I'm searching for a better method of cleaning primer pockets. I'm already uniforming most of the pockets* as part of virgin brass prep but for all my fired and prepped brass I use a pocket brush with less than ideal results. I know many don't worry about pockets and that's cool but for those...

    Cleaning milsurp bolt-action rifles after shooting corrosive ammo?

    ...So, it's generally agreed upon the bore and chamber are cleaned with warm water, some folks add windex, and others use soap, but what about the bolt? How many of you disassemble the bolt and scrub it down? Seems to me you can get by with just cleaning the bolt face, but I don't want to risk...

    Brass Cleaning (again!)

    Once upon a time I belonged to a car site. The dreaded thread there was brands of oil. A mere mention would be biblical....40 days and 40 nights of comments! Anyway, here's my brass cleaning hint and any comments would be helpful. I'm a real stickler for clean brass. My local range is insistent...

    In Search Of A Decent Freaking Q Tip (Swab)!

    I currently use Q Tip brand swabs and they used to be great. Then about a couple of years ago they really seemed to go downhill. The stick portion isn't as strong as they used to be and the cotton tip shreds and unravels just by looking at it. :rolleyes: I've also tried Target's house brand...

    Thoughts on cleaning a Flintlock without removing the barrel

    Greetings, Yesterday I picked up a Pedersoli flintlock in .32 caliber and the barrel seems "difficult" to remove for regular cleaning. It doesn't have wedges; it actually looks like the barrel was put in with finishing nails (I'll attach photos from the manufacture). With my old eyes...
