    Then just clean it up with some solvent, no need to put oil in there.

    No need to oil the barrel, it's chrome lined and a bore snake is sufficient.. I only put oil on the muzzle threads and a little on the FCG and rails.

    I shoot corrosive. I bore snake the barrel first with solvent then with oil, then I push a rag through the gas tube with solvent, then spray some oil into it and reassemble. I need to get some of those little gas block brushes though, I've never cleaned mine. :o

    Do you use hot water as a "pretreatment"? If you do, do you oil the outside of AK where it was rinsed with water? I know water can't dissolve oil but it the metal on my AK feels so bare after I rinse it thru water, so I oil the whole damn thing.

    Tell me I'm in paranoid and I can cut out some of these measures. :o

    No I personally don't use water mainly out of laziness. The water is there to dissolve the salts from the corrosive ammo, but IMO Hoppe's 9 solvent works just as fine. :dunno:
