specifically the ar15 but post what you use for your other guns as well
The blood of my fallen enemies.
Sort of on topic: My AR keeps jamming and I can't figure out why, I keep cleaning it but there's all kinds of red gunk that jams up the action, any ideas?
maybe its the ammo? special red powder ammo
Carb/brake cleaner, then CLP in necessary areas.
Occassionally warm soapy baths.
break freeze CLP or some shit.
I was told to never use brake cleaner on my guns.
what you need, my friend, is this:
I'm not picky, hoppes or clp seem to do fine on powder, sometimes I put a brush down the bore but its usually patches.
Just avoid the chlorinated stuff and only use it on metals.
what brand do you use? I don't even know the brand, but its the brake cleaner in a red can and black top, I buy it by the case.
Bore snakes mostly. I also have one of those OTIS Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious cleaning kits I'll use when something needs deep cleaning. A little hopes and CLP doesnt hurt either.
Pyroil or something like that. Lime green top has non chlorinated in big words.
Dont know how it stacks up in the automotive industry, but I usually get it free and it works for me.
hoppes and a brush or patch
I refuse to use CLP, I use either a brush and 5/30 Mobile 1 with 75% ATF fluid or when I'm home I use Brake Cleaner and 5/30 Mobile 1 with 75% ATF, outlasts that shit CLP they issue by 50 % any day of the week.
It was a joke.
Brake cleaner, soapy water, boresnake, oil.
I just pee on the ak when it gets clogged up with mud.
Hoppes #9 for the bore, Weapon Shield CLP for everything else.
Very informative video
How to clean a gun
Liquefied baby souls
I can only get these by setting my AK free at night and hoping it finds an innocent baby to kill. It has been slow lately.
meh, I just use remoil for most of my cleaning. Brake cleaner if it gets really bad. I've stuck with remoil for lube because it's cheap, very very easy to get, and has worked great.
Solvents are primarily synthetic safe Gun Scrubber (which is basically non-chorinated brake cleaner from what I understand) and Shooters Choice Bore Solvent
Lubes are Weapon Shield or Slide Glide on the bearing surfaces, and RemOil for cosmetic stuff.
Why does my AR keep making a "sproing" noise and why are there marks on my brass deflector?
