    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?

    Carb/brake cleaner, then CLP in necessary areas.

    Occassionally warm soapy baths.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
