Exclamation cleaned my AR15

WELL time passed and it was time to clean the AR. i think i might need to do this more often the carbon build up was bad.

i normally dont clean it till about 500+ rounds has been fired but this time i was slacking , it must have had 1000's out of it, and it was filthy

surprised it still ran.

guess that says alot for the gun if it ran flawless as dirty as it was it should never fail clean. i did keep it wet like most have said.

also surprise me the gas tube was not that dirty but the bolt and firing pin was.

fyi keep them wet and they will run.

guess ill clean a few more today (been cleaning and reloading for a week now) ,
im almost done with all that were involved in lasts weeks 22 hours worth of range shooting

about time to go shoot again

I hate cleaning firearms. It's like being a kid again and having to do chores while cartoons were on.

It's been my experience as well that ARs will run quite well when dirty. The modern AR platform is quite reliable contrary to popular opinion. I myself have tested it at times quite often by running them near dry. By the time I shoot them again after cleaning them the lube is nearly dry. I'm using CLP or sometimes Slip 2000 EWL.

i use Valvoline 0 (zero) wt synthetic oil as read on AR15.COM

DOES NOTHING ON STOPPING rust BUT FOR 5 BUCKS A QT THAT IS A LOT OF SAVINGS OVER THE 5 BUCKS FOR 10-12 OZ, works great as a slick lub,

i use it on all moving parts on all my stuff.



i also use rem oil spray & brake cleaner.
a lot cheaper then gun blast and works good just re lube the gun after use.

now this stuff (brake cleaner) will harm the old plastic grips on some guns so be careful
