If you are going to do that, might I suggest that you first dunk it in:

I turn it on and walk away for 10 to 20 minutes depending on how much shooting I have done.

I pull the parts and rinse them under normal, hot, tap water from the sink.

I fill a seperate tank with approved lubricant.

I put all the parts back in and turn it on again. I walk away for about 20 minutes.

I come back, pull the parts, wipe them down with an old t-shirt or such, reassemble perfectly lubed & treated weapon, put back in holster, safe or whatever.

No issues as long as you get the water off and treat the weapon steel accordingly with a good quality gun oil.

JD,

How much does one of those Ultrasonic Cleaners run?

What about just stripping my gun, throwing it in a pot of boiling water then go through normal cleaning standards

Sounds and looks interesting, looks doable and looks like the average cost of a nice handgun.

I wish you had asked this a few weeks ago brother. We got a coupon from SHOT for something like 20% off, which brought the price down well below MSRP.

It was a gift, but if I remember correctly, it was around $500-$550 bucks. Something like that. It wasn't "cheap" but the service it provides is a HUGE plus.

One thing I can tell you, it does a great job keeping rust and other problems from acquiring on my weapons and parts. I put my AR mags in there, I put my bolt and carrier in there, I put my magazines for all my pistols in there, I put my bolts in there from my long rifles. They all get the special Ultra Sonic lubricant treatment and I have NEVER had any issue with fit, form or function post treatment.

I even have a cop buddy who comes over for UFC events and he always brings his carry Glock and I treat the whole damn gun for him. Yeah, I know, but he is a friend and I want the best for him since he is FORCED to carry The Ghey.

I would recommend one to anyone that can afford it. It does a great job and it's so simple a caveman could use.... Hey, wait a minute.

boiling water or very hot water is what was used back when corrosive primers was all there was. people strip the wooden parts off their handguns and soak them in boiling water to remove the corrosive salts, pour boiling water in to barrels and actions to remove the salts. after that the heat of the metal would dry the weapon and lubrication was then applied.

doing that to a modern firearm that has never seen corrosive primers and full of plastic would not be a good idea.

I usually serve mine with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
