Default Pros & Cons on Ultrasonic Gun Cleaning

Hey everyone. I'm interested in some opinions about using an ultrasonic gun cleaning machine. I have yet to use one, but wanted to know if there were any pros &cons to using them. If I do use it does this mean no more lubrication of a handgun? I'm new with this new system. Any advice helps. Thanks.

its generally safe for gun parts depending on the solution used. just dont put plastic parts, polymer parts or sights that arent just plain metal sights with no inserts.

still have to swab the bore and lube as normal. no getting around that.

I used to work in a lab enviroment. I can tell you its the best way I've found for cleaning muzzleloader parts. And talk about small hard to clean parts that get gunked with corossive junk. Id use your head anything that can vibrate loose might.

Good for cleaning and not proper for lubing.
