For me, the best solvent for the money is no odor mineral spirits. $14.00 at Home Depot buys a gallon, and a gallon goes a long way.

Better oil it after! I've practically seen rust start forming after using that stuff

I use shooter's choice to clean and lubricate my firearms. I use the German product Brunox to lubricate my AR. It works very well in piston ARs, even when very hot. It also makes a great steak sauce.

I've been using Break Free powder blast, followed by Break Free CLP for years. I just recently started using Gunbutter for high stress/friction areas, and that stuff works great. Comes in a nice little pen oiler for precision application, and it stays put where you apply it. I saw this product called Fire Clean, and when I get around to it I will start using that. Watched a few videos on it, and one treatment to an AR platform dramatically reduced malfunctions, and significantly reduced cleaning time; gunky buildup wipes right off with nothing more than a rag or paper towel.

Just got finished running through a 4 day tactical Rifle Course in the middle of the desert.
Decided to try out Frog Lube Before, During, and After.

Only ended up doing the before and after.
I am truly amazed.. I properly applied it after letting my AR sit in the desert sun for an hour.

This stuff made the BCG look wet, did not attract dust or Sand, and got better the more you used it.

At the end of 4 days, I was able to take a dry rag and just wipe off the carbon from the bolt and carrier, a couple dry patches, followed by 1 wet one down the barrel.

I know this stuff isn't cheap, but it Rocks...
Plus it smells good, is safe (even edible), wont harm the environment, and gets better as your gun heats up.

I don't usually sing the praises of products, but for a semi-auto rifle, this is the only stuff you will EVER need.

A gallon of kerosene would be cheaper and as effective if not moreso. In fact I remember reading years ago, Kero is the base ingredient of hoppes #9. Not only will it clean, it has some lube properties to help prevent surface rust.

Frog Lube is the best thing I have used to date. Admittedly an old Hoppes solvent & lube guy. Since then, lots of clp's including Balistol, but Frog Lube wins the day. Balistol works great on all my Mountain Bike suspension pivot points and will lube the chain in a pinch.

I took the plunge and spent the money for Frog Lube. If I wasn't tired and was paying attention to the part where you need to use heat it probably would have worked better for me. But overall it works really well.

Yea. I'm slowly converting all my guns. That first application is key. After that, it's like butta.
