hello....i unintentionally hijacked another thread into an AR cleaning debate, so i thought i'd start my own.
last time i started an AR care thread, i am afraid i left more confused than when i started. i got suggestions about cleaning and lube products that ranged from dish soap to hoppe's to vegetable oil
i use, and really like WIPEOUT foaming cleaner for barrel cleaning.
i am especially interested suggestions for products to soak
the parts to make cleaning the bolt, etc much easier.
i had a friend who suggested breakfree....but i don't understand the whole "it cleans & lubricates" at the same time thing.
any suggestions for a good cleaning and lube product appreciated...i am probably more interested in "off the shelf" vs "home brews"
also, please mention any products that are "wrong" or might damage function or finish.
thanks for any input. this is a very helpful AR board, and i appreciate all your help.
