I spent some time yesterday cleaning my AR and I had a couple thoughts. For the small parts and the bolt/carrier what do you all use? Do the ultrasonic cleaners really make a difference in cleaning? Also, what is the best way to clean out the gas tube? I've heard some mention using a pipe cleaner, but how so? Do you take the gas tube out of the upper completely or do you just run it in from the receiver end?
I ask because the batch of ammo I used recently was noticeably dirtier than the previous ammo I had been using. I want to make sure I am cleaning the AR as best as I can to keep it functioning well.
