It takes a WATER based product to do that. During WW 2 the US issued RBC- rifle bore cleaner- that WOULD do the job. Stunk like crazy.

Pay attention now, and keep up with the rest of us.
You mean all those inspections I passed after taking the M16 into the shower were gimme's? My DI lied to me? No it can't be true!

Trez- the SKS was made with a chromed bore to resist damage from corrosive ammo (except for some of the Yugos.

The 91-30 was invented before chrome plating was.

And yes, your DI lied about taking the M16 into the shower- they were never supposed to have white glove inspections. (And did you know, if there is ANY dirt in a 16, you can pull the operating handle, and it will be in that little half moon cutout the handle slips into? )

I think the white glove inspections were a cheap way to force us to disassemble the M-16 beyond a normal field strip. It was peacetime, we never fired the rifles enough to have any malfunctions. The only way to train us well enough to be able to repair the rifles in the field was to play games. We kept the rifles so clean we had to lubricate the rifles to actually fire them.

That's good leadership. Your rifle becomes a part of you. Cleaning it, and even repairing it is something you should be able to do blind folded.

My old D.I.s always said:

"Take care of your weapon, and your weapon will take care of you."


BTW, C3 is spot on about the chrome lining in the bore and chamber. It's a shame they didn't figure out chrome until almost the end of the corrossive primer era.
