I wouldn't waste $10 on a can of CLP.

I would never use atf fluid for anything but shifting gears. Its mildly toxic and has a very low flashpoint similar to jetfuel...

It acts like denatured alcohol in its ability to remove skin oils which can lead to very bad skin cracks. You don't want this. I had it happen to me it took two months of gluing my skin together so it could grow out enough after a hole in my glove allowed stripper to get in... don't recomend it.

Default I should have said different words I don't like cleaning but i don't mind it either

The guy never states what brand country of origin his AK is though. I was just relaying the info of an article about some guy somewhere with a X-Type AK47 never Taking apart his Firing Pin/Module/Housing to clean the hole where the firing pin lives and he says that Berdan Primers are corrosive and rusting his firing pin module from the inside out. The ammo he is talking about is Tula (non corrosive),Berdan Primed,Made in Russia ammo. I happened to buy the exact same ammo recently to shoot in my 6 Month old Maadi

My Maadi AK is Brand New had it 6 months before that i had a Romanian Ak 5 years ago. I am only concerned because i read the article about the guy who rusted his Firing Pin Module on his AK47 (X-Meaning unknown) X-Type AK.

Sorry for any confusion i was just getting answers because i shot the same type of ammo and i myself never. Go into Taking apart the Firing Pin Module down to the bare firing pin to clean i just simply drop these 2 chemicals down the little hole. Ballistol,CLP,Gun Scrubber Via DROPPER BOTTLE.

Any petroleum distillate might cause skin irritation. Comparing denatured alcohol to ATF is like comparing an atom bomb to plastic explosives as far as the chance of skin irritation.

I am sure ATF might explode if you put in a paint sprayer then fogged a room with it. But WD40 is far more flammable than ATF. In fact, almost any petroleum product once it is atomized is highly flammable. Should we not use anything that comes out of a spray can?

I have sprayed WD40 in locked up small engines. Hauled the engine home. Once I was at home I pulled the rope and the engine fired with nothing but the WD40 in it. I have seen people use WD40 as starting fluid. Should we not use WD40 either?

the current WD-40 will not start a diesel engine or even a gas engine like it did in the past.

and ATF is very flammable. we use it to prime fuel filters in diesel engines when they are replaced. it also helps to lubricate the injectors.

i wouldn't buy WD-40 anymore simply because it's not the same product as years ago. and yes i have used WD-40 in the past for a starting fluid. but that was years ago. that is also why i refuse to use in any my guns anymore.

You do not need to disassemble the bolt every time. It won't hurt, just not necessary. I can't vouch for every parts-bin AK, but rusting on the inside from normal operation/maintenance is extremely unusual. There are all kinds of scary stories about some guy somewhere. Have fun shooting the rifle, sounds like it is in good hands. BTW cleaning does have a way of making me happy too... when it's done

Unless there are serious problems with the chamber, there's no way for the powder gases and primer debris to get into the firing pin channel.

The case head covers the firing pin channel until the bolt is all the way back and the ejector pushes the case out.
