I can agree with that!
I don't know that I would do it every time I shot a pistol.
I would probably do it like I do detail stripping now.
About once a year the ones that I shoot a lot get detail stripped and deep cleaned.
I have an Ultrasonic cleaner from Harbor Freight of the 2.5 L size. It cleans brass very well. I just got the Firearm cleaner and Firearm lube from Brownell's and I'm planning on trying it out. I've got some C&R's that should give it a good trial. I'll let y'all know how it comes out. I may draw the line at glocks in the bath. Tupperware never does well in the dishwasher :lol:
Frost if you wait a little longer you come over and run it thru the new Hornady unit. I've been waiting for them to arrive and they show them in stock now.
Looks like it's time to burn my Cabela's points!
It is not the end-all you think it is. It will loosen gunk in hidden places. It will sometimes loosen stuff you don't want...colored lettering, glued in sights, Lok-Tite screws, etc.
A lot of how good it works depends on what soap you use. After I ran out of the bought stuff, I use Simple Green. Might be better with the stuff made just for guns (but I know no one is going to actually buy that).
When you bring it out, it will be bone dry. I attempt to dry them with a hair drier, before they start to rust. I get them as dry as I can in the 30 min before they start to rust, and then spray them with Break-Free.
