Pulled my AR10 out after hunting all last season and pert of this season with it. have learned to trust this rifle on:
Deer/multiple Pigs/turkey/bobcats/squirrel/coon/rabbits pretty much anything I can get sights on.

I have been trying to keep it clean : but that Red West TX dust gets into every nook & cranny . any edge or screw hole / any kind of indent anywhere on a AR rifle . I spent the whole time watching Olympics tonight cleaning and would go look under a bright light and find more & more. The internals were fine just anything on the outside.

Next time I will take the upper to work at the airport and use a air spray wand with jp4 and power blast every nook & cranny then wipe it down and let it dry in the sun.

when you vets were in the desert how did you clean & lube your rifles

Blow it off with a compressor or canned air, then if its really dirty and you're feeling lazy, put it in the dishwasher - no soap.

when I was on my all expense paid sandbox vacations, i only worried about dirt/grime in or around the chamber, barrel, bolt, and important moving parts. i found that keyboard duster always worked. store it with a light coat of CLP, covered if you can.

same here except for when I had to go to the board for promotion and they expected a combat soldiers weapon to be absolutely spotless.

would a parts cleaner at an auto repair shop work?? hot solvent, vibrating, then blow it dry with the compressed air gun??

If not, I would strip it, spray all parts with brakeleen (degreaser) , soak in Varsol, scrub if needed then compressed air dry.


Or just give it to me and build u a new one confused2
