CJ....We should be able to host a barbeque/build/cleaning party at my place in the garage on the 9th of January. I should have a solvent tank and a small air pancake air compressor running by then also. The garage will be wired in with twice the lighting it has now and the above ceiling in the attic insulated to hold in the heat coming out of the 2ton split unit. I should also have the TV and surround sound hooked up in there also. Now if I can just find a big brass pole someone can bring the strippers.

x2, If I am going to shoot, I make sure I have enough time to clean them right then and there.

It even looks like it has the purple/pink bearing grease still in the bcg....

CLP FTW! Had a buddy of mine squirt some in a solo cup while he was cleaning. It ate through the cup and some of the table. Good shit!

Maybe it's just the jarhead in me but I allot my self at least 30 minutes after a shoot to clean my shit. It's just habit to take care of your gun after EVERY use to me. I find it relaxing.

I clean my AK every year or two when I go to Ennis. A buddy has an automotive parts washer and it makes cleaning it a breeze.

Even with all the thousands of rounds it eats, it has never jammed. It would be my "if you could have only one rifle" choice.

damn, I now have one too, I would have never thought about using it to clean my guns. Time to clean it up and put some new solvent in there!
