    Speaking of cleaning...

    I am going to be trying out a new sonic cleaner with the RCBS ultrasonic cleaning solution to clean revolvers and carbine actions.

    Anybody got any experience with these?

    Just use the dish washer

    I have cleaned my guns so many time in the dish washer so much so the wife calls it a gun washer.

    Rob,

    My two cents -

    I do a full disassembly of my vastly superior Rogers & Spencer as an "off season" task.

    This allows me to not only have the time to thoroughly clean/oil her internals, but also eyeball the various parts for serviceability & replace if required.


    Carbine (M-2 Maynard) is much less involved: standard field stripping with cleaning via Dawn & hot water. Oiled patches daily for the bore, (and externally if needed) for the following week, then every other week during off season.

    I bought the thing with modern guns in mind (of course the wife sees it as a very large jewelry cleaner) and thought I would give it a go with the smokers.
    My adjutant cleans his revolvers with it but he is still new in the game. I am just tired of tearing down 4 revolvers after every skirmish and my newbies are still a bit too new to all this to have them dissasemble clean and reassemble my revolvers.

    They work extremely well if you are completely disassembling the revolver. Gets the gunk out of all the little nooks and crannies.
