Gun Scrubber?

Postby duckdog » Sat Jul 16, 2005 9:31 pm

I was wandering if Gun Scrubber is the same thing as carburator cleaner, or brake parts cleaner. It is alot cheaper tha gun scrubber. Anyone ever tried it???

It is similar, but not the same mixture.

With Carb cleaner it can be hard on the wood of a gun, and can leave a thin oily residue. It could also potentially damgae O rings too.

Brake cleaner would be a better choice for a field cleaning being it dries so quickly. It can blast the powder residue/dirt out and a dry action results, which is great in cold weather were a residue would impede the action, especially on semiautos.

Either way, a nitro remover is best for a thorough cleaning to remove the burnt powder residues, especially for gas operated semiautos on the sleeves where the gas operates the action.

I have never noticed a diffrence, you can either pay 10 bucks for a can of powder blaster, of $0.98 for a can of brake cleaner from Walmart.....I've been using the stuff for acouple years GREAT when i'm out prarie dog shooting in SD, just blast some down the barrel and your done...
