    M240B/MAG58 7.62
    Had to clean one of these after about 8,000 rounds went through it in one day at the range. We got the annual "Spendex" ammo allotment and went to town! Had to clean both barrels because they get issued with a primary and spare. Once I got all the carbon fouling off it was time to start on the copper fouling underneath. I would have never believed copper would get into every part of the gun like it does. Sweets 7.62 solvent is a lifesaver.[8D]

    The ones that say in the manual "do not detail strip past this point",

    like the slide innards of the Kahr PM9/MK9 [and most of them, I'd guess].

    I've never done a complete detail strip [as opposed to clean] on a Para LDA, but I hear it takes a couple of hours.

    All of them. I used to be fanatical about cleaning my guns, but the past year I have struggled to find time to clean any of them.

    Anything with a gas piston recoil system. Its a Bit#h to clean out the gas and piston system. Fortunately I discovered pipe cleaners (non-plastic) work well for tight to reach places like that.

    M249 SAW after shooting 2000+ rnds of blanks.. Can we say CARBON!??! Thought I'd never get that gas reg clean. I still occasionally find a carbon deposit that i somehow missed before! there's just so many places on that damn thing for it to hide!
