Wow-I've (we've) used brake cleaner in all sorts of degreasing / degunking applications and I have never, not once witnessed anything like flash rusting. You would think on an old tractor, where it's old steel and iron I would have seen this occur.

Interesting.

Well anyway I should have taken a before and after shot of that old FN Mauser bolt. Pretty amazing difference.

I used it for years, too. However, I lately noticed a bit of flash-rust on some BCG's. After discontinuing the use of it, no more. Same for barrel extensions. You shine a bright flashlight on them, it's pretty apparent. Not so much in poorly lit conditions or normal household lighting, some of which I have found to be rather dim in many homes. Mainly, a few of my friends asked me why the hell I was *doing all that*, so I took their advice and experience and stopped and was pleased with my reults.

I dunno, our Master Chief used to do a white glove inspection and as he used to say, "I better, by gawd, pull my hand back and there damn well better be oil on that glove".

Hmm, maybe that's because I wipe parts clean and then spritz them
some with oil. But on old tractors I never did that we just sprayed them off all the gunk came off and we were done.

Never done anything but bore-snake my barrel as far as cleaning it. Just shot this 5 shot group the other week with my 16.1" CHF Chrome lined Daniel Defense. Barrel only has around 2K down it, though.

Aimpoint T2/G33, magazine acting as a monopod, seated at the bench like a fudd.

I now have a couple AK style weapons so I have to study up how to strip them. Romak III is due to be cleaned.
