View Full Version : Mag tubes... Do you clean them and with what?

This is an offshoot of the "followers" thread. I thought it was interesting and needed a different topic.

Every few break downs I use a Tornado brush wrapped in a Rem-Oil wipe, and follow that with a clean wool swab to get the soot out. I've never seen any serious deposits in there, so no cleaners, brushes or scrubbing. I also keep the follower clean and lightly oiled by wiping it with Rem-Oil and drying it with a rag.

I'm just trying to keep it slick, clean and dry.

EDIT: And dammit, no matter how many times I edit this post, the effin' innuendo potential is hilarious... :rofl::rofl:

What do you folks do?

I simply run my home made polishing rod through the mag tube every time I clean the weapon. Nothing on it, just dry. I run the tube dry also. Keeping it polished is all it needs to ensure the best feed. the rod is nothing more then a 7/16th hard wood dowel with 000 or 00 steel wool wrapped around it like a large Q-tip then put in my drill.
