    Cleaning question - Ultrasonic

    Ive wondered this for a while, but i never thought of asking until today.

    In my line of business, i have access to several different sizes of ultrasonic cleaning systems. If i strip my gun down after im done shooting, and drop the parts in the ultrasonic for cleaning, do you guys think it is safe? I know ill have to still do some scrubbing, and dry it very well, but i wanted to get some expert opinions before i go and ruin one of my firearms.

    Any previous experience of feedback is appreciated.

    I have seen ultrasonic cleaners for guns, which im sure is the exact same thing as any other ultra sonic cleaner.
    make sure you get an appropriate solution for the metal and go for it.
    dont put in any polymer components and you should be good to go

    here's some decent suggestions from another forum on the subject:

    here is a webpage that sells ultra sonic cleaners for guns and the appropriate solution

    I've seriously considered buying an ultrasonic cleaner, but I read somewhere that some alloys don't do good in ultrasonic cleaners. I'm still considering it but I need to research this alloy thing some more before I committ.
