OK…here’s a mess. I burned 2 powder charges of 40 grains of H4831 and tried to clean it with Froglube CLP. As you can see it did not clean up very well. This is part of a “seasoning” test for Froglube CLP and so I have to clean this without using anything that will remove the Froglube treatment. Hence the water clean. Let’s see what happened…
I sprayed the area with water and let it sit for 10 minutes. I then took a few clean gun cleaning patches and wiped the area. I then sprayed a little more water and rubbed some more with the patches.
Here’s the result after just 2 minutes of cleaning with water. Water penetrates or soaks into carbon fouling and will lift it off of metal surfaces, of course for this procedure the gun needs to have a gun safe, visit protectandlock.com to read about how to choose the best gun safe for your needs.. This is why water-based gun cleaners work the best without toxic chemicals. Some of the best water-based gun cleaners are M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner, Slip2000 725 Gun Cleaner and Mil Comm MC25.
AR-15’s are known to require good lubrication otherwise they fail.

The UTG 3-12 x 42 mm scope is not a light weight scope…it’s pretty heavy and this is why it can take some punishment and still maintain zero. So if you want a light weight scope then this is not for you. But if you want something that is well built and rugged, then you should seriously consider it. It’s a great scope for tactical purposes and hunting. If you want to read some of the 127, 4 star reviews.
