    Was wondering if anyone used a small wire brush attachment for the dremel to remove carbon build-up on their rifles? I just started really getting into shooting, and was wondering if using that would damage the BCG at all? Especially the bolt. Any advice is very appreciated.

    Lol… what the fuck. No.

    Edit: Put the Dremel down and back away from the firearm.

    Probably a little too much friction on the coatings if you’re doing it every cleaning. Clp and a rag has worked for forever, no need to get wild. If you used a nylon brush that would be fine.

    Nylon toothbrush. Wire can take off the parkerizing. Do it by hand.

    Thinking a Dremel as the solution keeps gunsmiths in business. That should be your last resort

    Like other dude said if you really want to get at it get a sonic cleaner otherwise rag and solvent.

    If you have to have it spotless get a sonic cleaner. But a brush down with a cloth or brass brush at the most (not on a Dremel) and some CLP will be all you really need.

    I hardly ever take out even the nylon brush, spray everything town with clp take a blue shop towel and a pick like device and get into all the crevices. Done.
