Go to Wal-Mart and get yourself an Outers 12ga mop. Wet it with your solvent of choice, and then go to town on that gas tube. Then, use 12 ga cleaning patches to remove the nastiness.

Since the mop is sized for a shotgun cleaning rod, you will either have to use a shotgun cleaning rod or use an adapter to get it to fit on a rifle cleaning rod.

Enjoy.

Thanks. Much appreciated.

No scrubbing needed, i.e. a brush?

I thought the piston scraped it clean.

I've never felt the need to use a brush, and seriously doubt that it would ever require it.

The metal that the gas tube is made of is probably much softer than barrel steel, and might be unduly abraded if you attempted to use a brush anyway.

I personally, just use a nylon rifle brush, and swap out real good. Be double sure that you dry up as much of the solvent as you can, and don't CLP etc because it could carbonize and hang up the piston.
