How difficult was it to pass a rifle inspection with a G3 or other HK rifle?

Easy, after you know the tricks. Took me about 2 hours to clean the G3 first time I cleaned it, 15 minutes when I knew how to do it.

Criminy!



Share with me your secrets! Trying to clean in the bolt recess is ridiculous...

 


Field strip rifle and throw it in the showers, I'm guessing.

Military way:
Soak everything with an assload of oil.  Start on the easy parts while the receiver is soaked in oil, it is the hardest part to get clean. The bolt carrier is tricky around the firing pin, except for that it's pretty much straight forward with the lower and barrel.

And do NOT use your sling like a strap wrench to get the bolt back together...I've seen some guys do/try that when they can't get it aligned properly to slip together.

This sure makes things much easier.

Here's a trick, once you use the Chamber Face Cleaning Brush on the chamber face, stick a .308 patch on it and polish it clean.

I've got one but it would not pass a white glove inspection by any stretch.
