I don't know. Kerosene works well though.

No but it will contaminate all of your Hoppes 9. I usually just brush the bolt with an AP brush and use pipe cleaners to keep the inside clean. If you are worried about hard carbon in the rear, wrapping pipe cleaners soaked in Hoppes around it and turning will take it off quickly. My bolt has a pretty smooth coating so there is not much that will embed itself and require an overnight solvent soaking.

No problem, unless your bolt is chromed or plated with something. KenS

Hell just try it, if it screws up your bolt, let us know.

No, it won't hurt it one bit, but it will clean it good though. I would not worry about it. wipe it off, and apply some CLP or what ever you use afterwards.

[size=3][b] DON'T DO IT ! ! [/b][/size=3] I soaked a Colt 1911 barrel in Hoppes #9 overnight once. The next morning the barrel had disolved into goo lying in the bottom of the bottle. The Hoppes #9 had melted the steel ! [>(] just kidding [:)]
