My otis thread brought up something I hadn't thought about. What's the best way to clean the lugs and chamber?

Are you talking about the chamber brush? I had one for awhile and never used it, my brother who has been into AR's alot longer than me said it's not necessary.

Chamber brush, q-tips, CLP and a can of carb or brake cleaner to flush things out.

I used clp and the long wood Q-tips from Brownell's. Worked, will add carb cleaner for nastier jobs.

I bought a chamber brush, a steel rod, and a t-handle from Otis just for cleaning the chamber. The individual part numbers aren't all on their web site, so you may have to call them to get what you need.

hmm I like the chamber stars. every armorer I ever met had that wierd finger that could get on the back side of those lugs.

Been using their chamber rod/brush for a few months now.
4 or 5 turns followed by a solvent patch, and the chamber and lugs are nice and clean.
