If you shoot corrosive ammo thru a rifle what parts of the rifle are affected? Take an AK for example, I would think more than just the bore would need attention. I would think the bolt and bolt carrier would need a good cleaning along with the gas tube and chamber. I'm not sure about the receiver and cover plate or the trigger and hammer area. Thanks for any input.

On an AK, you would want to treat everything but the wood. Those corrosive salts in the priming compound go everywhere the smoke goes.

Corrosive ammo = make friends with windex.
