Excellent videos. But for some reason Part 4 freezes at 2:37. The rest won't load.

Q... Is Rem Oil & Otis cleaning solvents "harsh" The Otis says it protects blueing & phosphatizing, so I'm guessing the Otis is ok, but what about Rem Oil?

Thanks! I just checked the video and it worked all the way through for me.

Tony, I'm more of a lurker and i wanted to say thank you. Your videos have been great and valuable to me. I'm a newbie to tinkering with my M1A but I have had one for 25 years and just got my second one. Thanks to the great tutorials on YT I have added some upgrades and I've learned to fully disassemble and clean my rifles without fear. I hope to become more than an amateur after reading in this forum and watching your videos. "Subscribed"

Thanks from tonyben

Thanks Tony for sharing this useful video. My uncle have one M14 and he use GI cleaning kit consists of tools, brush and cleaning rod handle. This tool has a screwdriver, a nut wrench for the gas cylinder nut, and is designed to disassemble the bolt. He use to clean the bore on a regular basis.

Thanks from tonyben

Perfect timing. I have not stripped and cleaned mine yet. It's a NM which I have kept clean but w/o a take down. Hope you have mentioned the bedding. If not, any hints?
Thanks TonyBen

Very informative. I learned the M14 in '75, courtesy of the Marines. One thing we always did was field-strip the rifle when cleaning, so no problem with bolt smash! :)
Pretty much all we were taught was scrub the bore and wipe everything else down.
Once, though, when we were preparing for an inspection, one of the sergeants came in with power drill. He clamped in a cleaning rod w/brush, and proceeded to use the assembly on the bores of our rifles!! :o He was serious about us passing the rifle inspection!

Thanks from tonyben

I just finished watching all four parts, and again it was very interesting and informative.
I really like the 'Chambermaid' tip. I never could get the GI brush to work; the one I have fit so tight that I couldn't get it to turn and barely got it out!

I gather this rifle is bedded and used for competition, hence the cleaning without field-stripping--as well as the grease under the ferrule. That was new to me!! In the Corps, we were taught to use grease (Lubriplate) sparingly on the bolt lugs and roller, presumably because excess grease would be a crud magnet in the field. Oil was for the rest, as well as rust prevention.

Thanks again!!

Thanks from tonyben

You can take down your NM rifle for an initial cleaning. After that, once a year or after every 1500 rounds is a good routine to keep unless your rifle was exposed to rain/fog/mud.

Tony.
