M14 Cleaning video is done!
I finally got around to making a cleaning video. I rambled a lot and the total time is around 45 minutes. I broke it down into 4 parts. I still have to finalize and upload the other three parts but here is part 1:

Great, now I am stuck sitting on the edge of my seat until part 2. When I bought my M1A, I did not expect all the special Lubes, Lube points, and tools required for it as most of my other guns are pretty straight forward. I am really looking forward to the completion of your series so I can get a good solid idea of what is going on with it. I have put about 300 rounds through mine already and have yet to give it a good cleaning.

TonyBen, first, let me say that these videos are great. Having only been with my M1A since November it is great to get some insight from someone more experienced.
Secondly, and not to high-jack your thread, but what is the Tamiya product in the background? I am an experienced military model builder and don't meet too many modelers in my day to day life.

I'm just waiting now for my son to become of age so we can get back into RC cars and planes. My brother had an ET (gosh, I can't remember who make the kit) as well as a glider called the Sagitta and my step-dad had a Super Chipmunk. By the time I was of the age to pay for this stuff myself, I had joined the Marines and RC models were replaced by drinking and deploying.
Thanks for asking. I had a feeling someone would mention it.

I have a question... I've been unable to find any flexible steel cable, handled, cleaning rods as shown in your first cleaning video... the one where you state it is made by Sinclair, Intl. I searched Sinclair's website and didn't see anything which looked like that in your video.

Sorry for the delay, folks. I tried uploading part 3 but it was too long for Youtube at 15:07 so I shortened it last night to 15:00. For some reason, iMovie takes 2 hours to "finalize" a project. I tried uploading again this morning and Youtube wants it shorter than 15 minutes so I had to shave a second off the film and re-finalize it again. I don't have experience with movie making software other than iMovie so I don't know if I'm doing this the hard way.

I just went to Brownells and searched "Chamber Maid" and this popped up.
