    Cleaning 10\22 Magazines

    Well used 10\22 Magazines

    Would you drop them in the ultrasonic cleaner either assembled or disassembled?

    Gun oil on spring and reassemble?

    I see no reason you couldn't use the ultrasonic cleaner. If it were me I'd disassemble them first so you could be sure the crud was all out. I don't know about oiling the spring. I think I would look at some kind of dry lube. It's been a while since I did mine, I'm interested to see what others have to say.

    I disassemble them and spray them out with Gun Scrubber and scrub with a toothbrush. I then lube them with Hornady dry lube. Been doing this for a long time.

    .

    I use the EASY button and drop them (fully assembled) into a bath of new/clean kerosene for a swirl-n-swim of a few hours, ensuring that I move the followers (etc) while they're in there awhile.

    I remove them from the kero (which should now have streaks of dissolved gunk in it), shake them off & air dry for awhile.

    When the carrier evaporates, the kero leaves a very thin film of oil, even in hard-to-reach places.

    .
    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    I disassemble them, clean them the old fashion way with oil and a toothbrush.
