    Cleaning guns with an air compressor

    I finally broke down and got myself an air compressor. I have wanted one for a long time for working on my car. I knew I could also use it for other purposes. Well, today was the first time I cleaned my guns and used compressed air to blow stuff out. After a good scrubbing of Hoppes #9, I used the compressed air to blow it all out. After a good oiling, I used the compressed air to blow out any excess. I didn't have to use a dozen Q-tips to wipe it up. I don't have any pics to show this but if you have hesitated on getting an air compressor, this is one good reason to go ahead and get one.

    Did you also get an inline filter to help filter out some moisture? I use my compressor for just about everything.

    I got a big upright that I use for sand blasting to cleaning guns. Every small shop needs one. They pay for theirselfs in no time.

    I have been using an air compressor for years to aid with gun cleaning. My present method is using CLP and then blowing out the excess. I really like the fact that you are back in business fast and do not have to wait for excess fluids to dry. I use the non-safety type nozzle. That is it really puts a jet of air where directed...no side air for safety relief.
