    I read of fella who was going to clean his rifle useing a home made electric cleaner useing a cup of baking soda for each gallon of water
    basicly a reversal of electricly cleaning the bore useing a bathtub and a dc power supply, copper wire and steel rods as the annodes and the rifle as the cathode?
    I would venture to guess this would work but would be hard on the finish?

    Interesting, since electro cleaners are supposed to get rid of metal. Don't think I would want to test it on one of my guns.
     

  3. The bore ceaners work, but this guy wants to do the outside of the rifle?

    You could always test it out on a junk receiver or barrel.
