I’ve seen various “Gauntlet” videos where Guns are slathered in mud and dunked in water. This would then require some serious cleaning afterwards. I’m assuming it a water rinse, or sonic cleaning. I have some very dirty guns, I’m not a giant fan of cleaning them but it has its rewards.
I have a sonic cleaner and I’ve mainly only used that for parts, barrels, but never a slide or a frame. I’m curious if i can clean an entire frame and slide without doing major disassembly, just shelf strip. Can this be done safely, and after what is the best way to ensure it’s dry? I’m sure getting it dry then oiled is critical to avoiding rust before storing.
Other things to consider like temperature or cleaning solutions I should use to avoid damaging a finish? Which finishes are safe? Which are not? CeraKote?
