Bravo Company USA has 10-packs of AR 30-rounders in stock for $170–if you’ve got the dough, it’s not too bad of a deal:
So last time I talked about Tec-Shield Elite, I forgot to take some pictures of before and after cleaning. This time, I remembered. I am extremely low on training ammo, like I don’t have any. And the case I ordered didn’t arrive in time for my range session. That left me scrounging through my ammo drawer, trying to find any loose rounds. What I came up with was a hodge podge of old NATO rounds, Magtech Guardian Gold, and ancient Silver Tips. I had less than 75 rounds all together, so the TWOLF wasn’t completely filthy after shooting. But it wasn’t clean, either.
Cleaning was a breeze, just like last time. I sprayed Tec-Shield on a cloth and wiped. That’s it. The only “scrubbing” I had to do was on the carbon you see on the barrel in the upper-left photo. And by “scrubbing” I mean I rubbed a little harder with my cloth. It really seems like I’m just spraying water out of the Tec-Shield bottle, but it cleans carbon easily. It’s still taking time to get used to this “dry lube” effect, but the gun feels slick once put back together.
If you’re still using smelly solvents and petroleum-based oil, move into this century and try Tec-Shield.

Comes with one 30rd mag, and it’s been shot very little. $1300, plus shipping if you’re not around mid-Missouri.
