    Thought I'd pass along a tip for you shooters of gas-operated autoloaders:

    Use Never-Dull (or Eagle 1 Polishing wadding, it's the same stuff)to clean the carbon build up on the magazine tube directly under the gas ports. It takes a little bit of rubbing, but it WILL remove the carbon without harming the chrome on the magazine.

    Good shooting!

    "If you put a bit of Break Free CLP on the tube after cleaning then the next time....." But first, you have to get it clean...which was my point. ;)

    BTW, I tried CLP....the crud was worse than with nothing at all. :(

    Try some of the BreakFree stuff out of an aerosol spray can. I don't know why, but it cuts that crud off of the mag tube like nothing else, if you use a good heavy shop towel and a liberal application of the spray. The plain liquid is OK, but does not do as well as the spray can. Wally World even carries the stuff now. The Nev R Dull stuff is sometimes hard to find, but I would think it should work alright.
