The stuff I recommended doesn’t need a sonic cleaner. Soak it and everything should wipe off.

How should I use Carbon Killer?
Carbon Killer was designed for soaking heavily carboned internal steel parts (AR bolt, revolver cylinders, firing pins). Pour Carbon Killer into a small glass or steel tray and place carboned parts inside. This allows for easy removal of parts after cleaning. You can also saturate a patch of rag and place on area you need to clean but soaking parts is far more effective.

Have any of you used this Slip-2000 for carbon removal on a rifle brake? I've been looking for a good solution for removing hard carbon deposits on my 50 Cal Tank Brake. I've tried a couple of products with my sonic cleaner, but not had much success.

Also, could this cleaner be used to remove carbon in a rifle's chamber? I am looking for a way to remove this carbon, between days at a match. I shoot Solid Brass projectiles, and brass/copper fouling doesn't seem to be the bigger issue (I also don't want to have to "foul" the barrel after copper/brass removal at a match), but with the slower powders I shoot, carbon fouling seems to be an issue.

Worth a try. I’ve thrown 1911 barrels and revolver cylinders in it and they come out clean after patches and a wipe down.

Just go buy a CAT tool designed to scrape carbon off the bolt and carrier. Should be $10

Kroil and a green 3M dish pad. Not even kidding. Let the Kroil soak for a minute or two, and the carbon wipes off with the pad.

Best tip I got out of an armorer's class.
Nothing to see here. Continue swimming.

Picked up a bottle of the Carbon Killer. I hope I can shoot enough to really need it. Thanks for the tip.

Which kind of dish pad? The scratchier kind or the plasticy kind

Soaked it for about 2 hours. This about right for cleaning?

Mine has always wiped clean. You may have to take a toothbrush or something to that. I’ve cleaned bolts that had thousands of rounds over years and they looked better.
