I wanted to get everyone's opinion on what is the best way to clean the CMR-30 and what solvent/oil is the best????? I use Hoppe's #9 solvent and Venom Gun Oil. We all know by now that the CMR is very sensitive to dirt and needs periodic cleaning much sooner than other rifles. I just put 240 rounds through mine yesterday and that now adds to about 150 or so that the previous owner put so it is now time for me to clean it which will be the first time for me! Let me hear what works best with everyone so I can learn?????

Really dude, the lube you use isn't all that critical. It's more important that you just do it. I just cleaned mine for the first time (acquired it used with a low round count from a guy that called it a jam-o-matic). I've only had malfunctions with 30gr ammo and I hope once it breaks in more that will cease as well.

I'm a fan of Corrosion-X for all around cleaning, lubrication and rust protection. Most carbon in the action comes right off by lightly rubbing with just about any gun oil and I don't clean my bores until accuracy suffers, then I use a foaming bore cleaner to remove the copper and lead fouling. A rifle barrel will typically be more accurate (consistent) with some fouling in the bore.

I did also put some Slipstream weapon grease on some of the moving parts just to try it, so far I've shot 2-3 mags through it of dirty Armscor ammo with no issues.

I use a bore snake to remove powder residue from barrel and chamber, use hoppe's spray cleaner to wipe off bolt and housing, spray Otis dry lube on all moving parts and let it dry for about 5 minutes and reassemble. The dry lube seems to hold up better and also not become fowled with the burnt/unburnt powder that causes the sluggish bolt problems some were having that was causing jams. Be sure and take your mags apart and clean them also. I use a small shot of dry lube in them also and wipe it around to keep the same powder fowling from jamming up the mag.

I am kind of curious if you can just clean up the bolt and barrel and lubricate the rails how long I can keep it running without doing some kind of deep clean.

It is mostly a range toy for me. So jamming occasionally will not threaten my life.
