Have you tried blasting it out with compressed air from those little computer dusters or even a compressor? I reckon running a bit of Hoppe's into those nooks and blasting it out with the air can remove a ton of it without the need for breaking down every piece of it.
I'll have to pick up some of that gunscrubber then....I've been using remoil but it doesn't say anything about being polymer-safe and that scares me! Thanks
for the tips....if I get brave and decide to tear it down I'll let ya'll know how it goes.
