    hi all,

    i have a hammerli AR20, the front of the rifle is a solid metal shroud, but it gets a bit dirty quickly,
    i want to get it clean and shiny again, but im unsure what to use,

    im hesitant of using soapy water, and im just as hesitant of using chemicals,

    what do you use to clean up your rifles ?

    I spray Napier VP90 onto a cloth and then wipe my gun over. I also use it on the pull through patches when cleaning my barrel.

    Nooooo the ar20 is not polished aluminium as standard. From memory it's anodised so auto sol will ruin the finish
