    "Aluminum: Do NOT use ultrasonic cleaners, harsh solvents, or steel brushes/picks. To avoid permanent damage, only use safe chemicals and brass or plastic utensils."
    I thought the sparrows monocore was stainless?

    Never found a need for pistol parts, but it’s good for restoration projects.
    What do you use for a cleaner? I know there is no aluminum in a BCG but I used to think Simple Green was not harsh but I have read it does not like aluminum. If I screw up an AR BCG no biggie I can get another but I really don't want to screw up my M1A, FAL, Garand, SKS, ect..

    Hornady One Shot is okay to use.
    Lucas Oil makes a solvent for ultrasonic cleaners.
    Everyone has their own mix of whatever they like to use, just be sure it’s designed for what you’re intending to do.

    There is a specific Simple Green for Aluminum.

    Yea, never use an ultrasonic cleaner on aluminum. I heard not to use it on titanium as well for the same reason as aluminum.

    For your stainless steel baffles, especially those covered in carbon and lead, ie. from .22lr or cast bullets, wet tumbling with stainless steel pins is the way to go.
    "Your" does not equal "You're", the contraction for "You are".

    I run Ballistol in mine because when the water dries it leaves behind a thin coat of oil.
