RAP Weirdness

While cleaning my 9mm, I hit it with Break Free Power Blast. The only adapter effect I could tell was my takedown lever discoloring. Otherwise the piece did not seem altered. It's no big deal as I can now tell mine from others RAPs in a big pile. Thoughts?

If I'm going to do a deep scrub I will mostly use Simple Green on certain Firearms you can get away with carb cleaner but even that can be a little harsh I had to have had trouble with power blast, on my Saiga it started to remove the paint on the receiver

That appears to just be dried solvent. I'll bet if you rub a little oil on that, that surface residue will go away.

Hey, I just tried that. I had some Hoppes gun oil handy, so I hit it either that. Problem solved,

Glad I could help. I learned my lesson on brake cleaner, it's even worse.
