    Default To the FNX owners!

    I have about 1700 rounds through my FNX .45 Tac and being the ocd asshole that I am want to detail strip and clean the innards for two reasons: 1. To clean the innards for my mental well being, 2. Because the farthest Ive gone with it is a field strip. Its obviously got more bits and shit than my G19. Just wondering if anyone else has taken it down further and how to go about it. I can seem to find anything on the interweb.

    Haven't looked into this because I have not found it necessary. 1700 rounds is a little early for such a detailed breakdown in my book. Check youtube yet?

    This would be good advice if I didn't know any better. Please please PLEASE do NOT use an ultrasonic cleaner on a poly gun! I have seen first hand how it breaks down the polymer....to a point I can put a significant gouge in the plastic with only my finger nail. It softens it up a great deal. I would highly advise against this!

    Dont own an ultrasonic cleaner so..

    But for anyone interested I found the vid via youtube:

    It looks like a major pain in the ass, which now is the only thing stopping me from trying it. Its good to know though.

    For cleaning a polymer gun in an ultrasonic I dont use the heat. Just room temp and run it for 2-3 mins. No problems with that so far.

    Doesn't take long. Keep checking it and give it the fingernail test every so often.
