I put about 300 rounds through my scar 16 yesterday (mostly supprssed) and cleaned it today. There is quite a lot of gunk in the receiver that I have a difficult time removing. Is there an easy way to clean the inside of the receiver without completely submearsing in a bath? Also cleaning the chamber area whitout removing the barrel.

Compressed air does wonder. Also a cleaning rod of appropriate length can be used as a poking stick to get the rags into the receiver and chamber areas. For nooks and cranies, go to a smoke shop and get some tobacco pipe cleaner.

For the receiver use a cleaning rod with a bore brush wrapped in a patch with some CLP. It doesn't need to be spotless.

For the chamber, use a chamber brush with some CLP. Then wrap that chamber brush in a patch to clean it out. Again, it does not need to be spotless, unless your DS is inspecting it.

Thanks for tips. Using a cleaning rod with a patch to clean the inside of the receiver is a great idea. I also viewed the video by Brownels for some great tips.
