    Looking to buy this unit. Want to do whole AR uppers and lowers as well as barreled actions. Going to purchase the lube tank as well. Anyone else used this product and have a recommendation one way or another? Happy new year!

    Have one and the lube tank - works well for the uses you intend. At todays prices you have to clean a lot of parts or a few parts very often to recover the cost based on saved time.

    Well I was looking at a 5000+ unit and I had the same thought. But looks like at this price. Around 1200 you could save some time and money. Would love to split one with someone close to me or know someone that had a nice unit. I would pay big bucks to use it. With 4 AR’s and 3 cans plus the countless other bolt guns I have. This could be a huge help to pop a few pins or screws and soak and lube and wipe down, or is my thinking completely wrong?

    It all depends on how much you value your time. I purchased mine for my own use for about $1100 with lube tank at the time. I am a firm believer in ultrasonic cleaning for many purposes. My uses have been for barreled actions of my own and friends bolt and lever guns plus a few large batch parts for myself and friends. Since my expenditure was not a burden to my budget I can say that I am satisfied with my purchase.

    I think that from your description of your intended use you will be pleased with the results. The time you save could be better spent on trigger time (the most precious time for a serious shooter) and therefore well worth the expense.

    P.S. You would not believe how much brass you can clean in one batch!

    Nope, looks like this one totally new to me. I didn't try it yet. But if it is good and comfortable I will surely try for it.
