No, actually I'm old, overweight and cranky as hell. Its taken me over sixty years to get to this point, and dammit, I deserve it!

Does one ever truly get it all out?

I'm still getting ooze from my M48's hand guard after twenty or so rounds.

I used the EZ Off method when I purchased the rifle in winter of 2006.

Some milsurps, I think, never lose all their saturated grease. I always, nearly always, carry some paper towels with me to the range for wiping off boiled out grease from a lot of rounds fired or just a hot day.

I've heard of people putting shorter stocks in the dishwasher, but the detergent bleaches the stock, however the hot water and steam get out some dings and dents. I've built a "Cosmo Coffin" (large rectangular sheet metal tube) powered by a small space heater, let the stock and hand guard sit in it for about an hour and wipe down with denatured alcohol and repeat for about 12 to 18 hours. It may not get all of it out but pretty darn close. Best part is it's reusable.
