I have a new MR Nitride coming in today.  I understand it has a painted receiver.  What does everyone use to degrease the action/trigger assembly that won't affect the receiver's coating?  I know they've had problems with the coating chipping.  I don't want to do something to aggravate it. After degreasing, what do you all recommend for lubricating.  I've always used tri-flow, but I'm sure there are better ones out there.

Tony,
When I got my MR rifle with the nitride barrel, I broke it down as far as I could and used Birchwood Casey cleaning and lubing supplies.
The removing of the stock is easy and all you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and an allen wrenck to unscrew the bolt holding the stock to the trigger mechanism. Don't forget to use some of the BLUE LOCK compound on the bolt on the last few threads. The blue only...........
I cleaned it all up and used Ballistol where the sun don't shine and re assembled. 

Ray.........................GOOD LUCK with the new rifle. I can't wait to get to the range.

I'm looking forward to shooting mine.  Will the Birchwood Casey products soften or make my receuver more prone to chipping?

Tony,
I really don't know but if CVA is using the same procedure like they did with the older MR'S,  my old one is 2 yrs old), then we have nothing to worry about. It didn't harm the finish on that one.
 You might want to check with Jonathan or call CVA themselves. You might get a a guy named DAKOTA. He helped me out when I had a little problem with the first MR chipping. The barrel was chipping.

Ray

No, the Birchwood Casey GUN Scrubber will be safe with the MR finish.

LOL no, they are GUN Scrubber and BORE Scrubber. Just wanted to make sure the GUN part stood out. Gun scrubber is almost like a carb cleaner, only no where near as aggressive. Safe for all finishes.

From their web site.

Q: Will Gun Scrubber damage plastic?
A: Gun Scrubber may harm some plastics, painted surfaces, synthetic stocks, camouflage finishes and wood finishes. Do not allow product to pool on, in or under firearm, or components to reduce the possibility of damage. Test an area before using.

I watched your video, Jon. Do you still like those particular cleaners for new gun cleaning?

yes I do. The JB Bore paste though, I replaced with Remington 40x bore cleaner. Its slightly abrasive and cleans the bore better IMO.

I dont let any cleaning product touch the stocks when cleaning..I remove them if doing a complete cleaning....

when cleaning trigger assembly and firing pin  I use 91% alcohol first...after that I use a hoppes to get any remaining crud...then rinse again with Alc..then blow it out with either canned air or compressor...then I re oil every thing with a needle oiler..and wipe any excess off....

Jon may be right it won't harm finish..but I wont take the chance ..
