Smoke from CLP?

1349 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  joshuades
Does anybody see smoke around the charging handle when they hand cycle? I was working the action on one of my ARs and it's generously lubed and I noticed smoke coming out, I was like what the f?! I don't know if it's b/c I'm going to fast and it's buring the CLP or what. Has anyone witnessed this before?

Uhm... Are you sure it's smoke and not mist? I've seen oil mist before (more pronounced on heavily lubed actions during dry fire, since the impact of the hammer tends to throw off a fine mist), but to heat clp to the point of smoking usually takes some pretty rapid fire, in my experience. That would be some serious hand cycling :shock: :D
