    Ultrasonic cleaning. Anyone here do it, tried it, have thoughts about it?

    I've got an ultrasonic unit that I bought for cleaning my scuba regs. With 4 pistols to clean every week or two, it seems like a reasonable time saver. Not that I really mind doing it by hand, this would just give me back an hour or two every week...

    Basically an object is inserted into a bath of water or cleaning solution, and it is bombarded with ultrasonic waves. It will clean just about anything. Simply put it vibrates grease, dust, dirt, etc etc off the object submerged.

    Same thing that jewelry stores use to clean rings and watches.

    I know that my gun shop offers this service, but I have never tried it.
