I am wondering about using straight acetone outside of course. Nail polish remover is acetone based.

I found myself thinking the same thing. It's pretty darn inexpensive.

I've been wondering about using some of those automotive products that one adds to gas in order to remove carbon deposits on intake valves, etc.
Has anyone tried any of these?

Blue Armadillo is supposed to be a good product for removing all of the fouling in a pistol or rifle bore. A member here used it, followed up with a bore scope , and found it to clean the barrel very well.

CLP (Clean, Lubricate, Protect) products are often used in firearms care. In the following link, CLR (Calcium Lime Rust remover) is recommended for removing carbon. https://www.primalrights.com/library...arrel-cleaning

While it's probably not good for the bluing of a firearm, have any RFC members actually tried it inside a barrel? Is it quackery?

Carbon Remover

I am using Bore Tech C4 Carbon Remover with great success. Does not appear to be toxic, does not smell or burn the skin.

I soak a large patch in the cone area of the breach for about 2 hours. Then brush well (around and around) with a 9mm brush on a pistol cleaning rod. Clean up (around and around) with Hoppes on oversize paper towel patches in slotted pistol jag. Heavy carbon black ring may require repeated treatments until bore scope shows a clean breach.
I clean after every outing. About every 3rd bore cleaning I wipe out the breach cone with C4, no soaking required. This keeps the dreaded black ring away. C4 also cleans carbon fouling on wheel gun cylinders.

Acetone is pretty hygroscopic and may contain highish levels of moisture.
Once the acetone evaporates it might leave H2O behind in the chamber?
Maybe follow with light oil patch before long storage after use in the chamber to mitigate chances of rust?

I'm just guessing here

It was originally designed to clean carbon from jet engines. If you use it, I highly recommend BoreTech Proof Positive jags and brushes, else you'll be cleaning for hours trying to remove what turns out to be copper from your bronze brushes and brass jags.
