    FN made a scraper tool to get into some of the nooks and crannies to get out carbon, However these were not generally available to the public, and the odd ones that make it out into the wild go for about $200 on ebay. I make a replica for half that price which is available on my website. Either of these will get off the lumps, but you need scotchbrite or a wire brush to really get down to clean metal.

    Yes it will, just make sure that there is no oil on the piston or inside the gas block when you are shooting and you will not need to do any scraping.
