Has anyone used a liquid vibratory cleaner for pistols?

Has anyone used, or have advise, in using vibratory cleaning machines to clean bullseye pistols?  My main concern is damaging the gun.

its all about the cleaning solution.  many use simple green, the wash after in water followed by spraying everything with oil, I would not put the barrel in at all, clean it traditional and all will be good.

Its not a problem depending on what solution you use. If you're trying to avoid dis-assembly, give up now. But you can take only the top end off the gun and hang it and/or the bottom end in the tank with good results. I use Oil-Eater mixed in water, then a rinse in super hot tap water followed with my favorite gun oil and a compressed air blow out. But really, if it needs this kind of cleaning its time to take it apart and give it the ultrasonic treatment if you have one. Mine has to be really nasty to justify this, so don't do it often. Plain ol' cleaning works just fine.

Some cleaning solutions can embed themselves in the metal, which could result in more leading or other issues, I just rather clean the barrel separate.
