I just had an issue like this on my AR 15. I used carb cleaner and a paper towel.

    Any organic solvent should work acetone, methel-ether-ketone carb and choke cleaner, googone.... gasoline... any will work. be careful though what it does to the finish on the stock.

    Another vote for Goo Gone and acetone.

    Chlorinated brake cleaner in a spray can. Non flammable, but you still need a good exhaust fan. Don't let it get on your stock.
