It continues to mature at a glacial pace, hoping it soon crosses a threshold leading to an SM review.

In the meantime these two well-written documents provide detailed information.

1. Manual

2. Cleaning the Bullet IR wIndow

The second is encouraging for specifying a fairly long interval between cleanings, but the procedure looks ugly. Too many loose screws.

It sounds awkward, though the number of screws won't impress anyone who's undressed a Behmor (for anything from a little chaff vacuuming to changing the afterburner). :-/ What looks chancy to me is that non-detachable (?) cable to the electronics on the front panel assembly... prop it up as best you can, then scrub on this hopefully well supported part. Hope that cable has a solid mechanical attachment on both sides! The business with the drum, nah, though it must be awkward - pushing the drum back while you're easing the panel forwards and holding up the now loose panel assembly.
