6 Steps For Efficient Gun Cleaning

These are the 6 most important steps to gun cleaning:

Step 1. ALWAYS be sure the gun is unloaded and pointed in a protected direction!

Step 2. Carefully take gun aside, ensuring to keep track of all parts. Please reference your owners manual for detailed instructions on the way to disassemble weapon. For most over/unders, when the motion is closed, you remove the forestock (wooden part the place your front hand goes beneath the barrel) by knocking down on the lever on the forestock. With the forestock off, you open the motion of the gun and pull up and forward on the barrels (watch out to not let the barrels fall off the gun bore cleaner and to the ground once the motion is open). You now have three distinct pieces, the receiver (stock and set off meeting), the barrels, and the forestock. (Additionally, reference our gun cleaning video to follow along visually).

Step 3. Clean your weapon with a solvent (resembling Hoppe's 9). Inside the barrels, use a bore brush or a rod with a patch with solvent applied to the patch. (chooseable pushing from the breach to the front of barrels (the identical direction the shot/slug travels). Then use a clean dry patch and push that patch by the barrels. Continue this alternating process using clean patches (first with solvent after which with out) till the patches not come out dirty. Use a toothbrush with solvent to wash other metal parts of gun to remove collected residue/deposits/"gunk".

Step 4. Remove any remaining solvent from surfaces. Wipe down the firearm and all of the components to remove any residual solvent (which if left on metal might be harmful).

Step 5. Wipe down metal components with light coat of oil/lubricant/rust inhibitor. To guard the firearm and help it perform correctly, wipe down metal parts with a light coat of gun oil or lubricant resembling silicone or RemLube by Remington. Use the lubricant/oil sparingly. Slightly goes an extended way. If the storing the gun, try not to depart fingerprints on it. While the fingerprints will possible not do anything to effect the operate of the gun, they can be unsightly and the oils on your skin may mar the end of the metal.

Step 6. Reassemble weapon and verify that it is functioning properly. Holding the receiver horizontal and with the barrels at a forty five degree angle to the ground, slide the barrels down onto/into the receiver till the "hook" on the backside of the barrel(s) catches within the receiver. Lift up on the front of the barrels until they lock into place. Now reattach the forestock. With the small latch on the forestock open, slide the forestock into place and smoothly close the latch. Then open the breach of the gun and shut it once more to ensure reassembly was finished correctly. All components ought to move smoothly with none extra liquids/oils/and many others visible on any half(s) of the gun. Do NOT use undue force on the weapon. Chances are if it's important to use a lot (if any) muscle, you're doing something incorrectly.
