Gun Cleaning Information

Step 1
Scrub out your gun bore with the correct size Phosphor bronze brush and use Bor-Solv supreme bore solvent. This will if used vigorously remove all powder fouling and residue. Often a Bristle brush could also be favorred as being made of natural hair it's hydroscopic. This fact will help this brush retain more of it is bore solvent chemical and for an extended period. In some purposes a bristle brush can due to this fact be an enchancment over a phosphor bronze brush. This technique however, is now more generally utilized in Europe.

Step 2
After scrubbing out utilizing both sides of a Herringbone 4"x 2" patch in a Cut up brass or Nylon jag. This will remove all the contaminated solvent. The cut up jag is utilized by inserting a patch halfway and longitudinally into the split after which rotating the patch in your hand in the direction you're going to tighten the patch and likewise twist the rod in use. All the time check the chamber when cleaning and if there is powder residue across the forcing cone use a Chamber brush deal with with a Payne Galway chamber brush to remove residue build up.

Step three
Subsequent oil the gun bores by utilizing a clear Wool mop and some liberally utilized Rangoon oil. Rangoon being a tenacious and gradual evaporating oil permits the gun bore to be stored away for longer intervals than usual. Often wash out the wool mop with warm soapy water. Use paraffin or turps first if the mop may be very dirty. Then when the mop is dry re-soak in clear Rangoon oil and we recommend you keep the mop in a contemporary polythene sleeve or related container.

Step four
When storing your gun do not forget to first relieve the tension of the primary springs by inserting a suitable pair of Snap caps and dry firing the gun. Then after in case you set up a Muzzle stuffer this will with the snap caps in place not only maintain the oil vapour inside the barrel, however will even maintain the dirt out and shield the tip of the barrels in opposition to damage in your gun cleaning solvent cabinet

Step 5
Before firing the gun once more it is very important remove all trace components of oil. Oil remaining within the barrel however slight may severely rival the barrel walls due to hydraulic conversion process. Remove all superfluous oil with a patch and jag turning the patch over till it is clean. At all times check the chamber before firing and if there is powder residue across the forcing cone remove it with a chamber brush. We advise you by no means to power a Payne Galway type chamber brush down the barrel as this type of brush will finally come aside and may damage the gun.

Suggestions and Final Word...
When cleaning a rifle or pistol use the same method as for a shotgun besides substitute the split brass jag for a Diamond jag and change patch to the pure flannel type Rifle patch. To make use of the diamond jag place the jag diagonally across the patch at the end and rotate till the patch has wound absolutely across the jag. If the patched jag is just too massive for the bore in diameter, unroll a bit of the patch at a time, trim and rewind similar till the correct interference diameter is obtained. When cleaning proceed to vary the patches until the final patch discarded is entirely clean.

Lastly we'd provide this good advise. By no means be tempted to make use of a set of Gunmakers Turnscrews unless you're absolutely certain that the Turnscrew blade has been precision ground to the precise measurement of the slot in your gun screw and the device metal is properly hardened. Engraved gun screws are very costly to restore and the inaccurate sized blade can very quickly cam out of the screw in query and will damage the gun screw or the finish on the gun. In some cases even injury to the consumer can occur. If you are unsure always ask you gun supplier for advise. When you must use a turnscrew on your gun make your that it's of excellent manufacturer not a cheap and poorly made import.
