Gun Cleaning Guide

Step 1
Scrub out your gun bore with the correct measurement 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 may be wantred as being made of natural hair it's hydroscopic. This truth will help this brush retain more of it's bore solvent chemical and for a longer period. In some purposes a bristle brush can subsequently be an improvement over a phosphor bronze brush. This technique nonetheless, is now more commonly used in Europe.

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

Step 3
Subsequent oil the gun bores through the use of a clean Wool mop and a few liberally applied Rangoon oil. Rangoon being a tenacious and slow evaporating oil permits the gun bore to be stored away for longer durations than usual. Sometimes wash out the wool mop with warm soapy water. Use paraffin or turps first if the mop is very dirty. Then when the mop is dry re-soak in clean Rangoon oil and we suggest you retain 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 if you install a Muzzle stuffer this will with the snap caps in place not solely hold the oil vapour inside the barrel, however may also keep the dirt out and defend the tip of the barrels in opposition to damage in your gun cabinet

Step 5
Earlier than firing the gun once more it is important to remove all trace elements of oil. Oil remaining in the barrel however slight might critically rival the barrel partitions attributable to hydraulic conversion process. Remove all superfluous oil with a patch and jag turning the patch over until it is clean. Always check the chamber before firing and if there may be powder residue around the forcing cone remove it with a chamber brush. We advise you never to power a Payne Galway type chamber brush down the barrel as this type of brush will eventually come apart and may also damage the gun.

Tips and Final Word...
When cleaning a rifle or pistol use the identical method as for a shotgun except substitute the cut up brass jag for a Diamond jag and alter patch to the natural flannel type Rifle patch. To make use of the diamond jag place the jag diagonally across the patch on the finish and rotate till the patch has wound absolutely across the jag. If the patched jag is simply too big for the bore in diameter, lead removal unroll a bit of of the patch at a time, trim and rewind identical until the proper interference diameter is obtained. When cleaning continue to alter the patches until the final patch discarded is completely clean.

Lastly we would supply this good advise. Never be tempted to use a set of Gunmakers Turnscrews unless you might be completely sure that the Turnscrew blade has been precision ground to the exact size of the slot in your gun screw and the tool metal is properly hardened. Engraved gun screws are very expensive to restore and the inaccurate sized blade can in a short time cam out of the screw in question and should damage the gun screw or the end on the gun. In some cases even injury to the user can occur. If you're not sure always ask you gun supplier for advise. In the event you must use a turnscrew on your gun make your that it's of good manufacturer not an affordable and poorly made import.
