How To Properly Clean A Firearm

How To Properly Clean A Firearm

Another professional preparation tip is to remove all live ammunition from the room or area where cleaning work is carried out. Empty all weapon magazines and secure all ammunition in a different location or near the weapon until the cleaning process is complete. A decisive step in the entire cleaning process.

There is nothing more frustrating than sitting down to clean a gun and you are not sure which brush to use. The measuring device is engraved on some drilling brushes, but not others. I recently learned this the hard way when I sat down to clean my AR. I had accumulated a lot of brushes in recent years and threw them on an ammunition organizer.

Add a razor brush to your cleaning set, as many enthusiasts recommend. Hard-to-reach corners and cracks can be easily cleaned with a razor brush, although this appears unorthodox. Since the bristles are short and resistant, dirt and dirt are swept away.

If you are satisfied with your work, but the weapon back together immediately. The longer the disassembled weapon remains, the greater the likelihood that the parts will be lost or broken. Most people with firearms can clean them without help. However, it is also possible to outsource this work to specialists. If you want to clean your own weapon, take these steps carefully and carefully to ensure safety.

Cover a solvent powder plaster lightly with a short stick and work around the inside of the chamber. Then work like the barrel a lightly greased plaster around the inside of the chamber. Please note that you never want to “fold” a brush in the powder solvent bottle so as not to contaminate it.

Throw the plaster over a piece or grind it through a loop before immersing it with solvent. In my experience, prongs create better contact with the surface, but it can be more difficult to push it through the hole. Try to push the plaster through the hole in a gentle motion. Do not rub, change direction or pull the dirty stain back through the hole. Always remove the dirty stain from the pole when you leave the hole.

To ensure the safety of you and your environment, you must remove your magazine and any ammunition that can be loaded into the weapon. Just do this while directing the weapon in a safe direction. Make sure you do a thorough visual and tactile review. Select the appropriate brush size and clean your weapon in the same direction the ball is moving. Use muzzle protection to center the rod when cleaning.

The barrel hole at this point must be completely soaked by the initial spraying and ready for cleaning. Take a barrel cleaning rod and connect the brass tip, which a small square cloth can pass. Once you see the rag come out, stop and remove/unscrew the tip with the dirty rag. Now pull yourself back and pull the cleaning rod out of the barrel. Repeat this process until the rags come out clean.

With some weapons, the barrel is more or less permanently attached to the receiver, so you have no choice but to clean the hole at the end of the snout. In this case, use a drill guide or a drill snake instead of a rigid cleaning rod. Make sure your function checks the weapon several times to ensure that everything returns to its place and works as desired.

However, don’t use too much oil, a little helps a lot. Repeat this with the front end and try to avoid oil getting into the jubilation. Lift the cleaning rod with the accessories for the phosphor bronze brush and run up and down every barrel. Make sure that you get on the throttle presses and back on the cameras. Be thorough and go up and down several times to clear a deposit. The solvent in the gun cleaner helps to break down stubborn dirt.
