AWSA Quick Tip
Have your ever wondered if you can over clean your gun? The answer is no, but you can damage your gun if you do not clean it properly.
Here are a few tips to cleaning:
Always use a good cleaning rod and bore brush to keep from damaging the rifling. Aluminum cleaning rods can easily scratch the barrel, use metal rods such as brass or carbon which are better and won’t scratch the barrel.
You can also use a good bore snake to prevent damaging the crown and rifling, but they do not clean the barrel 100%, so you still need to use a good cleaning rod & bore brush.
Also, make sure you use a good cleaning solvent like Hoppe’s. Bad cleaning solvents, or certain oils tend to attract dust and build up leaving a layer of gunk.
If you care about your guns and want them to work properly, then spend the extra time cleaning with good gun cleaning supplies and you will avoid 99% of all gun cleaning problems. I clean my guns after each use before I put them away.
God Bless and Happy Shooting,
