Gun Cleaning - Part 2 Shotgun Cleaners

Gun Cleaning - Part 2 Shotgun Cleaners

In Gun Cleaning Part 2 we are going to go over the actual cleaning of the shotgun.

Step 1 –  take the shotgun apart

Step 2 – will be to take the barrel off the shotgun. Run a bore snake or cleaning patches on the barrel with some type of solvent until all the copper fouling is out and your patch is not showing any dirt or fouling.

Step 3 – Take the trigger group apart and use a solvent to clean each part. When you have the trigger group apart. Make sure to inspect the pins and springs for wear. If the springs are getting old and are not as tight as they use to be or if they are showing wear it is time to replace. Here at Lohman Gunsmith we inspect each and every part for wear.

Step 4 – Clean the receiver. Spray inside and out and then wipe down with a clean cloth. Always checking to see if there is any wear. This is a good time to use a old tooth brush to really scrub it well. Just like your teeth if you miss a spot you could have a problem there in the future.

Step 5 – Clean the bolt assembly. You spray it down and use your brush to clean it very well.

Step 6 – Put lubricant and oil on the shotgun

Step 7 – Put the shotgun back together again. As you put it back together make sure you are looing at all the parts for wear.
