Tom’s top tips Gun cleaning tips
When it comes to gun cleaning, there are many different ways to store your bits and bobs. I must admit that I am a big fan in the roll mats that you can get. These are a great bit of kit because they are perfect for carrying all the cleaning equipment and become a protective surface to clean your gun on. These are particularly handy when it comes to loading, as I can take all my gear and set up my own little work station at the end of the day. Another quick cleaning tip is to stuff the end of the barrel with kitchen or toilet paper to prevent the oil from dripping out of the end when you spray it down. I will leave the oil to work its magic on the spent powder before using a ram rod with a bronze brush, with a piece of kitchen roll wrapped wound it to force the plug out on the first pass. Having the paper around the brush prevents the brush becoming full of oil and grime.
