Tom’s top tips Gun clean­ing tips

Sporting Gun - - GUN ROOM TOM’S EASY RECIPE -

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.
