High-Quality Deluxe Gun Cleaning Set

We used CNC Precision Machined slotted solid brass of very high quality to build all the cleaning jags and slotted loops contained in this cleaning kit.

Even under high pressure, these thin rods cannot be broken easily because they have been strengthened.

There are size labels available for both the cases and the cleaning accessories. With the size label, it becomes convenient to choose your desired size and place them back in their right positions after use.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How Often Should I Clean My Gun?

The first step towards answering this question is to have a clear understanding of why we need to clean guns at all. Each time a gun is fired, the primer in the ammunition cartridge lights up. It produces a flame that lights up the gunpowder. And just like the fire from a log, the gunpowder burn leaves behind a little gunpowder ash residue inside the gun barrel.

You can also find traces of gunpowder ash on the internal parts and even on the slide or frame of the pistol. A tiny amount of bullet metal is scraped on the bore (this is the inside of the barrel) as the bullet goes down the barrel by the action of expanding gases. The bullet metal is usually copper or lead and more is added to the bore due to repeated or continuous firings.

Failure to clean out the scraps regularly leads to a build-up of the metal inside the bore and with time, the reliability and accuracy of the gun begin to get affected. The ash generated and leftover from the burning of the gunpowder may build up over time as a black mass that covers the moving parts of the guns. This prevents them from working normally. It can even attract moisture that may lead to corrosion and rusting.

Firearms are meant to receive light but thorough cleaning after every shooting session to get rid of these metal buildups. When the gun is neat, you can then apply a little quantity of lubricant or light gun oil to any surfaces that touch each other. These include the hinges between a revolver’s frame and cylinder and the rails between the slide and frame of a semi-auto.

You can also swab the bore with an extremely light coat of oil to prevent rust. Using too much lubricant on guns leaves an oily cloud on it the next time you want to use it. So, learn to wipe off the excess lubricant when you’re done with oiling the necessary parts.

Should I Use Oil Inside A Gun Barrel?

Besides the fact that guns do not come cheap, they are just like every other mechanical device whose lifespan and functionality depend largely on regular cleaning and lubrication.

Yes, the barrel of every gun should be oiled. Before you put away a gun for storage, it is good generally to leave a light coat of oil in the barrel. When you want to shoot after lubrication and storage, it’s advised that you run one or two dry patches through the barrel to get rid of the oil.

Can You Overclean Your Gun?

There is nothing like overcleaning a gun. You cannot overclean a gun but you can damage it and affect its functionality when you do not clean it the right way. Here’s a little overview of how you can avoid damaging your gun:

If you make use of bad cleaning rods to clean your gun very often, you are in danger of damaging the crown or rifling. This is one of the biggest concerns with guns because it is very easy for aluminum cleaning rods to scratch the inner barrel if you’re cleaning from the muzzle. It can be avoided by the use of a good cleaning rod-like a carbon fire cleaning rod. And this will make it almost impossible to damage the barrel.

How Often Should I Clean My Gun And Do You Oil The Outside Of A Gun Barrel?

Typically, a gun should be cleaned at least 3-4 times a year. Some people prefer to clean after every use. After cleaning and before putting them away in the storage, lubricate them lightly.

Yes, the outside of a gun barrel should be oiled lightly too, just like the inside. The receiver and the other metal parts should receive a very light coat of oil.

Do You Have To Clean A Gun If You Do Not Shoot It?

Depending on how you take care of them, guns can last for years or even generations. You can extend the life span of a weapon with just your maintenance routine. How often you need to give it a proper cleaning should depend on the rate at which you use it. However, even the slightest cleaning has a noticeable impact.

While some people clean theirs after few months of use, others clean up after each use. It depends on how you use it and how long you want it to last for you. All you need to do to get the most out of your gun is to clean, lubricate and store it properly. If your gun is the type that comes with wood grips, you can add polishing or waxing them to your cleaning routine. Remember that you’ll be needing to replace just a few parts over the years if you’re thorough with your cleaning routine.
