cleaning

  1. Guns
    Im new to guns and was looking for some advice. A buddy of mine has been shooting, reloading for over 30 years both long guns, muzzle loaders, and pistols. He indicated that I could clean pistol bore with JB Bore paste to reduce microscopic defects. The intent is to improve grouping. Again...
  2. Guns
    Hey All, I am new to owning a pistol and got my grubby little hands on an x5 Legion, which was very slightly used. I ran about 150 rounds total of 124gr S&B and Winchester through it last Monday and it ran beautifully. The question, I am looking for a good cleaning tutorial, what would the...
  3. P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    I don't know if this is a known thing or not. I've recently acquired a Sig M18 and have mounted a Trijicon RMR sight. After firing several rounds, the front lens of the RMR is coated with what I assume is burnt powder. I believe it's being ejected from the loaded chamber indicator on the top...

    Hello, all. I'm fairly green when it comes to conceal carry, and this is the first summer I'm carrying, and it is HOT here in Chicago! I've noticed that after I come in from outside, my pistol is covered in sweat (I carry IWB @ 3 O'clock position). I'm pretty sure that's not good for the...

    Hey All, I'm new to ARs and guns in general. Whenever I get a new one I like to clean it before I use it. I recently purchased Sig's M400 Tread. Should I just rely on the manual or does someone have a video link they really like. I can look up any video, but wondering if you know of a link you...

    The latest NRA mag had an article about a revolver very hard to cock or turn the cylinder. Among other things, the author recommended Sentry Solutions Smooth Kote as a lubricant. Anyone have an opinion on dry lubes like this vice oil or grease for semi-autos?
  7. Legion Series
    I have a Hornady 7L Sonic Cleaner. Just got it. Also just picked up my P229-Legion (what a gorgeous gun). I've had a P226-RX for a while, and several other guns. I decided it was time to try the Sonic Cleaner after a day at the range. Measured out the proper solution and placed my P226...
  8. P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    This is my first time posting here and I am really happy with all the content. You guys are great. I was hoping you can help me with something simple. Is there a good link or guide to taking apart my p320 magazines to clean? Also, the 13th round is a killer. I have seen posts in my searches...

    Hello. I recently purchased a 320c. Read a few different things about what cleaner and or lubricants that are recommended. What is everyone using? What's your recommendation and why? Thanks guys.
  10. SIG Sauer Pistols
    I got a new SP2022 in 9mm a couple weeks ago and have only been out to shot it twice. The first time i was using Federal Champion in brass and aluminum and shot about 125 rounds. I cleaned it before and after that trip using the sample of TW25B, all seemed normal. This last time i shot Perfecta...
  11. SIG Sauer Pistols
    I just bought my first gun, the SIG P290 rs, with the laser. I'm pretty pumped! I intend for this to be my EDC after I get my carry license, but will use it now for home defense. As you can see in the pic, it's two-tone. I bought it used, and would love some advice on how to clean it. I...
  12. Gun Gear
    My SP 2022 user's manual warns not to use a wire brush as it can scratch the machined surface of the barrel. I've been using a nylon brush instead but wondered what experience others have had. What kind of brush should I be using?
  13. SIG Sauer Pistols
    Is aerokroil (or kroil in general) good to clean a gun with? As in the barrel, slide, and other mechamisms
  14. SIG Sauer Pistols
    I have been thinking of using froglube on my p226. My 226 is brand new with nitron finish. Is this safe on the finish? I had hoppes elite dull my finish so much in one light use now my slide looks light gray. When i oil the slide and it's wet the finish looks fine but when the oil wipes off it...
  15. Guns
    Just wondering what are your thoughts on ultrasonic cleaning? I see Hornady sells a cleaner and I was curious if anybody has used this for cleaning their weapon? It can be use for brass, but I'm looking to see how it works for cleaning the whole pistol. If so, what are your thoughts. Thanks...
  16. SIG Sauer Pistols
    Hello all, I recently made the jump from Glock to Sig with the purchase of the M11-A1. I noticed the magazines are covered in some sort of oil/grease inside and out. How in the hell do I get it off? I've tried ballistol, hoppe's, even 409. Forgive me if this is a noob question but I'm desperate...
