Here are some basic
tips for the care and maintenance of your firearm. While some people have
preferred techniques for cleaning their firearms, this is the method we
at JIB would recommend, in order to maintain the condition of both your
firearm and your cleaning products.
Remember that you need
to clean ALL oil residue from the barrel prior to shooting. This is achieved
by passing through a small amount of JIB flannel / patches either by pushing
or pulling using a JIB Jag or JIB Loop attachment accordingly, until the
flannel comes out clean. Keep turning over the flannel / patch or use a
new piece to ensure it starts in the barrel clean. Do so until all the
oil residue is removed from the barrel.
Apply JIB Gun Cleaning
Solvent by placing either a JIB Wool Mop or JIB Flannel / Patch in solvent,
then running down the inside of the barrel leaving the solvent for a few
minutes to breakdown any build-up. After leaving for a few minutes, attach
the JIB Bristle Brush to the JIB Rod and start scrubbing the barrel (use
the JIB Bronze Brush if the barrel has a heavier build-up due to a larger
number of shots being fired). When scrubbing, make sure you push the brush
all the way through the barrel to the other end and then pull back. Repeat
this step a number of times until the barrel is completely free of powder
residue build-up. Once this is done, use a clean piece of JIB Flannel /
Patch either by pushing or pulling using the JIB Jag or JIB Loop attachment
accordingly, until the Flannel it comes out clean. (Keep turning over the
piece of Flannel / Patch or use a new piece to ensure that it always starts
in the barrel clean). Once the Flannel / Patch appears to be coming out
clean after each use, stop this procedure. Now use a clean piece of JIB
Flannel / Patch in the JIB Loop attachment and apply a light coating of
JIB Gun Oil down the barrel in order to protect your firearm until it required
Please ensure that you
clean your firearm every time it is used. A lot of people donít realise
that a clean firearm leads to a more accurate shot, therefore
better a group when firing your firearm!
If you follow these basic
steps you should experience no problems due to an unclean firearm !
Thank You and Good Shooting!
