Gun Cleaning: The Manual

Each gun is different. Because of this fact, there is no one "right" way to clean a firearm. So how can you know the best way? The answer to this question is very simple: read the manual. Your manual is the best guide in terms of information when it comes to cleaning your gun, as it will be geared specifically toward that make and model. For example, subcompact handguns and rifles may not require the exact same kind of maintenance.

If, after reading the manual you are still unclear on something, it may be worthwhile to get in touch with the manufacturer for clarification. Other options include talking with sporting goods stores or consulting other gun enthusiasts. These people can often give you some cautions and tips that will help make things go more smoothly. Even so, the manual that comes with your firearm is the single best resource to use as a guide to cleaning it, and it should have all the information that you need.
