Thread: first clean

  1. #1

    first clean

    yesterday i got a brand new browning t-bolt in .22lr and it says in the book that it comes with an anti-rust coating which needs to be cleaned off before this just a case of cleaning the barrel as i would a centre fire and wiping the bolt with some napier legia spray etc? cheers guys

    as it is a .22 Winchester make some excellent bore cleaners to remove that first coating.
    40gn subsonics!

    that will be the only cleaner you may need in a .22

    I normally use car brake disc cleaner to remove an anti-rust coating.

    You should clean it off,even just a run through with a bronze brush.

    I have been told that it cooks in the rifling and can affect accuracy in the future *allegedly*, I'm not convinced it can cause permanent damage but it doesn't hurt to give a pull through.

    Hmmm surely one cleans any rifle new or not that one has just acquired. Both inside and out just seems to be common sense normal practice but obviously I thought wrong .

    I did indeed end up cleaning it and hopefully within the month I will proceed to make it dirty again :-)

    You need to clean any oils or presserving grease from all barrels or it could result in a ring bulge.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I did clean it in the end I gave it a good few passes with patches and bore solvent and dry patches
