Thread: Rifle storage

  1. #1

    Rifle storage

    How does everyone store their rifle. Rifle butt on the floor? read that some stored the other way round to prevent any oils drifting back into the chamber.
    Also, do you store with the bolt attached or not?

    Rifles muzzle up with bolt out, protects the crown that way up. Shotguns muzzle down.

    Barrel up, bolt out and in ammo safe - only 1 rifle, so nothing to mix up!

    if used/dirty - bolt open upright

    however normally I'll run a bore snake through, in which case upright with bolt closed and springs eased

    Muzzle up bolt in ammo elsewhere, I don't oil barrel before storing so no worries with oil running everywhere.

    Always store mine barrel down,just habit from shotguns and oil draining back I guess.
