How to Properly Clean a Firearm

Hey Guys, so i made this video to demonstrate how to field clean a firearm, after going to the range or monthly maintenance. this is the most asked question i had in my shop. how do i clean my firearm and what products and procedure should i use. so i figured id make this video to help some of you out. now this is a basic cleaning, i still recommend you do a detail cleaning once a year where the firearms is completely disassembled to the last spring and cleaned thoroughly, lubricate, and inspected for wear. if you are not comfortable tearing your firearm apart to that extent. take it to your local gunsmith to have it done, the service is not that expensive. I hope you guys enjoy the video, and please hit the subscribe button to keep up to date on all new videos i put out. Thank You guys for all the support.

That is a very good video for pistol cleaning. Only difference I do is that I was taught to grease the sliding parts(ie rails) and oil the parts that pivot. Grease just seems to remain in place longer than oil, but use it sparingly.

Helpful suggestions as this, concerning maintenance, keep us gun enthusiasts buying more containers of solvents & oils.
Better than buying parts & newer guns more often.
