I'm wire brushing the barrel and wiping it out with hope's #9 cleaner and oil inside and all exposed metal. My main question is what are y'all cleaning the outside with and oiling? Just don't want to have cleaner Peel off camo or oil seep under and lift off camo. . This is my first camo covered gun and always hunted a blued gun. Any advise is appreciated.
I have had camo guns before but like you, I wanted to make sure that I didn't do anything to hurt the camo on the A400. So I called Beretta directly and asked them. They told me that you can use Breakfree directly on the camo. Breakfree is what I use and specifically asked about. I assume that if Breakfree is fine, then #9 is as well.
I also asked about some gunk in the trigger assembly in my old Silver Mallard that I was having a hard time getting fully cleaned out. They recommended that you take the trigger assembly out and soak / clean it in mineral spirits. Then, dry / wipe off, apply some oil, and you are good to go. Since the trigger assembly for the A400 is similar to a degree to the Silver Mallards, that should work for the A400 as well. Of course none of us new A400 owners need to worry about that for a LONG time but just something to keep in mind.
Some people just need a high-five.
