Cleaning question

Postby Trigger81 » Fri Jun 17, 2005 10:55 pm

Hi guys, I'm buying a stoeger Model 2000 and was wondering what kind of cleaning kit i should buy for the action or will the owners manual tell me what to use? Remember guys the Stoeger uses the benelli inertia recoil action so i dont beleive it has a piston assembly or anything...

Can't go wrong with a Hoppes. I usually just use Rem Oil. On the action and shove one of those long blue brush thingies (not a very technical term i know) down ther barrell a couple of times.

This is what i have only in 12g. A couple in and outs with this and your barrel is cleaner than a wistle.

Thanks, But i was talking action wise. Remember with the Stoeger it uses Benelli's inertia recoil design so i dont beleive it has a piston assembly or anything.

Im really sorry i dont mean to sound like a jerk, i miss worded my question.

Shoot some gun scrubber in there and then a little oil and you should be fine.

You don't sound like a jerk at all. I probably am the last person to post on the cleaning of a shotgun question. I rarely clean em.

I just take my bro-inlaws tooth brush (just kiddn, I use an old one!!).

Then I dip it in Hoppes, and give it a good scrubbin! :smile:

this is pretty much all i will do too. Think about picking up a Hoppes Bore Snake for the barrel.2 pulls through and the barrel will be spotless. I never go huntin without mine.

I mentioned the Bore Snake because many times i have accidentally put the muzzle of my gun in the mud or something to that extent and it has needed quick cleaning in the field. Just suggesting something that works for me.

o, i see. If you look down your barrel with it apart, it's not really that dirty on the inside.
