Understanding Firearm Cleaning and Preservation.

Part Seven

Cleaning Solutions, Copper or Metal Solvents

31. In today’s, 21st Century centre-fire rifle shooting, high velocity with copper jacketed projectiles is the ‘norm’ not the exception. The propellent powder we burn is non-corrosive and the primer residue is non-corrosive, the copper projectile is not like lead which needs a lubrication to stop it from smearing the barrel. So why, many ask, do we have to go to so much trouble in cleaning the barrels. Well at the beginning of the 20th century when we had corrosive powder and corrosive primers, cleaning had to carried out on a religious basis or within days they would be rusty pipes, but there was little problems with copper or metal fouling as the copper jacketed projectiles for the conservatively loaded cartridges of the day, 30/30, 303 British and 22 Hornet were only producing velocities of about …

Cleaning Solutions, Powder Solvents

28. A cleaning solution or what is commonly called a ‘Power Solvent’ is fine for cleaning shotguns and most 22 Rimfire rifles, most of them are similar to Hoppe No 9 Powder solvent. Just soak the cleaning brush and apply to the barrel, it’s ideal for removing the burnt powder, fouling, and build up of wax lubricants, combined with the agitation of the brush it will also remove leading or the build up of plastic left by shotgun wads. Remember do not leave any solvents in barrels for long term, 20 minutes at most, as they are not rust preventatives at all. Solvents dissolve any oil protection that may still be in the barrel and even if they are not corrosive themselves leave the barrel steel completely un-protected. Remove them with dry patches on a Jag and Rod, then …

Cleaning Patches.

24. For many reasons do not use just any old rags to cut up into cleaning patches, other materials do not have the strength or compression especially after they have been washed several times. Sometimes other materials knot up and jam in the barrel, destroying a cleaning rod to save the price of a patch is criminal, destroying the barrel to get the cleaning rod out is an abomination. Extraction of anything stuck in a barrel is always stressful. Old pyjamas and underwear contain salt from sweat. Cleaning patches should be always made from Cantonese (China) Flannel, or what we used to call Four be Two in the Army, as its 4 inches wide with a red line every 2 inches. The flannel should be cut in squares or punched out with a round hole punch.

Brass or Bronze Brushes.

21. The cleaning fluids should be applied to the brush, the brush attached to the cleaning rod and where possible entered from the breech end and pushed all the way through the barrel, push out of the muzzle, then pull them straight back and out of the chamber. They last about 30 cleans and to clean them just wash them out in boiling water. Bronze Brushes are available from most gun dealers in all calibres. Nylon or bristle are poor second choices. If brushes are too small they are useless, if they are too big they either don’t fit or the bronze wires just lay back and do not work. Ideally they should agitate the cleaning solvent and loosen powder carbon, lead and copper fouling which is like a very thin plating which has to be brushed off or …

Part Three

The Equipment

Cleaning Rods

11.The heart and sole of any firearm is the barrel, it is the most difficult part to replace or repair, so much depends upon its accuracy and performance, it dictates that it must deserve the most attention. That is why the most important item of cleaning equipment is a well fitting, one piece cleaning rod, with a thread on one end to interchange with a brush and jag and a revolving handle on the other end.

12. ‘Pull throughs’, are available and they can be used to spread some oil in a barrel and even dry it out before shooting it but they can never clean a barrel properly and predictably break when you need them most. ‘Pull throughs’, would have to be near the top of the list of obstructions that gunsmiths are continually asked to remove from …

When to Clean a Firearm

9. Preservation of firearms depends upon proper attention at the right time, more than frequency of attention. Well stored firearms, even in tropical conditions can survive for more than ten years without damage as long as that initial cleaning and preparation has been carried out with knowledge and attention.

10.If humanly possible, always clean a firearm, especially the barrel, before the evening of the day on which it was fired, because as the temperature cools humidity condenses into a fine layer of moisture which will remain on the dry surfaces inside and outside your barrel.
Cleaning involves a certain amount of time and energy. Mostly at the end of an exhausting days hunting or competition when everyone is tired. Take a little time to plan your preserving operation as it is important that it should be reduced …

Part One

Prelude

The following comments on cleaning and care may seem at first glance rather lengthy. I do hope that you appreciate its importance and read it, in its entirety, but for the person who is only looking for information concerning one aspect, of preserving firearms each aspect is on its own separate page. Having spent many thousands of hours explaining the subject to customers and having nothing in writing to refer them to, I felt the time has come not for a quick 1 to 5 summation, (if anyone wants that, they can read the directions on the label of the cleaning products), but to explain a very important subject which to date has had little serious attention and yet costs us all, so dearly if we ignore it.
In explaining why things have to be done correctly, I hope it inspires and …

There will be an election before that happens and if we do not get this fixed soon, we will be coping it from all States at the COAG Police Ministers meeting in November.

Welcome to the One Hundred and Forth  Edition of the Owen Guns Bulletin. 

Thoughts For The Week.

Price Fluctuations In Firearms.

For many it is hard to understand why the prices of firearms change. Most would rightly presume that when we pay $700 for a new rifle that the price of the steel and the price of the labour to manufacture it are fairly constant, so there should not be drastic changes. Let me say that in the 50 plus years that I have followed firearm prices there is only one overall constant factor. The Prices alway go upwards. When Owen Guns began in 1974 Brand new Stirling Model 20 semi auto rifles in .22 LR were $29. Model 55 Tikka rifles in .222 rem were $120. Remington Model 788 in .222 rem were $110. and Winchester Model 1894 in 30-30 win were $130. Turkish Mauser were $49.00 with 90

Dear Sir.
This is the third time I have written to you 26/04/13 and 12/05/13 on this subject, the first two communications even though they have been polite and used the word ‘please’, have not been answered.
With no information from you or your department, the licenced shooters of Queensland can only assume that the latest Firearm Amnesty that allowed unregistered firearms to be registered to shooters licences

Tue Apr 30, 2013 1:49pm

I normally don’t bother you with a Bulletin  until the end of the month, but because of the  response of the Minister of Police to our  call for the ending of the PTA debacle, due  to the Amnesty example proving that it was  legislatively un necessary, I had to report  this to you, so you could immediately  respond.

On Tuesday the last day of the Queensland  Firearm Amnesty I was invited to make a pre  recording for the ABC News. (See Link above) It was only for  a few minutes and I wanted to establish  that the main point of the Amnesty was the  fact that the

Gun Law Reform September 13, 2012

I read your FAQ and saw that you were a gun advocate, and coincidentally, was
talking about the gun issue with a few people online. I thought to send you what
I wrote (because I want to know what you think) and also to suggest that you
perhaps get in touch with the local media class in university, and see if any of
the media students wanted to make a youtube video talking about the situation,
since youtube is a great tool for educating people, especially interested
youngsters that are the loudest voices in our community. Anyhow, have a read,
and feel free to contact me via email to let me know what you think (I’m curious
as to where the debate is in Australia presently).
