Cleaning and Lubrication Tips from NSSF

NSSF is producing some interesting videos helping people maintain their firearms. This is one of them:


It’s a great service, I think, because a common mistake gun owners make is over-lubricating their guns. I will admit, when I was a beginner gun owner, I used WD-40 to lubricate a gun, which catches fire once it gets hot enough. One advantage to having a Kalashnikov as your first gun is it’ll take pretty much all the abuse you can throw at it with beginner mistakes.

  1. I handled an old S&W yesterday chambered in .32 S&W Long. Someone had used WD40 on it at one time. It was so gunked up the cylinder would hardly move. The owner took the grips off and sank it in some break-free.

    I don’t know if that will clean it up. It was in really bad shape with all the gunk in it.
