We broke firearm cleaning down into three easy steps to take some of the guesswork out of how to get the maximum results out of your firearms. The Shooter’s Choice Pro-Care System walks you through the 3 essential gun cleaning steps.
Step One: start with the clean.
Clean and remove fouling build-up from the bore with a bore cleaner using a quality phosphor bronze brush. After cleaning the bore, the action needs to be cleaned/degreased. Apply a small amount of bore cleaner of your choice. Using a nylon bristle utility brush, gently scrub the parts to loosen residue from all areas of the action, receiver and trigger assembly. Spray the action cleaner/degreaser on the action to flush away solvent, fouling, old lubricant and residue.
TIP #1: Remove powder and plastic wad residue with the Shotgun and Choke Tube Cleaner. Also effective at removing plastic and carbon residue from sabot ammunition of inline muzzleloaders.
TIP #2: For stubborn jobs, such as heavy copper build-up, use our Copper Remover after first using the MC-7 Bore Cleaner or MC-7 Extra Strength Bore Cleaner. For heavy lead build-up, we recommend using our Lead Remover solvent.
TIP #3: Although all of our degreasers perform the same job, you’ll want to use our Polymer Safe Quick Scrub for firearms that have synthetic/ polymer stocks, frames, receivers, parts, etc.
TIP #4: Our Quick Scrub III is very effective but if not used as directed could be harmful to painted surfaces, plastics, polymers and wood surfaces.
