How to Keep Your Rifle Healthy

“I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready.”how to maintain your rifle

excerpt from the Rifleman’s Creed

We found a good video on how to maintain your rifle.  This touches on a couple points on proper barrel and action cleaning that you don’t hear much about.

* You really need a stationary vise to keep it in place.

* Make sure you get the right size brush for your caliber.

* Use the right amount of oil and run a dry patch through the barrel before you shoot it. Defense type guns run well with a lot of oil. A bolt action rifle with a nice wood stock will need much less oil It will not only make a mess of the rifle and risk poor cold weather performance, you will also ruin the stock – the wood will soak up the oil.

Check out the video and let us know any tips you have for keeping your rifle healthy.
