"IF" you have a shotgun cleaning kit (nylon brush), give her a try.Hi can anyone tell me if there is a way to clean the bolt lug recess if you do not have the probeer tools? Non of my locals gun shops seem to have lug recess and chamber cleaning tools. I wanted to order j dewey tools online but they charge 121$ for the cheapest shipping option to where I live. That is 5 times the price of the kit I wanted to buy and I don't want to pay that much for shipping. So if anyone can give me any tips on how to diy it or use existing cleaning rods I'd appreciate it.
Learned something I always thought it was from stiff bolt lift seen a guy one time beat his bolt open with a piece of two by four 3 times in a row because of a primer change. Thanks. DavidCase hardened actions or nitrided actions wont gall. Your standard heat treated actions will. That goes for 700s, Savages, and most customs. But, your exactly right, if you harden the surface or coat it with something like PVD you can pretty much eliminate any chance of galling. Most of the time a gall happens when you force the bolt closed on a tight case. Very rarely does it happen opening the bolt on a hot load.
Thanks for considering it. Yeah they said the cheapest option the can offer me is 121 u$ for shippingThese are about $10 at Dewey, don’t know about shipping to Namibia. I probably have an extra laying around. If I wasn’t having to redo my security clearance, I’d just send you one. They get suspicious about foreign contacts.
Didn't know it wasn't necessary to lube the lugs1. Remove action from stock
2. Remove bolt
3. Remove trigger assembly
4. Soak action 12 hours in Acetone
5. Blow out w/high pressure air
6. Unless you are a rapid fire match shooter, stop lubing lugs. You will never wear them out.
7. If "lube you must", a finger dampened with Mobil One on the rear side of the lugs is all you need.
I have always cleaned my rifles and shotguns after usingI have been using a patch with solvent and I ha e a pick set that has picks at different angles found the one that work best and just smoothed end of because it was sharp and work the patch around then dry it out with another clean patch. And blow it out in case there is patch material in there. I also use a bore scope so I can see if there is anything in there.
