    Hi guys,

    I have a quick question about a Remington 7600 pump rifle one of my buddies has that he wants me to clean for him. What is the proper way to clean a pump action rifle (bore in particular)? I have never cleaned a pump action rifle before so want to make sure I know what I'm doing before I tackle it.

    I'd blow it out good with Berryman's Carburetor cleaner to get the carbon and petroleum distillates out and then use the Gunslick Foaming Bore Cleaner on it.

    Repeat until you see no color coming out.

    I set them barrel end down resting on a folded up paper towel. Then squirt it in from the chamber end.

    I blow it out with the carburetor cleaner between GFBC treatments. I takes about an hour or to for the GFBC to do it's thing so you can get quite a few treatments done in a couple of days.

    You'll be amazed at what comes out.

    When it runs clear it's clean.

    I used to have a 760...many moons ago of course. Just have to be careful and go at it from the muzzle...use a rod that wont scratch and when you run the patch all the way thru have some rags in the action ( opened) and catch the patch and any "fluids" you are using.

    I picked u some cleaner the other week I saw advertised...and Im a loving it. You soak a patch and I mean dripping wet....run it slowly thru the bore and remove.
    Wait 5 minutes to all night...then start running dry patches thru it. You can also but DONT HAVE TO ...use a brush in the bore in the meantime...

    when patches come out clean you are done...give it a light coat of oil
