iiiimiiiiiimiiimmimmiiiiimiiiiimiiiMiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiim Fishing Report By DAVID HERRELL Outdoors Writer There are two ways to ruin a me gun neglect it or baby it lo death One hunter I know brags that he hasnt cleaned his Marlm lever action ride the day he bought it I believe him Theres hardlv a of rifling left in the barrel All traces of blueing have long since worn off and the stock looks like a piece of firewood The are so loose they rattle The exterior finish is marred b rust The gun shoots so poorlv I doubt if you could hit a barn wall from the inside He keeps it in the trunk of his car along with a tool box and the spare tire To this man a gun is nothing more than a piece of equipment to be used and abused until it no longer func tions and then to tv discarded Another hunter I know has cleaning guns as his hobby He has virtually polished the blueing from the metal The hardwood stock has had so mam applications of oil it Is beginning to soften Years of squirting WD40 into crevice ami orifice has left a gummv layer of residue The actions are so clogged with muck I doubt if they would fire in freezing weather For every gun that wears out a thousand are ruined ill treatment Modem firearms are built from the finest materials in ordnance history and will last more than one lifetime if properly cared for Good gun care begins with a proper cleaning kit It should include the following Jointed or onepiece steel rod Brass brushes and felt balls to H the arious guages and calibers BoUleof Hoppes solvent lid toothbrush Sihcone impregnated cloth Cotton patches cut lo various sues Screwdrivers ground to lit screw heads Tan of light machine oil such as 3 in 1 Kvery gun Is composed of three components the bar rei the trigger txill assembly and the stock or handle ianfor each of these components call for Us own technique The barrel of a gun needs no special care since it is cleaned and oiled each time it is loaded However the development of the metal cartridge and breech loading guns was a real txxm to the hunter but it also presented him with some special headaches For ample the first primers were made of of mer cury and when fired left deposits of salts in the barrel The only way lo remove these salts was to pour boiling w aler dow n the barrel and apply a coaling of oil Modern noncorrosive primers and smokeless powders have greatly simplified the hunters cleaning chores To clean the barrel just run a clean cotton patch through in one slow motion screw a wire brush to the dip H in Hoppes solvent and scrub am lead AH Here is the

all there is to it To clean a bolt action first remove the scrub the ace and extractor with an old toothbrush dipped in Hoppes then wipe the twit exterior and reciever with a sihcone cloth Do not squirt oil into the interior of the bolt The gook w ill eventuallv gum up and cause problems For the lever pump or automatic gun open the breech scrub the twit face with the toothbrush and wipe out the accessable areas with a sihcone cloth don t squirt oil into the reciever area Clean and protect the stock as you would any fine piece of furniture Wipe with a moist cloth and apply a light coat of wax Never put gun oil on a stmk and especially not on the unfinished checkering oil softens wood and causes premature wear Try as we mav to be careful it seems that stocks are always picking up dents and scratches A method of removing dents that sometimes works is to cover the area with a damp cloth and apply a warm iron for a few minutes It the dent is not tot severe the combination of heat and moisture will cause the wood fibers to swell and the dent will disappear Follow with a coat of wax Treat scratches as would or any furniture The that hold a gun together will eventuallv work IOOMPeriodically go over them with a screwdriver that has been ground to fit the heads The screws that hold the scope mount should first be dipped in LocTite and then tightened H vou must store a gun in a standing position make sure you do so with the pointing down Fven the lightest coaling of oil in the barrel will eventually run down into the bolt and foul the action Neglected and poorly earedtor guns are ugly unreliable and often unsafe A firearm will give a lifetime of functional and esthetic pleasure if it is treated like the fine instrument it is WANTED lostconscious homeowners
