Owning a firearm comes with the responsibility of cleaning and maintaining each one of your guns. When you fire a round, carbon, lead, copper (and possibly plastic for shotguns) residue are left in the barrel, chamber and action. As this residue builds up, it can jam the bullets or cause dangerous malfunctions. Moisture from the weather, sweat, tears, etc. can also result in rust damage which will not allow your firearm to operate properly. In order to avoid potentially lethal mishaps, you should talk to your gunsmith about regular cleaning and maintenance procedures. You always want your firearm to operate safely and reliably each and every round. Consistent cleaning and maintenance will also improve the longevity of your firearm. Always clean your firearm in a well ventilated area, away from any hazards. Be sure the gun is unloaded and not pointed at anyone before you begin. Contact Ambrose Armory to schedule a cleaning today!
