  1. Cleaning Rod Stuck in .22 S&W MP15

    Rimfire Central
    Today I had the joy of getting my cleaning rod stuck in my barrel with the copper brush attachment. I tried hammering through but ultimately broke the rod with only about 1" sticking out, so now I have it soaking in WD-40 and pray to God I can pull it out tomorrow with some plyers. My main...
  2. Brass Scratching when chambering a round in Sig P365

    General Gun Discussion
    Hello everyone, I am a fairly new gun owner and I just ran into a problem with my Sig P365 that I have been unable to find information about. I recently cleaned and lubed my P365 and at the end of my function check I loaded a mag and racked the slide repeatedly in order to cycle through my ammo...
  3. What's your favorite lube?

    General Gun Discussion
    I'm looking to try different gun lubes, looking for something that keeps things running smooth and lasts a good period of time once applied. I heard some good things about synthetic motor oil, but upon further research wasn't so sure.
  4. Fixing the finish on a pistol

    General Gunsmithing
    so my grandfather has a Kahr K9 that he recently got back from someone he sold it to, and it was returned in less than optimum condition. Seeing as he likes to keep them immaculate, having several small scratches on the finish of a firearm drives him crazy. What do y’all use to maintain or...
  5. Rusty old Winchester 120, is there anything I can do?

    General Gunsmithing
    So a while back a buddy of mine was cleaning house and sold me his old Winchester 120. The inside of barrel, action, and internals are all fine and dandy but there's a lot of surface corrosion on the outside and I was wondering what I could do (if anything) to clean the gun up a little, or just...
  6. AK-47 Cleaning help

    General Gun Discussion
    Hello All! I need help cleaning my gun... Last weekend we went shooting and I let a first timer shoot the AK. He dropped the gun into the dirt barrel first. We stopped using the gun until we clean it for safety. My issue is this. There is a round in the chamber. Can I dissassemble the gun...
  7. Cleaning Kit Recommendations???

    Firearm Accessories
    Heyo people! I couldn't find exactly where to put this, but the General Gun Discussion seems the best place for it. I have a Mossberg Model 46M(b) that I'm trying to fix, and it has been over 20 years since it was last cleaned. Yesterday (9/16) I took most of it apart and wiped it clean with...
  8. Cleaning my SR22

    Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    I'm hoping someone here can give me some solid guidance. I recently purchased a Ruger SR22 and have been researching cleaners etc. My specific question relates to Remington's Brite Bore product. Is this an evaporating product? and is it safe to spray into the firing pin area in the slide...
  9. Wanted: NW Missouri professional to restore antique guns

    General Gunsmithing
    We just moved to NW Missouri and was given a handful of antique guns (shotguns, rifles and revolver). I am looking for an expert in NW Missouri region to restore these guns. They haven't been used for decades so they need professional TLC. Thanks.
  10. Mark 3 question- re-assembly apparently not the reverse of disassembly

    Rimfire Central
    So I'm trying (and failing) to re-assemble my Mark 3 after its first cleaning. I get 3/4 of the way thru this reassembly video below, and when I go to slide the "peg" of the grip frame assembly thru the hole in the bolt, the "peg" will not go all the way thru. Any ideas? I will post a picture...
