Shotgun Cleaning Kit | Air Rifle Cleaning Kits - Derek Lee Gunsmiths
If you own an air rifle, shotgun or pistol, you will need a gun cleaning kit. After shooting at the range or hunting, there will be powder or other residue left in the gun.
If this residue is not cleaned out on a regular basis, it can corrode the inside of the gun, causing inaccurate firing and possible damage. It is not hard to clean, or takes much time. A gun cleaning kit will make this simple maintenance, quick and easy.
A shotgun, rifle or pistol is a valuable investment that you will want to take proper care of for long term, trouble-free use. A dirty gun will corrode the inside of the barrel and mechanisms, and cause faulty or poor performance.
If left unchecked, it can cause serious damage to the gun, and substantially decrease its value. If used daily, a gun should be cleaned weekly. If it is only used occasionally and stored for long periods, it needs to be cleaned after you are finished shooting with it, before storing.
An air rifle cleaning kit is used to clean an air rifle or pellet gun. It will clean a rifle as well as a pistol. It contains rods, brushes, swabs or mops. Also a pellet remover for removing lodged pellets or BB's.
A shotgun cleaning kit is used to clean bigger bore barrels. Like a 12 gauge, 410 gauge, or other sizes. The kit comes with rods, swabs, and brushes. It is especially important to clean shotguns regularly. They leave a lot of residue in the barrel due to the amount of powder being fired.
A shotgun cleaning kit or an air rifle cleaning kit is absolutely necessary for the proper maintenance and care of your firearm. Not only will it keep it in top condition, it will insure safe operation and years of trouble free use.
Some kits come with gun oil, some do not. If it doesn't, be sure to pick up some. Be sure to check the kit you are planning to purchase to see if it is the proper one for your particular gun and gauge.
