Hi guys
never clean a pistol barrel from its muzzle.coz it can damage its crown.which is part where rifling ends and muzzle end starts this little part is very sensitive for accurcy.
alwayz clean ur semi auto pistol from breach end.this is my 0.2 cents
thanks

IMHO
balazoona is very right
same is for revolvers (5/6/7/10/12shots)
and rifles tooo

use a nylon brush to clean your barrel not the metallic ones it also damages the chrome lining of the bore and chamber

well when we will meet for exchange of clips
may be if you r interested i can teach you to do the same

it is very easy for webley style break open revolvers but a little tricky for colt type swing open cylinders (but i think they can have their barrels removed)

by the way what type of revolver do you have

Its not a center break revolver.

I am not sure what we are exchanging. I have given you information as to whom to contact for clips and 30-06 ammo.

Could Oil be applied 'inside' barrel?

Balazona
16-03-2009, 07:22 PM
if it is chrome lined u dont need oil the barrel.if not then u can apply a little amount of oil to protect barrel from rust.

OK I guess before firing one should clean up the oil inside the barrel? I don't oil inside the NP42 barrel as its chrome lined.

if u apply a very light amount of oil then u dont need to wipe it off before firing.but too much oil inside the barrel suppose to be cleaned first.

NO,it doesnt has chrome lined barrel.but it has cold hammer forged barrel which is much more durable than chrome lining.

In case you prefer or would like to clean through the muzzle, bore guide/muzzle guard is highly recommended. It simply keeps cleaning rod centered to prevent the muzzle damage. Its pretty simple to make if you can't find it at shops. I have made few and they work like a charm.
Good for revolvers in particular.

Then forget to clean ur pistol from muzzle end by any other way.it can damage the crown which will effect the pistol's accuracy.

Hello Shahreyar, sorry for the delayed response. I used a piece of round wood about 1" in diameter, drilled a hole in the middle big enough for cleaning rod to pass through and then tapered wood from one side to the size of rifle's caliber. Cleaning rod should move freely through the bore guide, while cleaning push bore guides tapered end inside the muzzle and hold it there. It will keep the rod in center and protect the muzzle from damage. Here is the example.
