Dear members,

Many PG members got the motivation for buying MP 153 by reading the comments of Experts like Sir 12 Guage etc. I'm one of those new buyer of Baikal MP-153.

I've been using DBBL for years and know the cleaning method, but my new russian tank is bit complicated to clean. I've been oiling the complete gun from last 3 months but it seems that oil is causing carbon layers on some parts of gun.

Experts are kindly requested to please indicate which parts to be cleaned and which suppose to be oiled.

@ 12 GUAGE: Sir your kind advise is requested particularly.

I guess this thread will help new users of Baikal MP 153.

Regards,

thanks sir. im pretty sure that your advices will become helping hands for fast growing users of MP-153.
I fired almost 300 shells with my gun during past 3 months, receiver having a thin layer of black carbon and some minor stains in barrel as well. i use WD40 for cleaning and and un-named lubricant from pak army for oiling.
your kind suggestions in this regard will be highly appreciated sir.

@the gunner, your choice of cleaner is not good. Wait for 12gauge's post. And you need to be less generous when applying oil to the gun.

@hunter468, 12gauge must be busy in writing baikal mp 153 cleaning manual.

You need to clean your gun with a carbon solvent. Carbon solvent can range from kerosene (if we start from the very basics) or it can be EDs red cleaning solution.
Field strip your gun and clean it with the carbon solvent. Reassembly it and lightly coat the moving parts with some lubricant.

the manual would be perfect if the reasons of not using wd 40 are also added to it. regards

@dropofdew, wd40 is nothing but a water dispensing (WD) solution. Its only meant to remove moisture from components. It is not meant for gun cleaning in normal circumstances. Well good to use on a wet gun, but not otherwise.

no doubt manual is useful but it just introduces ur firearm to u only . there are alot of things that we learn through experience by using the arm in our local atmosphere and that manual wont tell or teach us. russia, where mp 153 is built, has one of the harshest cold weathers in the world whereas i have seen the gun being used in sibbi, jacobabad , larkana , kamber and other parts which fall in the category of hottest spots on the globe. here we need the guidance of seniors like brother12 gauge , as through them we would know the things that we may take years to learn otherwise

@Riz Bro,
I have been a proven bad man as far as guns maintenance and cleaning is concerned. I am not a mechanic for all guns but for those which are under my use.
Luckily I also have black tank MP-153 and the day I bought this gun I disassemble it and re-assembled after an hour of reaching home. Now it takes less than a minute for both processes. There’s a very good clip available at YouTube if you want to go in detail. Its easiest weapon as far as its maintenance is concerned.
However, I would like to recommend don’t oil your gun so frequently until and unless you feel its dry or there’s some friction in any part. Use clean dry cotton cloth after each use, it will serve the purpose. Extra lubrication is more damaging than anything else.
If you need any query regarding any part please feel free to ask.

Check the Youtube to learn disassemble of Semiauto shotgun 12ga. Then re-assembled it after cleaning. WD-40 is fine, but according to me use Machine Oil you can easily buy from any general store. Its thick oil but believe me its best for inner mechanism of any semiauto. This oil is 100% lubricated & save the internal parts of semiauto while working is any condtion.

WD40 damges gun bluing, for sure, please be careful.

Please wipe off any cleaning solvent after use with a dry piece of cotton. The solvent would be harmless.

+1
one can also confirm it from the owners manual of baikal mp 153 and other shotguns.excessive contact of solvents can fade the bluing/browning of a weapon.
