A friend came over to my place asking about the initial cleaning procedure of his newly acquired "Baikal IZH-27 Over and Under Shotgun". I thought why not make a tutorial about it so that other esteemed PG members can also benefit from this exercise.
Here it goes, but first a little disclaimer.

Since we have that out of the way, lets begin. This time however I have decided to try a slightly different approach. instead of writing all the informational material here along with related pictures, let the pictures to do all the talking. if any point needs further explanation, that we'll discuss here on this thread. Kindly do not hesitate in asking any questions.
After this exercise you'll find that your gun will not only function more reliably but also more smoothly. every time I have done this to a new over and under the first thing that I've found that trigger greatly improves. the gritty-ness/creep in the trigger significantly is reduced. the opening and closing seems to become more fluid. in other words, the gun sort of a turns in to swiss watch. everything ticks the way it is supposed to.
