Then, soak the chamber and bore surface while pushing the rod through the barrel and avoid pulling it back. Permit the cleaning dis-solvable to separate bore fouling for 10-15 min.
Then, use the brush to scrape down the whole dirt in the bore. Use any luster cloth to wipe down the extra dirt on the gun. Now, use a light silicone lubricant for more cleaning and run it through the bore surface so that there is a light coating of gun oil. Clean the outside of the feed incline barrel, barrel hood and barrel drag.
#3. You have to clean and grease up everything other than the barrel of the weapon. To clean the slide, bolt or pump you can use a nylon brush or dry cloth. Spray the solvent from the top, this will wash away the carbon and metal dirt into the drip pan.
