Rifle Cleaning

Hello all,

Could some one remind me of what I need to get to clean my rifle? I can remember turks head and a copper wire brush but I can't remember the rest. I also don't know where the best place would be to get such things?

Finally Jerry what is the oil that you use on your rifle?

Thanks for any help.

Step 1, Fire your gun, then...
Step 2, Lend your gun to someone to fire.
Step 3, Get them to clean it.
Step 4, Job done.

Hi Ben.

You'll need cleaning rods, jag {for the cloth}, bronze brush, Turks head, 4x2 {cloth}, gun oil, gun grease, black powder solvent, wire wool.

I use and I think most of us use West Point Sutlers {Albion Small Arms}, they provide a good mail order sevice and have always given the 2/95th a good deal. http://www.westpointalbionsmallarms.co.uk/

Hope this helps.

You should have followed my example - borrow a Rifle - strip it down -  break it - and nobody asks ever asks you to clean it again - simples!

And if you want to assemble a period cleaning kit, and acquire the necessary method, see the research archive for some hints.

Argh yes I will have to email Iain about that as my access privileges haven't been changed yet. Thanks for reminding me.
