WARNING: ENSURE THAT YOUR FIREARM IS UNLOADED BEFORE BEGINNING TO CLEAN IT.
At the end of the day of shooting/hunting, clean and lubricate the shotgun.
• Disassemble the shotgun.
• Clean the bores with care by passing a cleaning rod with a cotton patch coated with a high-quality gun oil to remove combustion residues. Also include the
chambers in your cleaning operation.
• Do not forget to clean choke tubes and choke seats in the muzzle. Failure to clean these areas will result in the inability to remove the choke from the barrel
and severe damage to the muzzle. If a choke tube becomes tight in the muzzle,this is an indication that the thread requires cleaning.
• Run a clean dry patch through the bores to remove oil residues.
• Lightly oil the inside of the barrels with a clean cotton patch coated in high quality gun oil.
• Clean with care the external surfaces of the shotgun to remove any trace of dirt, sweat and fingerprints.
• Make sure you do not touch the metal parts while you are putting your shotgun back into its place of storage. Always follow the instructions provided with your gun cleaner and gun lubricant.
Whenever your firearm has been exposed to sand, dust, extreme humidity water or other adverse conditions, it must be cleaned and lubricated. After an intensive period of use, check the operation of the bolt assembly and if necessary, clean and lubricate it using suitable gun oil. If your firearm seats used in a cold climate, be sure to use an oil of an appropriate weight so that it will not congeal in cold temperatures.
NEVER MANIPULATE, ADJUST OR CHANGE ANY OF THE INTERNAL COMPONENTS OF YOUR FIREARM. ANY MAINTENANCE, ADJUSTMENT OR SERVICE NOT SPECIFIED IN THIS MANUAL MAY AFFECT THE SAFETY AND RELIABILITY OF YOUR FIREARM AND MUST BE PERFORMED BY AN AUTHORIZED GUN-SMITH USING GENUINE FACTORY PARTS. IF YOU DO OTHERWISE, IMPROPER FUNCTIONING OF YOUR FIREARM MAY OCCUR AND SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH MAY RESULT.
When storing, do not encase the shotgun in anything that will attract or hold moisture, for example; leather or heavy cloth. Also, do not store shotguns with a plug inserted in the barrel for this can be a contributing factor to moisture accumulation. If the shotgun is to be stored for an extended period, the bore, chamber and internal surfaces should be oiled with a high-quality lubricating oil preservative intended for firearms. The external parts; receiver, bolt and barrel should be coated witth an anti-rust oil.
