Maintenance Suggestions

You should clam your A-Bolt shotgun whenever it becomes excessively dirty. The barrel should be cleaned and the action wiped clean and oiled after every day of shooting. The correct procedure for claming your A-Bolt shotgun is as follows:

1 BE CERTAIN THE SHOTGUN IS UNLOADED AND THE BOLT AND MAGAZINE HA VE BEEN REMOVED.

KEEP ALL AMMUNITION AWAY FROM THE CLEANING SITE NEVER TEST THE MECHANICAL FUNCTION OF ANY FIREARM WITH LIVE AMMUNITION.

WEAR EYE PROTECTION AT ALL TIMES WHEN PERFORMING MAINTENANCE ON YOUR A-BOLT SHOTGUN.

breaking off. the brush should be pushed completely through the bore before being withdrawn.

5 After fouling has been removed, the bore should be wiped dry. Then pass a slightly oiled patch through the bore, for preservation. A fine, light gun oil like Browning oil is recommended.

6 The interior of the receiver and the bolt should periodically be wiped off with a clean rag. Remove the bolt occasionally and wipe clean. Any dried oil in the receiver area should also be removed. Follow this cleaning with a very light film of oil on working pans. Do not pour large quantities of oil into the action. An excess of oil will run into the wood and causc it to soften or warp.

7 Wipe all exposed metal surfaces with an oiled cloth making sure to wipe die shotgun clean of all finger marks. Finger marks should be removed because they provide a place where moisture can accumulate. Ordinär)' good judgment will, of course, indicate that the metal of the gun should receive a light film of oil any time the shotgun has been exposed to weather or handling.

8 The wood surfaces of your A-Bolt shotgun can also he wiped lightly with Browning oil, or you can apply a quality wood or furniture polish to the stock and forearm. Using one of these methods (not both), will enhance the beauty and durability of your shotgun.
