TO CLEAN THE MODEL 60 — dirt and fouling should be periodically removed from the bolt, extractors, and other operating parts. This should be done with a tooth brush soaked in Nitro solvent (included in J. C. Higgins Cleaning Kits). Following this, all moving parts should be wiped dry and oiled lightly.
Exclusive use of J. C. Higgins ammunition practically eliminates any need for barrel cleaning. Should powder residue or any dirt accumulate in the barrel, however, it can easily be removed.
Open the action, rest the heel of the stock on the floor and hold the gun barrel near the muzzle with the left hand. Push a brass cleaning brush soaked in Nitro solvent through the muzzle end, and work it up and down throughout the entire length of the bore. Follow this by wiping the bore with clean patches until the last one comes out unsoiled. A light protective film of oil may be applied with a patch if desired.
A J. C. Higgins Shotgun Cleaning Kit (available at any Sears Store or from the catalog) includes all of the necessary items for easy cleaning of your shotgun.
