Some metal parts of your new Model 1300 have been coated at the factory with a rust preventative compound. Before using your Model 1300, clean the anti-rust compound from the inside of the barrel, receiver, breech bolt mechanism and the action/chamber areas. A high quality, lightweight gun oil should be used to remove this compound and to give your new gun its first lubrication. Clean the barrel using a cleaning rod and patch as explained under "Cleaning and Maintenance Suggestions" found on page 25 in this owner's manual. First lubrication suggestions are outlined below.
Before beginning assembly of your Model 1300 you should first wipe the mechanism clean and apply a few drops of quality oil on the indicated surfaces (Figure 2).
