Unload and field strip firearm according to the manufacturer's instructions. Wipe parts with a rag or quality paper towel. To degrease the gun, rubbing alcohol works. Shake product bottle and remove (and retain) red stopper. Apply FIREClean™ oil to fouled parts. It extracts fouling like you won’t believe. Allow to soak in overnight if possible. Wipe fouling off. Fouling may continue to "weep" out of the metal for a period of days, depending on the porosity of the metal and amount of fouling. Wipe the fouling as it comes out of the metal. You may see machining marks in upper receivers, bolts, etc that have been previously camouflaged by carbon fouling.
Once clean, apply a thin, even coat of FIREClean™ oil over all internal surfaces subject to carbon or friction. Wipe excess off. A cheap 1” paint brush works wonders for large (or hard to access) areas, as do QTips for small crevices.
On parts you wish to fully condition, apply multiple thin layers of FIREClean™ until it is no longer absorbed into metal. The metal should have a "sheen" or "glisten".
Shoot gun, reapply FIREClean™ oil as desired in cleaning / lubrication / conditioning process.
FOR BEST RESULTS WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THE USE OF OTHER OILS, CLEANERS, OR LUBRICANTS ONCE APPLIED.
DO NOT APPLY FIRECLEAN OR OTHER OILS IN FIRING PIN CHANNELS OF SEMI-AUTOMATIC PISTOLS.
Safe for use in bores- run patches through until they are clean and dry.
