shotgunNoob Posted January 30, 2009 Share Posted January 30, 2009 (edited) I am currently in the process of setting up a new gunlock/rack (Santa Cruz) for my Benelli SNT. My first thought was to set this thing up horizonatally, but that has gone by the wayside for now. Second thought was to store it muzzle up (with the butt of the gun roughly 3' or so off the ground). Im thinking that the usual worries of oil "damage" the buttstock would not apply here given the synthetic nature of this gun. Also, I dont believe much lube is needed to keep this gun operational and in good condition (from what I hear). Therefore, I wouldnt be quite as concerned about lube leaking down into the action. In addition, I would be laying a small "breathable" cloth (similar to a polishing cloth) over the end of the barrel, in order to minimize dust accumulation and/or bugs. However, per another forum, I have been told numerous times that muzzle down is the way to go. Now, the only way I would be able to accomplish muzzle down storage with the Santa Cruz setup would be to purchase one of their muzzle plugs. I just dont feel comfortable plugging up the end of the barrel, based on those who propose this is just a bad idea. Anyway, I was just curious to find out what others here thought about all of this. Thanks. Edited January 30, 2009 by shotgunNoob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
