New_Texan Posted March 10, 2009 Share Posted March 10, 2009 Forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere... I've never cleaned a gun... and I haven't cleaned my new M4 yet. (I shot it over the weekend, your suppose to clean after each use, correct?). My wife has a 9mm Sig pistol that her dad bought for her to go to college with. She "kinda knows" how to clean a pistol, although she hasn't shot her pistol in a few years! She has a "rifle" cleaning kit with push rods, pads and a brass looking brush as well as 3 cleaning solutions (one of which is oil.. the others are detergents?). She apparently needed to clean her pistol, went to the local store, but all they had was this particular kit... they said it was basically the same kit that you'd buy for a pistol (other than the long push rods). So... here's my question... can I use this stuff? The brass brush seems to narrow in diameter as it does not touch all surfaces of the barrel (if I were to push it through the barrel, which I have not done!). Do I need a new brass brush to "fit" my M4? Also, do I need to just lube with the Benelli oil that came with the gun or can I use this other stuff too?
