Cleaning The M92

Postby Czechbikr » 15 Dec 2019 09

Brand new 357 and I'm in deep love already. I don't think it's just an infatuation as I've chased this babe for a long time. I was surprised that the lifter had a grainy, pebbled surface and thought that could be an issue. It ran everything I fed it just fine. I don't really feel a need to detail strip the rifle to slick it up as the functioning it just fine for what I intend for it at this time, being just a range gun. What do owners do to clean them without breaking them down?

I use a pull through like the Viper or the cable style like Remington sells I particularly like the Remington swoobs. They are the orange rubbery things that fit tight in the bore and chamber and do a good job of cleaning after a pull through brush.

As a last resort I've used a brass muzzle guide and cleaned from the front end.

I don't have a problem with cleaning a rifle from the muzzle, I've been shooting leverguns 51 years now and haven't hurt one yet. I always use a brass muzzle guide. To prevent debris from being pushed back into the action, I start by using a pull-through type cleaner. My favorite has become the PatchWorm. That system introduced me to the VFG product line, and I used the Super Intensive Wool Pelts for most of my cleaning needs. I purchase them through Buffalo Arms.

I got mine a lot of years ago from a gun show vendor that carried Dewy cleaning rods and accessories. I also got a stop that keeps the rod from banging into the bolt face.

You can also make a muzzle guide by cutting down a .223 or an appropriately size casing for the bore and put your cleaning rod through it with the mouth of the casing in the barrel. It depends on the diameter of the rod and the case mouth as to how much play there is.

Hey, that's neat idea! I've done a similar thing for my .22 rimfire cleaning rod, cutting down a .17 HMR case for a muzzle guide and using a .17 caliber rod. I hadn't thought of using a .223 case for my larger rod.

I checked at the Dewey web site and they still make the brass rod guide that I have. If you go there search using muzzle as you key word. Good luck
