                                                        Cleaning Instructions

Run 2 or 3 wet patches with a good bore cleaner through the barrel.  Then use a brass brush and wet patch again.  When sighting in, shoot 5, clean 5 for 20 rounds.  Always leave a coating of oil in bore when you are finished shooting to prevent rust. The barrel should be thoroughly dried before shooting.  If Sweets is used, do not leave in barrel more than 5 minutes.  Do not mix Sweets with any other cleaner.

Do not use stainless steel brushes or abrasive cleaners in barrel.
