If you own a Beretta A400, it is important to know how to clean the firearm properly so that it will continue to operate smoothly without any issues. There are a few steps that should be taken when cleaning this type of weapon.
The first thing you need to do before getting started with your Beretta’s cleaning process is make sure the gun is unloaded and point in a safe direction. You don’t want to hurt yourself or someone else while accidentally cleaning a loaded weapon.
- Take your shotgun apart, split into three pieces. Eliminate the forend and barrel from the stock.
- By means of a cleaning rod, push a patch or any paper towel to every barrel (wooden end first) to clean any significant debris or residual moisture.
- Next, choose an appropriately sized wire brush and then thoroughly clean the barrel, pushing with the cleaning pole, to eliminate any residue. Then run a new cleaning patch through the barrels again to guarantee any extra residue was eliminated.
- Apply a little bit of gun oil to some other cleaning patch or fabric and push both barrels, leaving a thin coating of oil indoors to prevent rusting.
- Use an old toothbrush to clean each side of the rib between the barrels, where grime can frequently assemble. Apply a little bit of gun oil using a fabric as rust may also grow here.
- Gun oil may also be put on the extractors, knuckle, cross-pin and bending bolt since these could have experienced a good amount of wear. Avoid using an excessive amount of oil by simply applying sparingly, since this may cause malfunctions
Now, you can reassemble your rifle, then having a soft cloth and a little bit of oil, lightly wipe the complete outside of this gun to eliminate any external grime and also to give it a more shiny finish.
