I just wanted to thank everyone that has posted information here. After reading everything on this site I had a better idea of what to do when buying the gun. After deciding which one I wanted I had the guy behind the counter try all the choke tubes in the barrel before I would buy it. I could not believe all the metal shavings left on those choke tubes. After wiping them all down and re-lubing them, they all went in easily by hand. When I got it home I immediately dissassembled it and started to clean it, so now for some of my questions:
1. Should I wipe down everything including the feed tube and spring that is on it?
2.If I do wipe this down what is an appropriate lube to use? All I have is Hoppes #9 lubricating oil, will this work?
3. When I pushed out the pin holding the trigger assembly in place I found that the pin and the holes were extremely rusty. After cleaning I don't think it is a problem but why would it be so rusty?
4. And lastly how much lube should I have on this thing when I am done? Right now all the parts have the oil on and then I wiped it off lightly, will this suffice?
Thanks in advance to those that reply
