    mga glock masters paano po ba ang tamang paglilinis ng glock? kailangan ba na totally disassembled sya every use? i usually use lead, mura pero ang hirap nga lang matanggal sa barrel. ok lang ba copper brush panlinis?
     
  2. Yes. In fact the use of stainless bore brushes are discouraged nowadays.

    I'm a big fan of copper or bronze brushes. I feel like the nylon brush that comes with new Glocks are not the best. I also agree with avoiding stainless.

    Soak it with Hoppes #9 to soften the deposits. There will still be stubborn leads there so I used (when I was still using leads) coping saw blade. Make sure you remove the sharp edges and bend one end about 90 degrees. Just like a back scratcher. Polish (1000cc) the end which you will use as scrubber. Good luck.

    Vega,

    Could you post a picture of your "special tool?" I'm interested in it. Hoppes #9 is really a good bore solvent.

    I still have a stainless tornado brush. Should avoid using it on my wife's Taurus?

    Hinde lililinisan ang mga Glock.

    They work better when dirty.

    Hehe

    Seriously though, here's my procedure for routine cleaning -

    1) Disassemble slide and frame
    2) Spray metal parts with Kleenbore Gunk-out and let dry.
    3) Touch metals part with Breakfree CLP.
    4) Put back slide and frame together and wipe-off excess lube.
    5) Done.

    isuzu - I don't have my "special tool" anymore. That was way back in RP when I was still using lead. A dental pick will do but if you can get the plastic one its a lot better.

    Vega,

    My friends used dental picks (that were given by a dentist-shooter) when we were still using single stack 45s with comps to clean the lead out of the comps. I borrowed their picks.:) It was during the late 80's and early 90's, when single stacks, comps and Bo-Mars were the vogue. The picks were effective.

    Stainless is harder than copper which means it can easily scratch the inside of your barrel.

    thanks guys
    after every use i put breakfree clp all over the metal parts of my gun then brush & wipe the oil the next day. i only use the brush included in my glock package coz a friend of mine says that a copper brush might scratch my barrel. malimit marami pa rin natitira lead deposits sa barrel kaya hindi ako nasasatisfy sa paglilinis ko. with regards to the other parts of my gun basta binabrush ko lang and wipe it afterwards.
     
  14. I don't think it will. Buy the good ones like Outer's, Hoppe's, etc

    hehe sorry sa kulit ko po... ano mangyari if you scratch your barrel? (steel barrel ha ;f) ma rust? or will it affect accuracy?
    tnx
     
  17. It will deteriorate in the accuracy department. At least that's what they're saying, the principle being the lands and groves of your barrel will thin out with the continuous scrubbing of metal harder than itself.

    Ersatz - You may know this already but start scrubbing from the chamber end and not the muzzle end. If you start at the muzzle end you might ding the crown and ruin accuracy.
