GUN GUYS!!! I need to clean a Marlin .22????

My 76 Year old grandpa has a .22 LR marlin lever action and in his age forgot to clean it in the past and just the other day we got it out to shoot targets and a shell stuck in the chamber due to build-up in the chamber we got the shell out but wat can we use to clean this gun without pulling it all apart do they make something to "eat" away corroded gun powder???? besides Hoppes powder solvent needs something stronger then that
its a model 39A

Most any solvent will do the job... it just may take some time, and multiple applications.

Hoppes and other companies make some solvents that are just for cleaning lead and copper build up out of the chamber and the rifling in the barrell. Use with a good barrell brush after you have cleaned the barrell clean with the regular powder/nitro solvent and the patches are coming out clean.

Don't forget to clean the solvent out...and oil the barrell and chamber with a lightly oiled patch when you are done. It helps protect your barrell from corosion.

Even a good cleaning kit will need it's barrell brush replaced after repeated use. I prefer a stainless steel brush over the brass ones.

If you go for a stronger solvent... it may harm the finish on some parts of your firearm, if your not careful with it. Some will eat platic and ruin the finish on wood.

Cleaning out the headspace (where the rim of the catridge seats against the face of the barrell) for the rim of the .22 cartridge on the back of the barrell can be a real pain...if your not comfortable/or can't dis-assemble the rifle.Getting into those nooks and cranies can be time consuming. Q-tips and a little pointy tool made out of wood or plastic help. A toothpick will work okay...but something bigger is easier to work with. Don't use a steel pick...if you can help it. But I do have a dental pick in my gun cleaning kit...and use it carefully sometimes. If you guys have used some higher grade .22lr ammo...some manufacturers put a light coat of wax over the bullet to assist in chambering the rounds. The wax can build up a bit, and mixed in with old powder...can get fairly hard.

Apply the solvent carefully...avoid getting it on any wood. Sometimes I apply with the q-tips....let it soak for a while...clean...re-apply more solvent...let it soak in....clean...repeat as needed.

Hope that helps.

Have fun with Gramps!

Look out for those frothing at the mouth rabbid monster zombie empty pop cans!
