Maintenance Tips for a Sig Sauer 226 9mm Gun : Brushing the Barrel of a Sig Sauer 226 9mm Gun


Alright, so here’s our barrel. And we’re just
going to basically do the same thing to the outside of this barrel area. But on the barrel,
I like to use my stiffer nylon brush. I just start here at the top. I just come at a long
sweeping motion. I just kind of work my way around. Make sure that I’m not missing anything
and right inside here in this catch, kind of our barrel lock or lug. Get in here real
good. Even I’ll switch this brush around to a real short stiff brush to really get me
in there and its just a perfect fit for this short nylon brush. Scrub in there real good.
Alright. So we’re going to switch back over to our longer brush. Looking pretty good there.
I’m just going spin around and we’re just going to do the same thing now with the barrel
here. We’re just going to I’m going to long stroke this full length of this four inch
barrel here. Alright, now that we’ve got that all scrubbed up, I’m going to take my light
steel brush and I’m going to scrub lightly across the front of where your round would
go in the battery. Move this out of the way. I just kind of hold up here at the top, give
me a little stability and then I’m just going hold on to this with my hand and just kind
of go back and forth with it. You don’t have to be afraid to really hurt anything. This
is an area of the firearm that can really get dirty. This ramp right here is your loading
ramp. The smoother that is, the less obstructive that is, the smoother your rounds are going
to feed into the firearm. So we’re going to make sure we get that real good. Its looking
real good. Alright, now that we’ve got that all scrubbed up, do a couple more swipes here.
Now that we got that all done, we’re going to set this off to the side with our guide
rod here and we’re just going to move on to the slide real quick.
