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


Alright, so here we are. We got everything
right here, it?s been soaking in the break free. We’ve got everything wiped down with
the break free and we’ve been letting it sit about most of the day now and what we’re ready
to do is really get in here and scrub. The break free has been able to do its thing and
now we’re going to do our thing with it. Now, here’s our guide rod and my spring is back
on the rod and what I like to do is I like to scrub a little bit of this spring while
it?s on the guide rod. And you see right here, I’ve got four brushes here. I’ve two nylon
brushes, a real light steel brush and a real light brass brush. Now, I use the brass brush
on real light areas that are blued that can be shown to the eye. I use the steel brush
on areas that like the bolt face where I can really get in and I can scrub it real good
and the front ramp. And I use these nylon brushes mostly for the outside and for other
areas that I can’t get these bigger brushes into. But we’re going to start here and I’m
going to take my little steel brush here and I’m just going to work this around and I’m
just going to kind of spin this rod and spring in a clockwise motion and I’m just going to
move back and forth.
