    A small magnetic tray helps for small parts like pins, screws, etc.

    I'm gonna have to bite the bullet. I hate working with small pieces. Always afraid of losing something or fucking it up.

    Too late. I already own way too much not-easy-to-clean stuff lol

    I appreciate the help here. Been out of this for way too long. Checking out my guns and they're pretty dirty. Gonna probably have to set up shop this weekend for cleaning and postpone the range trip a week. trying to grab what I need now on amazon prime.

    Not ideally but the only option with some firearms. There are rod guides to minimize muzzle damage on rifles. Using a fiberglass rod instead of a metal one helps too.

    Not familiar with it. I generally stick to Ballistol for general cleaning and rust prevention, Hoppe’s 9 for when I’m using particularly “dirty” ammo. Oils/greases: Lucas extreme duty oil and grease, Wilson Combat universal oil/oil, Lubriplate, and Kroil.

    In through chamber out the muzzle.

    For shotgun I use a one piece fiberglass rod for the brush and a wood dowel for the patch. It saves time of swopping rod attachments or needing two rods.

    The follower of 590’s is usually plastic, but the spring is probably rusted and not able to move freely in the mag tube, or there can possibly be dust, carbon, or resinified oil in the tube binding up the follower or spring. The receiver is aluminum, just give it a wipe out of CLP and look for any oil that got sticky. All the other guts; shell elevator, cartridge stop/interruptor, fire control group, pins, and action rods (the two arms on the pump) are carbon steel, so clean those off throughly and apply a thin coat of quality CLP......avoid WD40 at all costs on guns.

    It's odd but I had no issues with it when I ran the snap caps through it. Had the pump changed and now I have the issue. Could be coincidence. But either way it's out of my hands for the next week. Gonna head to Amazon and grab some tools and try to clean my GSG and Hi-point as best I can. Any suggestions on a bore snake vs. a rod?

    P.S. You can learn how to completely disassemble and reassemble a Mossberg 500/590 in about 15-20 minutes of your time from YouTube videos. There are a few good ones on there.
