Gun Maintenance: Clean Your Barrel!

stoner barrel junk

I debuted my then new G&P Stoner Mk 23 around 9 months ago and put it through it’s paces at Operation Broken Home. Since then, I’ve been very pleased with it’s range, accuracy, reliability and durability. Lately I’ve noticed a decrease in accuracy but I had assumed it was because lately I’ve been using a mix of some old ammunition. That said, I was heading out to a training exercise this last weekend so to be safe I decided to clean my barrel. I was amazed with how much gunk was inside! Above you can see the 3 dry patches I ran down the barrel and the 2 Q-tips that I used to clean out the feed tube. So the next time you notice that your beloved gun isn’t performing to your liking, you might run a patch down the barrel before you run off and throw more parts at it!

  1. It is especially important in GBBRs to do regular cleaning and maintenance, AEGs have way more ” gunk” tolerances … the gunk Dirtpro found in his stoner, would have crippled my GBBR’s performance.
