To clean a Remington 870 shotgun, you will need:

  • A cleaning kit specifically for shotguns
  • Gun oil
  • Soft cloths or rags
  • Brake cleaner (optional)

1. Disassemble the gun. Check your owner’s manual for specific instructions on how to do this. Some guns can be taken apart with a simple twist of the wrist, while others require the use of a special tool. Make sure all the parts are clean and free of debris before moving on to step 2.

2. Use the cleaning kit to scrub all the internal components of the gun with a soft cloth or rag until they are free of any fouling or grime. Make sure you remove all traces of the old oil before applying new oil.

3. Apply gun oil to all the moving parts of the gun, including the barrel, action, and trigger assembly. Wipe off any excess oil with a clean rag.

4. Reassemble the gun. Check your owner’s manual for specific instructions on how to do this.

5. Use brake cleaner to clean the outside of the gun. This will remove any oil or fingerprints that may be on the surface of the gun. Wipe off the cleaner with a soft cloth or rag.

Your Remington 870 shotgun is now clean and ready for use. Thanks for reading!
