Since the P365 is designed for concealed carry, it’s important to keep it clean and well-lubricated so that it functions properly.

  • To clean your P365, first, make sure that it’s unloaded and remove the magazine.
  • Then use a bore brush to clean the barrel and chamber. Be sure to use solvent on the brush to remove any debris.
  • Next, use a cloth or brush to clean the slide rails and frame.
  • Finally, wipe down the exterior of the gun with a clean cloth.

To lubricate your P365, apply a light layer of oil to the bore, chamber, and slides.

Then apply a small amount of oil to the frame rails and trigger assembly. It’s important not to over-lubricate your gun, so be sure to wipe off any excess before reassembling it.

The Sig Sauer P365 is a great option for concealed carry. It’s small enough to conceal easily but still packs a punch. With proper care and maintenance, your P365 will provide years of reliable service.

The P365 is a striker-fired pistol with a stainless steel slide and barrel. It should be cleaned and lubricated using standard gun cleaning solvents and lubes.

  1. To clean the firearm, first, remove the magazine and make sure that the chamber is clear.
  2. Use a suitable solvent to clean all visible fouling from the firearm.
  3. Dry it off completely before applying a light coat of gun oil to all moving parts.
  4. Reassemble the gun and reinsert the magazine.

To lubricate the firearm, apply a light coat of gun oil to the following areas:

  • The slide rails
  • The barrel hood
  • The inside of the magazine is well
  • The striker assembly (if applicable)

Avoid getting any gun oil on the grip area, as this can make the gun slippery to hold. Wipe away any excess oil before using the gun.

There are a few things you can do to clean your Sig Sauer P365. For light cleaning, some people recommend using a dry cloth or a brush with a mild solvent. You can also use a gun cleaning kit that is specifically designed for pistols.

For more serious cleaning, take the pistol apart and clean all the parts with a solvent. Be sure to dry everything off completely before re-assembling the gun. And finally, be sure to lubricate all the moving parts with a light coating of oil after cleaning.

The most basic method is to use a solvent such as rubbing alcohol or Gunslick Pro Gun Cleaner to dissolve the fouling and then wipe it away with a cloth or brush.

For more in-depth cleaning, you can also disassemble the gun and clean each part separately.

Be sure to check the manufacturer’s instructions for your specific firearm before attempting any type of cleaning.

First, try using a bore brush to clean the barrel. You can also use q-tips and cleaning solvent to clean the interior of the gun.

Make sure to remove all the solvent before firing the weapon again.

Lastly, you can use a lubricant on all moving parts of the gun.
