This isn't too detailed - but since it was new and I just sent 255 rounds down-range with it, I figured I better clean it.
It was interesting trying to figure out how one of these comes apart!!
But I watched a video or two and it wasn't too bad.

Here I have the stock removed from the action/barrel out of it:

Image

Here I have the slide removed and firing pin & springs out of it....
I figured this was basically just a Hi-Point JHP pistol with a longer barrel, and basically - that's what it is!!

Image

It's just amazing how crappy and dirty that 700X powder is.
Even the firing pin assembly show it:

Image

I didn't want to take the front sight off of it to clean it, So I did this to keep the slide from moving around:

Image

Rubber-bands!! What the hell - it's cheap and it works!! (-:

The feed-ramp shows signs that it's broken in alright:

Image

I bought one of these a few years ago:

Image

And it works OK... I used to use a brush and one of those eyelet things to run a patch through the bore.

But, there was a smart fella here that told me about using a Jag.
So I scrubbed the bore with a brush and looked at it - it didn't look too bad.

Then this was the 1st jag i ran through the barrel:

Image

The brush kinda breaks ir up - And a jag really does a good job!!
I ran 2 more patches and it was about as clean as it gets!!

And I really like these little bottles with the needle type applicator:

Image

I can put a drop of oil exactly where I want to with it. :great:

Taking this 4595 apart and putting it back together, a guy has to push in a pin and turn these to get the pin out:

Image

And the little "prongs" on the tool work well for that!

Image

Fits right in there and makes assembly and disassembly a lot easier:

Image

Got it all cleaned and put back together!!

Image

Ready to go make it all dirty again... :mrgreen:

The classic wear marks indicating she's all broke in. Buffed with bullets the way it was intended. Pictures do make for better "show and tell". My Captain Obvious moment.

Husk, you probably know... A brush run through the bore prior to patching cuts your bore cleaning time in half!

I had that post Hobbles put up about his 995 a while back flashing in my mind...
The title was, "USE THE DAMN TOOL!!"
For Hobbles to use all capital letters like that means he's pretty fired up!! :D

Using a jag, as Ex advised me to do, sure works well.
Does a better job and much faster too!!

Yep, I always start with a brush.
I think this winter will be the winter of cleaning guns.
Wouldn't hurt to drag them all out and at least oil them up real good
