Your Cleaning Outfit
When you buy your gun get a cleaning-rod at the same time. This is made of iron, brass, hickory or celluloid with a handle on one end and a slot in the other end to take a rag wiper. A rod costs from 10 to 50 cents according to the kind.
Canton flannel makes the best wipers. A bottle of sperm oil or sewing machine oil will do for lubricating the different parts of the action; a bottle of raw linseed oil for polishing the stock and hand guard, and some cosmic oil, or cosmoline, for cleaning the firing chamber and bore will make up the rest of your cleaning outfit.
