    I was stripping the action out o the stock when I got home at10-30ish last night.Completely wiped down with a microfibre cloth. Once action dry a good wipe down with an oily cloth and then left chair. Barrel pulled through to dry then a lightly oiled patch through

    Stock dried as well then wiped down with cloth again left of chair over night. Just about to wipe them all down again to put back together.

    Took about an hour to do but glad off Monday to catch up on sleep :D

    EV2 out the stock when got home at 8:30pm. Muzzle brake off. Sunshade and scope enhancer off the scope. Then dried everything. Just put back together and all seems OK. Seeing the other posts - just wonder about taking the trigger cover off - anything to look out for, such as springs jumping out?!!!

    cleaning

    i carry my domi in a case on the course ,that keeps most of the rain of
    after every lane a quick wipe of with a micro fibre cloth that stops the water and crap getting into the action
    when shooting is done its back to the car good wipe over and 2 cleaning felts down the barrel ,

    when i get home gun out of the car and straight into the gunroom and take the stock of good wipe over and and clean the stock with mr sheen ,

    after the action is dry(and mine was as there was no water under the action )a wipe over with an oily rag and clean the barrel with the vfg kit fill with air and put 10 shots through it to ensure all is ok .

    then back in the stock torque the stock bolt and then emty the car ,,

    and last of all give wifey a kiss

    well i know its sad but you did ask :eek:
