I was wanting to know from you who own or have owned one of these how oftened you cleaned it? Also how did you clean it? For anyone who might have cleaned it a lot how did that impact it's accuracy? Does anyone have a manuel for it? I purchased mine used and do not have a manuel.

Thanks,

i have one made in Japan.

i was told NOT to clean it...at least the barrel...i just wipe down the outside and brush out the action with an old toothbrush. if i were to clean the barrel, i'd use a boresnake and clean from the chamber

i think i saw an old manual once online.

I had one of the original XXIIs, it shot good. Loaned it to my father in Fla. and it was then stolen, lost an Ithaca Md. 37 20 ga. too. That was years ago but the tear tracks are still visible on my cheeks.

I cleaned the XXII by removing the metal from the stock when it started looking pretty dirty inside. Sprayed light oil into the action and barrel, from below, to flush out the build up of crud. A few toothpicks helped clean in corners.

I didn't use a rod on it and that was before bore snakes were born. I pulled a .22 pistol brush from the chamber to the muzzle a couple of times with a stout piece of fishing line and it was done.

Today I'd use spray brake or carborator cleaner to clean the action and follow that with a spritz of something like Rem spray oil.

hello, ive always taken mine apart to clean,its pretty easy.once the rear pin is removed,the action can be pulled from the stock.push action slightly foward when pin is out,then pull up from barrel end first.just take your time so stock does not get dinged.the bolt spring is removed from the rear,the bolt handle pulls out,& the bolt comes out.ive always cleaned the barrel too,carefully from the bore end.putting back,just reverse every procedure,barreled action connects back to stock/trigger assembly,& is pushed back slightly to butt end,pin is pushed back in.with gun apart,you can clean trigger area with q tips.
