IF anyone has any good videos on cleaning pistol I like to see. I bought the rod but was not sure exactly the process of cleaning it out. I just stuck a pad dipped full of the cleaning solution I bought at sportsman warehosue and pushed it on the needle of the rode and put it through the barrel and cleaned the rest of what I could. A lot of gunk came off and it looks clean, but I will have someone inspect it before I shoot it again. Anyway, now that I cleaned it I suppose the gun lube of the gun is now gone. If anyone can give me any advice on how to lube it and what lube to use, I appreciate it. Thanks.
