100 rounds today

Postby Mark38090 » Tue May 02, 2017 3:16 pm

Put 100 federal fmj through my CPX2 today. First 70 were flawless then started having trouble with failure to extract, the more I shot the worse it got. Gun was filthy so I'm thinking it was just dirty. When I got home to clean it the extractor is perfect so next trip to the range I'll pack along a cleaning kit. I sure do love this pistol.

This is about the amount I've seen with the sky before hickups.
They are not known to be range guns.
This said I tend to run ~100 rounds at the range also.

Found info on some other forum sites about cleaning. Has anybody used non-chlorinated (?) brake cleaner on your SCCY? Or any other firearms that you might have. What is your experience and feed back on this? Interested if you had a good outcome and continue to get positive results? Thanks for your input.

I've noticed that my sccy starts to act funky around~50 rounds.
A quick clean-up does the trick.

My Bersas do this too. I can get about a box or so through them, then they get "picky". :wink:

Some spray oil and a boresnake might be handy in your shootin' bag.

my experiences with sccys ,keltecs , and other small pistols are the same . the recoil springs and slide weight is not enough to
overcome dirty chambers and ammo thats just a little off . full size guns will tolerate alot more of that . leave the `i never clean my gun`
stuff to the glock enthusiasts . i think its important to keep them lubricated too, they will run dirty, but not dry-------------

I've used non chlorinated brake cleaner on metal gun parts, not on wood or plastic. Remember it removes ALL the dirt and oil so you have to relube carefully. When I was in the Army our maintenance section almost ruined a M2 Browning by washing it in the parts washer and not re-oiling it thoroughly. All of the oil that had soaked into the pores of the metal over the previous 30 years was purged. It started to rust quite quickly and in hard places co clean.

Good advice. I would only use brake cleaner or Gunscrubber in extreme cases. It goes everywhere and may remove oil you don't want removed. Use a spray lube to make sure you don't miss anything.

I used to use brake cleaner, but gave up on it after I got some overspray on a nice wood stock, bad news that. Really, brake cleaner is much stronger (more caustic) than needed for gun cleaning. Also it is tough on your hands. It works but is really overkill on guns....
