    rem 700 cleaning

    How do other rem 700 users out there clean the part of the action that the locking lugs run in?

    I find that area really hard to clean.

    Any tips?

    Toothbrush is what I use to clean the guide rails on my 700

    Or, a small square plastic rod wrapped in flannel or cloth (or even round for that matter). A bit of a split in the end of the stick, stick the cloth in and wrap around...

    I generally find that I can give it a wipe with an oily rag maybe on a toothbrush after a hunt and only have to deep-clean once in a blue moon anyway. What are you doing to get the thing dirty enough that you need to clean it that intensively?

    Don't go hunting/shooting. I find this the most effective way to keep my rifles in tip top condition.

    If we're talking the lug recesses, I blast them with brake cleaner on my Remington.
    Don't know if I'd do the same if it was bedded, mines not.

    Yep, the part of the action that the lugs rotate in, in front of the chamber. Can't get into it properly.

    Brownells will be the place to look. Brakleene will remove all grease, and IMO you want a very little but on the lugs.

    Agreed, reapply a suitable grease to the bolt lugs once they, & the action recesses are clean to prevent any galling.

    And a gun bearer!! Had a brand new Sako (80s model weight about 3 1/2 ton) once in 270, booted me soo much I swear I just used too shut my eyes and yank the trigger. Scared shitless of it I was.

    Traded it on a M700 and never looked back.
