Browning Maxus- Gas Cleaning

Recommended Posts

Just bought a new Maxus. What solvent spray do you use to clean the gas piston and trigger assembly? It looked pretty dirty after just 75 shells.

Used to use Tri-flon but they stopped importing it but I am led to believe it has been re-badged as Tri-flow available on Amazon,

Napier gun cleaning spray has always brought my Maxus piston up nice and clean after a few 100 have been put through it 👍

Aerosol brake cleaner that came free with some new leaf springs. Gets the piston clean, but does need a spray over with some oil to re-coat it, also don't drown a very dirty second hand semi in it, then take it roost shooting. After a few shots the gun may burst into flames sort of like a Christmas pudding

WD40  or lighter fluid with a brass brush to scrub. Brings mine up like new.  The magtube is where I have the most fun getting clean. The carbon and residue can be a pain to get off.

with the auto, dont forget to oil the return spring in the stock. easily done, dont over do it. it should make the action smoother and quiet.

also should run longer between extreme cleaning sessions.

Blue flame if you use eley fiber wad carts the valve and tube will be gummed up with a tar like black goo. Must be off the lube in the kleena wads.

Did a full day a few weeks back, I put 100 through my Maxus as did 4 other people and the gas piston was absolutely filthy. Tried all of the above suggestions but still couldn’t remove some of the grime. I purchased an ultrasonic cleaner off flea bay and dropped it in for an hour, it came out like new.

Soak the carbon in WD40 give it brush then leave wet while I clean rest of the gun. Relube and other parts then go back to the carbon and it usually cleans straight off with a stiff brass brush. 

The ultrasonic sounds good but it's the magtube I have most trouble with.
