I bought a Volquartsen 1022 from Hawktech over 10 years ago, and been sitting nicely in the safe. Planning to take it out finally and add a scope and shoot the thing. Since its been in a safe for so long unfired, it probably needs some oil. Where are the points that needs to be oiled? Any kind of oil work? Remington oil ok?

Also you should clean the bore and rails, then oil the rails before shooting.

nrakid88,

Noooooo please don't clean the bore unless you use a fishing line and patch deal. Pull throughs aren't even warrantied as far as the instructions indicated off/from my Voltquartsen.

Before anyone proced with the bore cleaning I highly suggest you look at their website and find out. I believe the instructions indicate the bores highly polished and any type of cleaning rod will destroy the warranty.

I still have a boresnake for .17hmr. Can it be used on the .22lr? If so, I will pluck the wires out too.

Rem oil will work. I found that Slip2000 EWL is an excellent lubricant for weapons. It doesn't attract dirt quite a readily as other oils, particularly if it's kept thin. Lube the bolt and the little guide rod on the charging handle. If you are mechanically apt, take apart the trigger group and lube the hammer pin. Keep the lube away from the sear-hammer junction if you can.

Volquartsen's web page says that a pull-through is recommended, but whatever you use, it should be breach to muzzle, so don't push a cleaning rod in the muzzle end (it can damage the crown if done inexpertly, and sometimes, even then).

A bore snake is fine to use as long as the rearmost (thick) section is longer than the barrel and the bristles are removed, otherwise the leader can break away from the thick part, and then your barrel is ruined, because you can't pull it out because the bristles won't let it change direction, and you can't push it out because of the way the fibers pack in the barrel. Bad situation.
