    Question How to clean thoroughly/poor mfgs. instructions

    I own three guns and have the original manuals. None of the manuals provide any information on cleaning beyond removing the slide, barrel, main spring.

    I have sprayed the heck out of each with a commercial gun cleaner, brushed with a tooth brush, and put them back together with a light lube on the slide.

    Where can I find instructions/directions, for tearing them down further. It seems clear the manufacturers are not encouraging that and perhaps for good reason. Yet, there are obviously plenty of places where grit exists that I can't get to.

    So, any thoughts, and in particular instructions or url to instructions for thorough cleaning of the following three weapons:

    a) Walther P22
    b)S&W Model 99 .40 Compact
    c) Colt Mustang .380

    http://www.stevespages.com/ may well help with more detailed parts information. Hang on - not sure if that's right site I wanted - I'll check back. OK - this is more specific - lots of PDF manuals - http://www.stevespages.com/page7b.htm

    Not sure re cleaning instructions tho. I am wondering if a simple web search on ''gun cleaning'' for example would very likely turn up some existing info for you - general and specific too - re semi's, revo's rifles etc.

    If you have no luck with that or here after a bit - then many of us can write up some details for you - just a matter of time right now.

    Additions - this looks handy for some folks - it's about home made cleaning stuff, tho not as I can see methods as you want. Interesting tho -

    Thanks, but what I see there is the same as in the manuals I have.
    I'm looking for how to get in and do a more thorough cleaning.

    Oops sorry - it was only a quick scan - but some searching will I am sure find more detailed stuff.

    The PDF manuals on Steve's pages might I thought have been a bit more info .... anyways hopefully it'll pan out.
