Rock Island Armory Basic 1911 Cleaning (Official)




What do you think about this video?

SKiTz The Gemini: For everyone saying this method is wrong: This is the manufacturers official channel. I'm pretty sure they know how to clean their guns better than you do.

Pievel C: For those of you who don't know (and after seeing some of the comments, many of you don't) mineral spirits are an ingredient in a number of "gun cleaners" on the market.
Just look at the bottle or if not there look up the MSDS online.

I learned to clean my firearms from a gunsmith back in the 90's, he used gallons the stuff. I've been doing it since then and it will not hurt blued, parkerized or chrome finishes. It's also safe on wood and even the painted on logos on some guns, it just removes the greasy, oily, powdery mess.

You don't need to do it for a field strip like they showed here, a good CLP will do that. This is more for in between a few thousand rounds and maybe even a detail strip but it won't hurt anything if do it more often.

Mac Greenlee: I've read at least 1 gunsmith ( name can't remember at this time) maintenance book that recommends this type of cleaning 1-2 times per year to really de-grease the pistol. It does not appear to be the routine field strip cleaning after a range trip and 200 rounds. I would be inclined to use the odorless mineral spirits and remove the grips, just in case.

WnR DarkSideX66: I don't think I like the idea of using mineral spirits to clean a gun... seems to me like it would take the parkorizng off

YouT00ber: Note that this pistol has the kind of finish where it doesn't matter that you're bathing it in a paint stripper.

Miguel Rodriguez: very wrong in lots of ways

LatinoJackson: is this a troll video, really?

theRomanian1000: You make great guns. Why in the hell can't you make a video that shows the movements SLOWLY, CLEARLY and someone talking you through it? Do you think every customer that buys your gun is part of Seal Team 6 or some badass who went into service? NO!!!! T=Many are fat bastards like me that are learning how to clean the gun for the very first time.

Josue Guzman: after 3000 rounds throught m RIA 1911 i cleaned it like this and the motherfreaker looked new

hawaiianstylin: Ballistol contains medicinal grade mineral oil

champer slimmerthannone: unpost this video ASAP! this is how not to clean anything, but maybe after a nuclear radioactive fallout!

James Gilkey: these things come in a bag of oil. no wonder he uses a tub of spirits. this video is crap. he didnt even use bore cleaner. couldn't do this to my springfield.

Wayne Irey: The title should read:
"How to clean your new gun before firing it the first time, NOT routine cleaning".....that's how you remove Cosmoline from a surplus gun, well, one way anyway, lmao

Xc0nfusi0nX: that is a cat box of mineral spirits

viewingut: Wow, just wow!

EvendimataE: why armscor dont make stainless steel 1911?

FullSpectrumWarrior: Where can I acquire the mineral spirits

Frogman Smith: I can just see kids shooting 1 or 2 boxes through their weapon and cleaning the crap out of it like this!

Patriot1962: I believe this is the way to clean a brand new gun before you fire it or a gun that has been shot a lot, neglected for a while or dropped in mud/dirt/sand  but not as normal cleaning.

rsat pu: How to Crome old gun ? 

Shrimps: Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback. The reason I was able to get sales is because I offer rare shrimps for sale. Not many other online place is willing to take the risk at shipping high priced shrimps. That is my way of earning online.
