    Ok Billy. I have a question for you. The first time we used my girlfriends Silver Hunter, was at a sporting clays event. Shot the hell out of it, 150 rounds right out of the box. Upon cleaning it, I noticed that the brass slide unit. ( sorry, don't know what else to call it) It is incredibly dirty. Full of black soot looking dust or black gunk. How do I clean it? Should I clean it? And I noticed that there are two small gas port scores on the outer part of the tube magazine. Probably from where the two gas ports from under the barrel. I can get those rather clean. But not totally clean. Any tips on cleaning those two points? And should I re-chrome the tube?

    Any help would be helpful

    Ok, huh, didn't think about Pipe cleaners. Awesome, thanks.

    Hey Shooter, You're a pretty good guy to have around eh. LOL.

    So I see you work for the DOD. Do you guys carry all the time? And what are your weapons of choice? Or are you issued a Gov't selected firearm and you need to figure out how to use it???

    We can't carry up here. Other than long guns. And they are over the top strict with regulations. In case you didn't already know this.

    I have shot this model. I like it. It fits my hand very well. It's just we have so many rules up here, I can only shoot it at a Range. Either indoor or outdoor. But, its not the same as our long guns. They we can shoot anywhere.

    Browning web site has good break down as well as MGW( Midwest gun works). The silver is super easy to break down and clean.

    And you can always use a coffee can with kerosene in it. Let piston soak for about 10 min and it will come right off. If you coat the tube, piston with clp you will be able to wipe most of the residue right off.
