  2. Field Strip (Optional): Some shotguns like the CZ Drake can be disassembled for easier cleaning. Consult your owner’s manual for instructions on how to field strip your shotgun if necessary.
  3. Basic Cleaning:
    a. Attach a bore brush (12 gauge) to your cleaning rod and soak it in gun cleaning solvent.
    b. Insert the brush into the barrel from the chamber end and scrub the bore several times to remove fouling and residue.
    c. Remove the brush and attach a cleaning patch soaked in solvent to the rod. Run it through the barrel until it comes out relatively clean. Replace the patch as needed.
  4. Breech and Action Cleaning:
    a. Use cleaning patches or cotton swabs to clean the receiver, bolt face, and other parts of the action.
    b. Use a nylon or brass brush to scrub the nooks and crannies of the action and receiver.
    c. Apply solvent to remove built-up carbon and residue.
  5. Choke Tubes (if removable): If your CZ Drake has removable choke tubes, remove them and clean both the tubes and the threads. Use a choke tube brush and solvent to clean them thoroughly.
  6. Cleaning the Chamber: Use a chamber brush and solvent to clean the chamber area.
  7. Final Bore Cleaning: Run a dry cleaning patch or bore snake through the barrel to remove any remaining solvent and debris. Continue this step until the patch comes out clean.
  8. Inspect for Residue: Carefully inspect all parts for any remaining residue or fouling. Use cotton swabs or cleaning picks to remove any stubborn buildup.
  9. Lubrication: Apply a small amount of gun oil to a cleaning patch and lightly lubricate the inside of the barrel, action components, and any moving parts. Be sure to follow your firearm manufacturer’s recommendations for lubrication points.*CZ Drake 12GA 28″ Barrel O/U 06092
  10. Reassemble (if disassembled): If you field stripped your shotgun, reassemble it according to your owner’s manual.
  11. Exterior Cleaning: Wipe down the exterior of your shotgun with a clean cloth or gun cleaning cloth to remove any fingerprints, dirt, or oil.
  12. Storage: Store your CZ Drake in a dry, cool place away from humidity and moisture. Use a silicone-treated gun sock or case to protect it from dust and scratches.

Remember to always follow safety guidelines when handling firearms, and consult your CZ Drake owner’s manual for specific cleaning and maintenance instructions, as different shotguns may have specific requirements. Regular cleaning and maintenance will help ensure your shotgun continues to function reliably.
