Ensuring the cleanliness of a firearm is paramount for various reasons:
- Safety: A clean firearm is less prone to malfunctions, reducing the risk of accidents or misfires.
- Reliability: Clean firearms are more reliable and less likely to experience jams or failures.
- Longevity: Proper cleaning and maintenance contribute to the longevity of a firearm. Residue buildup and corrosion can damage components over time, leading to wear and diminished performance.
- Accuracy: Clean barrels and components contribute to better accuracy. Residue accumulation, such as fouling and debris, can negatively impact the shots.
