I am No Longer A Cleaning Virgin
« on: October 11, 2009, 06:07:04 PM »
Hi All,

Ok I just completed my very first Rohrbaugh Stealth Cleaning. ;D

First off, from the many horror stories I reviewed on the forums.. I was for sure expecting the worse. Well to my amazement I cleaned and lubed the pistol in approx 30 minutes. I made sure to lube every part mentioned in the instruction booklet and listed on the forum.

Upon stripping the pistol I thoroughly cleaned inside -out. I then sprayed a dry-lube on all the necessary parts and then followed up with recommended forum grease.

BTW: I removed the spring assembly by hand and reinserted the assembly using needle nose pliers. However I will mention I purchased a fuse puller as mention in the forums, but I have not had an opportunity to drill the holes in the fuse puller yet.

I am sooooooooooooo happy this did not turn into an all day project or worse.

So far very happy with my purchase, cleaning ease and quality.

Thanks for listening.

Jordan

Congratulations, Jordan, on your first successful cleaning. It is like many other things in life: our imagined fears are much worse than the reality.
One of my more astute friends observed that nothing very good or very bad lasts for very long.
