What is the suggested Cleaning & Maintenance instructions for a Barnard Target Action & Trigger


Through years worth of experience & shooting the following is our suggestions for keeping you’re Barnard action & trigger in the best condition for performance and longevity.
  1. Keep the bolt internals and the trigger internals clean. We don’t recommend lubricants in the trigger. But the trigger must be kept clean. Take note of the trigger maker’s suggestions, if using another brand e.g. Jewel triggers.
  2. The striker system including the bolt sleeve should be lightly lubricated. Use light weight grease on the bolt cocking-cam and cocking piece sear. NOTE, you need less grease than you think. Don’t slow down the striker system by clogging it with grease. Don’t get lubricant in the firing pin hole. 
  3. The action slot in which the cocking piece sear runs should be kept clean and lightly lubricated.
  4. Clean the bolt lugs each time you shoot and lightly lubricate them. Too much lubricant holds grit etc. 
  5. keep the bolt cap tight. Use an Alan key in the hexagonal hole in the bolt cap to remove/disassemble or tighten the shroud. 
  6. Use a bolt guide when you clean & try and keep solvent out of the action. Again particularly the trigger mechanism. 
  7. Lastly take note of the cleaning gunk manufacturer’s instruction.
