Having a clean firearm is essential to ensure it properly functions as well as maintaining its accuracy. Other than the obvious visual signs of being dirty. A gun will begin to function poorly and can even lead to safety issues. Carbon, copper and lead fouling in a barrel can significantly affect a firearms accuracy. With a correct and thorough cleaning of the bore, a firearm can regain some of that lost accuracy. Firearms that rely on the moving parts to cycle freely and unimpeded can begin to mis-feed, not properly eject, and cycle completely. From a safety impact, a dirty gun can function so slowly that once you pull the trigger nothing will happen. Then without warning, a few seconds or even minutes later the firearm can go off!
Here at S3, we have some of the latest a greatest technology to get your gun clean and functioning as safe as the day it was new. Of course, we use lots and lots of good old fashion elbow grease that gets the job done too. We use the latest in cleaning chemicals and oils in conjunction with state-of-the-art sonic cleaners, high-pressure steam cleaners, and fiber optic cameras.

Lubrication is a very crucial part as well. Too much lubrication can be just as bad as not enough. Knowing where, how and how much to use, as well as the correct type to use based on conditions and the type of firearm. These all play a key part in the proper functioning of a firearm.
