Question about Heating & Cooling
David - This is a firearm we're talking about here - not an air conditioner - right?
If you are not familiar with this particular weapon ie: never stripped and cleaned it before and do not have a manual; you should bring it to someone to evaluate it for you. Better to be safe than sorry. This is very important. Do not tinker with this weapon if you are not familiar with it. It may be loaded, a round may be chambered already - so removing a clip or magazine will not make it "safe" to dry fire. Switch the trigger to SAFE and keep it out of the reach of those that may not know better. Nearly everyone that accidentally shot someone "thought the gun wasn't loaded". Don't make that mistake.
If you are familiar with the weapon, take precautions to make sure it is unloaded and safe. If you can't remember how to strip it (and clean and lubricate it), you may find a manual for it online with google. You might have to arrange for purchase of a manual online or at a gun shop if one is not available for free.
You'll want to be sure that weapon is thoroughly cleaned. All mechanisms should be silky smooth when manually operated. The breech / chamber / bolt / ejector pin / firing pin should be clean and free of gun power residue and fouling. Ant springs should be clean and whole. Gas tubes on semi autos should be clear. It is very important that the inside of barrel is clean, unobstructed and free from rust and pitting. There should be a mirror-like quality when inspecting the barrel. This done with a finger or thumb in the breech (but not blocking the opening to the barrel) and looking down the barrel from the end on long guns.
