Everyone owns a Luger at some point in their life. The lovable gun is a favorite subject in pop culture and inspires the cosplaying and nerddom of industrial designers.
Unfortunately, Luger ownership also comes with added maintenance responsibilities. Despite its delicate porcelain look, it’s a very safe and sturdy gun to use, so long as you regularly maintain and clean it.
That’s easier said than done, though. Luger with stock disassembly and cleaning can be challenging without the right guidance.
Read on for the Luger maintenance tutorial on breaking it down and why you should do so at regular intervals.
Careful Disassembly of the Luger
First, hold the gun on its left side with the safety in the off position. Then fully retract the toggle assembly. Use the flat end of a pencil to push the locking block pin-up, and then remove the barrel.
Unscrew the extractor by using the proper-sized screwdriver. With the extractor removed, unscrew the firing pin and the firing pin retaining sleeve.
Separate the grip from the frame by pulling out both pins at the top of the grip. Lift and turn over the trigger guard to remove it from the frame. Finally, removing the rear toggle pin is necessary to break apart the receiver and bolt.
Cleaning the Parts of the Luger
Take out all of the small parts. Use a good quality gun oil and gun cleaning solution. It is for wiping down and cleaning each of the individual components.
Use a soft cloth to ensure no damage to the parts. After everything has been adequately wiped down, you can move on to reassemble the gun.
Begin to start with the most important components, like the firing pin. Then continue with the trigger, springs, and grip panels. Finally, lubricate the metal components and add a little gun oil to the barrel before putting the gun back together.
Stock Removal and Cleaning
The first step is to make sure that the gun is unloaded. There are no live rounds in the chamber. Once done, you should remove the stock panels, such as a 9mm luger ammo, with either a screwdriver or a wrench.
Once the luger stock is removed, the next step is to clean it of any debris and dust that may have gathered inside. This is with a soft cloth, a damp sponge, or an air compressor if necessary.
Precautions for Storage and Safety
Properly clean and lubricate the firearm according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Store the firearm in a secure area that is out of reach of children and unauthorized individuals.
Keep the Luger in a locking metal box or gun safe to secure and not accessible by other people. Use safety locks when transporting the firearm.
The firearm must be unloaded when storing it, and check it periodically to ensure it is unloaded. Finally, storing ammunition separately from the firearm in a secured area is important.
