    I should receive my new Beretta 391 Parallel target Monday. Sometime back there was a thread about spraying them wet with Breakfree CLP and shooting them. I would like some more info on this as I would sure like to find a better way to clean them. Any info? Pro's and con's

    Thanks

    Jerry,
    I shoot a 391 NCP Conversion and yes i shhot it wet sprayed down with Breakfree CLP, Cleanup is easy after shooting, I spray down the piston and the extension where the piston slides over, When cleaning afterwards get a glass jar fill it with mineral spirits drop the piston in the jar for a few minutes and just wpie it off and re spray it again.. Works great! Richie

    Jerryw,

    You might consider doing a search for the word "wet" in the Subject field. There have been numerous discussions on that very subject regarding 391's, Rem 1100/1187's, etc. It takes only a few seconds to do the search.

    I am not as smart as many of the posters here, so I would actually follow Beretta's instructions. Those do not include spraying and shooting wet. But if you want to take advice from someone who has stayed in a Holiday Inn Express, go right ahead. I am certain they know what they are talking about.

    Shoot it wet. Spray the piston area as well as the bolt return spring area. Try to keep the spray away from the trigger though.

    Shoot my 1100,391& 390 wet, cleanup is a breeze and very little wear marks.

    I guess I'm the only one who shoots mine "dry" I clean after every session at the range and dry all internal parts of the gas system before I reassemble. Over 10,000 trouble-free rounds this way.

    Good comments so far. Easystreet thanks for the tip on the search. I did that first but put too many words in the search box. Thanks for the comments.

    I spray everything(internal)except the trigger with break free with clp. When I clean the trigger I just spray it with rem oil and shake it out.

    Youse guys are all "wet"(sic).

    "Damp" is the way to go. spray, wipe off, and put away. clean once a year, but not if it's working good. All that disassembly is not good.
