For example, I have yet to read any gun manual that say anything like,"oil and grease that beech until it runs and drips off the barrel". I am exaggerating of course, but then I have never read a manual that recommends heavy use of oil or grease anywhere on the gun.
Additionally, have you ever read this? "To clean the gun jam the cleaning rod down the muzzle from the crown of the barrel toward the chamber". Nope.
Am I missing something here?
Yes, that's why I said in the last sentence "plus I think it applies to all firearms." A little common sense.
The only thing you may have missed is this was mostly intended for newbies or people that when they join and have issues with there pistol. Either ask how to clean and lube or say I didn't see that in the manual or otherwise make excuses when it is right there in Red & White.
