Semi-Auto Shotgun Cleaning

Semi-Auto Shotgun Cleaning

Breaking down and cleaning your auto loading shotgun shouldn’t be a chore. Here we show you how simply it can be done. Many gas-operated shotguns are disassembled similarly with minor parts differences. Don’t wait months for a gunsmith to work on your gun, do it yourself and save time and money.
Plus get the satisfaction of maintaining your firearm.

    I have the same Charles Daly shotgun and I can’t get the tube off to clean the spring and inside of the tube. The last round will come out of the tube about 3/4s out then stop I’ve cleaned everything I can get too. But I’m still having the problem. Is the oring the last thing to go back onto the tube before putting the barrel back on? I couldnt see vary well on your video.

    Hey mannyCA

    Have you ever removed the bolt release button and latch assembly. I accidently did a No! No! with this gun and by mistake when I removed the barrel tripped the bolt release and slammed the bolt into the receiver. Manual states to never do this as it would most likely do damage to the bolt handle. I had no problem with that but I believe it bowed the latch and now when I load the gun the shell carrier rides against the rear of the latch and drags on each shell loaded. Hence I would like to replace that part. Any information on breaking this assembly appreciated.

    Where is the graphite o-ring? Mine has one and they are available online.

  8. Angelo Enoc on May 6, 2023 at 4:11 am

    I will save this video fro cleaning my shotgun. 🤔👍👍

  9. George BOULTADAKIS on May 6, 2023 at 4:12 am

    U don’t need to take it apart all the way, just the barrel clean it and the frame of the slide and ur good

  10. Steve Balistreri on May 6, 2023 at 4:13 am

    Nice informative video. The gun looked like it was hardly shot and was not that dirty. Did not see any powder residue inside the trigger either?

  11. Chris Elliott on May 6, 2023 at 4:13 am

    We’re can I get new trigger retaining pins and I can’t find a model number it’s a Charles Daly 12 ga 3′ chamber gust like the one in the video I have a ss #

  12. Bigdeziman on May 6, 2023 at 4:14 am

    What kind of sights can I use on this??? I’m confused

  13. Seamus YT1396 on May 6, 2023 at 4:15 am

    My barrel will not come out

  14. Lou Mahovetz on May 6, 2023 at 4:15 am

    Loved the video would it be possible to show how to replace the shell extractor on that daly

  15. Trillix on May 6, 2023 at 4:18 am

    2 hours later…still trying to get the M-Fing bolt handle out. It’s only minutes from intentional and permanent destruction.

  16. R Meshr on May 6, 2023 at 4:18 am

    My 20 Daly has a “O” ring on the end of the tube. I did not notice one on the Daly. Are they only on specific gauges?

  17. Mirror16 on May 6, 2023 at 4:21 am

    I use flat screwdrivers to remove hex head bolts too because I don’t have proper tools either.

  18. Grant on May 6, 2023 at 4:23 am

    Guy makes fun of WD40, which admittedly isn’t the best thing to use, but then uses soap and water…

  19. Fazli Akbar Khan on May 6, 2023 at 4:24 am

    We have shot gun,but there is one problem that when the trigger is it does not at once but some ti fire what is this shortcoming or mistak?

  20. Culper Junior on May 6, 2023 at 4:24 am

    What did he mean by we don’t want any Queens around here?

  21. palis911 on May 6, 2023 at 4:25 am

    Whete did the O ring go when putting everything together ?

  22. Rebecca Inglis on May 6, 2023 at 4:25 am

    Where’s the gas cylinder located on a semi auto 12 gauge shotgun

  23. npc #051011 on May 6, 2023 at 4:32 am

    Still running after all that WD forty? That’s a miracle in itself no?

  24. mannyCA on May 6, 2023 at 4:32 am
  25. RJ Sinnett on May 6, 2023 at 4:33 am

    How do I take the stock off? Can’t find anything to take that bolt off

  26. Ryan Norman on May 6, 2023 at 4:34 am

    Great video. I’ll be re watching this every time I break my shotgun down. Thanks for this video.

  27. Jaleel Roberts on May 6, 2023 at 4:34 am

    What is the exact name of this model Charles Daly?

  28. Jeff Carrasco on May 6, 2023 at 4:35 am

    Any thoughts or fixes if the loading ramp gets stuck and only moves when bolt release button is pushed?

  29. Victor Alvarez on May 6, 2023 at 4:36 am

    Did he say it was cleaned only with WD 40?!?! 😂

  30. isonlynameleft on May 6, 2023 at 4:36 am

    Thanks for making the video but why did you use soap and water instead of solvent? Seems like that would be safer just in case cuz you sure don’t want any moisture left on there?

  31. Advanced Tactical Imports HSV on May 6, 2023 at 4:37 am

    So, no mention of the buffer or piston or did I miss it? Nice video, that sucker is clean for sure.

  32. Collared Greens on May 6, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Thanks for the video! I just got a severely neglected semi-auto in need of some care. Has chunks of lint and dog hair (I think) in all the moving parts. yeesh.

  33. thexxlast on May 6, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Hey @mannyCA , when I took the bolt out I seem to have an extra piece then you do, is there some internal little bit that you didn’t remove here?

  34. Wheres-my Angels on May 6, 2023 at 4:44 am

    I’d break it down and clean all metal parts with a tooth brush and paint thinner.
    And for the plastic trigger assembly I’d spray it with silicone lubricant spray then blow it out with compressed air and keep doing it till its clean.
    Then you coat all of the action parts with Remington DriLube and reassemble, then you spray the inside and outside of your magazine Tube with Remington Driube and finish assembly.

    Then you shoot Squirrels all week take off the barrel and clean it and just use the air compressor to blow out the action
    Remington DriLube lasts a long time it makes the action faster and lowers friction repels water and wont wash away and it has Teflon to reduce friction and wear.

    And if Remington is too expensive use DuPont Teflon non-stick spray they made the Remington stuff too.
    And put it on a patch and lube the barrel too.
    I use Permatex copper anti-seize for choke tubes and magazine tubes,.. a dab will do you.
    Never use WD-40

  35. Joel Dorsett on May 6, 2023 at 4:47 am

    Am i supposed to lube the big sprimg that the slide goes on

  36. Hjerte Verke on May 6, 2023 at 4:47 am

    "Incomplete Shotgun Cleaning." This is a mediocre video for a beginner and someone who has no prior experience and nothing to depend on except the horribly written little instruction book these Turkish shotguns come with. A lot is left out, and there’s edits where you obviously skipped over a lot of details that would be helpful–But it’s typical of a lot of early Youtube videos and worth what I paid for it, which is $0.00. Hahahaa

  37. Big Ticket on May 6, 2023 at 4:47 am

    Nearly identical gas system as the Hatsan, except no O-ring and longer mag tube. Trigger is close but not exact.

  38. Aaron Trotter on May 6, 2023 at 4:48 am

    Is there any company that still
    Makes this shotgun? I had mine for many years and many rounds through it flawlessly. I know Charles Daly has been sold many times so just wondering who
    Makes it now?

  39. Larry Larry on May 6, 2023 at 4:52 am

    Enjoyed video. Informative.. Please list lubricants.

  40. Big Domz on May 6, 2023 at 4:54 am

    I have a question about 1 piece on yours. My Daly is missing a piece that slides down the magazine tube and i am going to make one on the lathe. I just dont know if its made of plastic or aluminum. My email is if you could email me please i would really appreciate it. I can send you pictures of the piece mine is missing.

  41. Linda Michal on May 6, 2023 at 4:55 am

    Could you post a video on how to clean a Black Aces Shockwave?

  42. The Captain on May 6, 2023 at 4:55 am

    Great video!
    I just bought a MOSSBERG SA 20 Tactical with the pistol grip. I removed the magazine plug and went to the range. It would not recycle. I has to manually eject each spent shell. Any ideas what I need to do? Thanks!

  43. Winston Johnson on May 6, 2023 at 4:55 am

    What’s the "plug" for, that you see @4.45 slip out of the tube, what’s it for? What does it do? I loved the video though, love it Brah

  44. Paul Koenig on May 6, 2023 at 4:56 am

    I have the same shotgun and cannot load it through the bottom the lever where the shell goes in will move up to allow the shell in. it appears to me that there is a piece of metal that is preventing it. The metal bar moves when you depress the release button. Any suggestions

  45. xclusivesin on May 6, 2023 at 4:56 am

    Is it possible to switch this particular shotgun. Barrel to a huncho style Barrel

  46. Omprakash Ghosh on May 6, 2023 at 4:56 am

    How to geet in india??

  47. Smokee Jenkins on May 6, 2023 at 4:59 am

    I now it’s off topic of the cleaning but is the Charles Daly 12 gauge capable of shooting SuperX 3" number 4 shell’s out of it or is it just for small game use? If you could let me know I would greatly appreciate it.

  48. Ghulam Murtaza on May 6, 2023 at 5:00 am

    open the trigger group plz

  49. Michael Villalpando on May 6, 2023 at 5:00 am
