New SIG Owner...Need help!!
I recently purchased a Sig SP2022 after seeing it at a gun store, and then finding it on buds for 469.00! I haven't shot it yet, but I have shot a .40 before.
This is my first pistol and first personal gun. I am very excited to take it to the range this weekend, but I need to know...do you need to clean weapons before you fire them when they are new in box? And, what do you use to clean your Sig? What works best as far as solvents, lubricants, brushes, etc? Please help me, I am new to owning and maintenance. I've shot before, just never owned or had to clean my own handgun.
The gun shipped with a high viscosity oil on it and the magazines, and I'm guessing that needs to at least be wiped before I take it out to the range. I don't want to damage it, and I would like it to last a long time. The manual isn't very specific.
Thanks in advance!! Any good advice is appreciated.
