Semi-Auto Gas System Cleaning

Just purchased the RIA VR80 for my shotgun tactical matches.  First 100 shell break-in period is accomplished. My big question of the day is: Do you Lube or Grease the gas piston and Gas Block after cleaning OR wipe it down dry after cleaning?

 

Thanks,

John

That makes a lot of since now.  After running another 75 rounds the shell would not automatic eject.  During cleaning I noticed that the Gas Piston was stuck in the Gas Block. LOL.   It took a lot of soaking to remove it, also there was gunk in the gas block.  I'm assuming that was carbon mixed with a little CLP.  Now I will wipe that area dry (Gas piston, block, and barrel) after cleaning with CLP.

 

Thanks Again,

 

John

Thanks for the advice.  Finished my Break-in phase today.  

 

Ran the remaining 50 shells of Monarch 1350fps and had no Hiccups.  Ran 15 shells of Winchester 1200fps and 15 shells of Federal 1200fps, had no issues.

 

I will keep the Gas System dry after cleaning.
