Last night I went and put my deposit down on an XLR5 FR 30". My first clays gun, I have been shooting my Browning Silver Hunter and getting more serious about sporting clays.

I shot demo'd an XLR5 LR but choose the FR. Any tips current owners can give would be appreciated. Keeping it clean is no problem as I don't mind spending a 1/2 hour cleaning my gun even after shooting a few shells.

The whole Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance of being involved with your machine and its inner workings and finding peace while working on it concept.

Oil it lightly! Its the only gun I've ever owned that likes to be dry.

Is it true that shooting a XLR5 will make your knee hurt?

:lol: No but it did seem that way I guess! Happened about the same time I got it! I'm well on the way to recovery though. It did keep me from dumpster diving for those beautiful once fired gun clubs this weekend but I'll get 'em next time.

I use Slip2000 oil. Very thin oil. a couple of drops on magazine tube, rials, trigger group parts, and bolt parts.
When takeing apart do not pull bolt back, and same when inserting barrel. I took me awhile to break this habit of pulling bolt back. Make sure you brace the end of the barrel it takes some force. I use the foam on the inside of the case. Other wise the piston seal will fly of.
One other advice when laying down with bolt back warn those who want to pick up. A friend did this and pushed down and released the bolt. You will find this out for yourself. Lol. 10Tenner
