Routine maintenance is essential to keeping your Model 7600 firearm in top condition for years to come.
Lubrication and Maintenance
NOTE: The chamber should be cleaned before loading and firing the firearm the first time. Follow cleaning instructions shown below.
Over-lubrication should be avoided at all times. A thin coat of Rem™ Oil is needed to prevent the possibility of rusting. See note below.
When the firearm is to be stored, it should be carefully cleaned and thoroughly oiled. Outside surfaces should be wiped with a light coat of Rem™ Oil occasionally.
When the firearm is to be reused, all excess lubrication must be removed. The chamber and bore must be thoroughly wiped dry.
NOTE: Remington Rem™ Oil is available from your local dealer. If your dealer is out of stock, ask him to order Rem™ Oil from his Remington distributor.
TO CLEAN THE BARREL:
WARNING: Check the chamber and magazine to make sure there are no cartridges in the firearm.

- Put the cleaning brush into the gun cleaning solvent.
- Push the cleaning brush through the barrel several times.
NOTE: Always clean the barrel from the muzzle to the chamber.
