Tips on cleaning my gun

I chopped a ball in the breach yesterday cleaned it briefly while on the field. Today when I got my gun out for some more thorough cleaning and lube I noticed there's paint in the rammer crevice. Other than using cotton swabs anybody have other suggestions to clean out that spot??

You could take out the whole assembly there's a screw were the reg screws in if you take that off then you can take off the lpr assembly if I'm not mistaken.then you can get right to the rammer area through there.if I'm not mistaken.

right, 2 screws on the bottom will allow you to take it all apart.

Yea you'll have to basically gut the whole gun. The valve guide and LPR assembly will all have to come out if you wanna go through it that way.

its not really worth it. a qtip will get it clean enough, and the rammer doesn't actually come in contact with any metal in that area. the valve is high pressure, so no debris will enter there. its basically just a cavity. 2 minute cleaning vs. completely disassembling the gun.

Unless you are comfortable doing this (which I just happened to be doing today to my Ego9) to your gun, go the q-tip route.

If you are not comfy taking you gun apart, you could always sell it to me for the price of a tippy and then we would both be happy...
