FAQ's | Where do I apply grease to on my Krieghoff?

It's important to apply grease where two surfaces contact and especially where they see movement. This helps the gun move with ease and prevents damage to areas which see wear. There are a number of areas listed below to apply grease to:

1. Forearm Lug 

Krieghoff FAQ Grease Areas

The forearm lug on the barrel contacts the forearm iron mechanism. Sometimes overlooked, but is one of the main areas to apply grease to. Apply grease to the outer surfaces of the lug.


2. Barrel Hinge 

Krieghoff FAQ Grease Areas

Apply grease to the inner edge of the cutout (left-hand arrow), this is where the hinge pin on the action connects with the barrel. The surface area (right-hand arrow) also sees contact with the action as the gun is closed, so apply grease here too. Remember to apply grease to both sides.


3. Under the barrel wings 

Krieghoff FAQ Grease Areas

Apply grease to the area underneath the barrel wings. As the gun is closed, this area has slight contact with the action. Remember to apply grease to both sides.


4. Barrel Wings 

Krieghoff FAQ Grease Areas

When the gun is closed, the top latch moves forward over the barrel wings, so apply grease to the sloping edges where the top latch contacts the wings.


5. Forearm Iron face

Krieghoff FAQ Grease Areas

The forearm iron contacts the action on the faces/edges highlighted in a shade of red above. Apply grease to the lower area which has been circled too.
