I clean them as soon as I get home too, but I only have 3 and I don't shoot as often as I'd like, so its not such a chore. If I'm at home and bored watching the tube, I'll break them out for a little detailing and a bit of oil.

Im usually pretty good about cleaning most of my guns. They get an ammonia bath after shooting. Follwed by a warm soap bath at the shop, couple cans of powder blaster, and then oil.


Only thing is it usually takes all day.

I think I am in the same boat as you. I probably have at least that many that need to be cleaned.

Having an air comrpressor to blow out the dirty solvent and later to blow out the excess oil makes life good.

I've never messed with any Ruger, but if its anything like my Buckmark I bet it sucks. The part that irritates me the most, the guide rod and main spring are two seperate pieces I've spent hours looking for the damn spring after it comes flying out.

i have been searching online for videos of how to strip and clean my gun properly. i found some videos on youtube, but the quality of the videos sucked. i do not know how to clean or maintain a gun properly and would like to learn before going to the range for extensive shooting.

I'm always afraid that if I take my rifles down for cleaning I will never get them back together correctly, the pistol is easy breezy though.

Oh hell I hate cleaning guns. I clean my rifles twice a year, once before deer and again after. My shot guns once a year after duck. My pistols...most every time I shoot them. If you wait till January/February, I might be down for a cleaning party.

And lets keep in mind that several guns, especially shotguns require cleaning differently. Especially the semi auto's that work on gas. Just wanted to point that out before a few well meant tips ends up hurting more that helping.

Does that actually still work? Holy shit.

When I first bought my AR, I bought 500 rounds of Wolf because I didn't know any better at the time.

After I shot and bumpfired about 300 rounds through it (2nd time I shot it) it would not let me bumpfire anymore. It would shoot regular semi-auto just fine. So the Wolf ammo was extremely dirty I learned first hand, and actually affected its usability. Its crazy if yours still works with all that junk built up on there. I have a DPMS AR15, so I'm not sure how a Saber, Colt, Bushmaster, etc.. may handle if they had better parts or something. I should add I don't try to bumpfire all the time, I was just having fun when I first got it and surprised when I found a limitation so quickly.

The AR15 above was the product of an experiment on AR15.com


The guy shot 15,000 rounds without cleaning, and only sprayed a squirt of lube in it every 1000 rounds. At 14,000 rounds, a bolt lug actually sheared off. 1,000 rounds later another one came off, so he stopped the experiment.... but the rifle still worked!

I guess my military time warped my mind. I clean my guns right after shooting. And then after I get home I really clean them. I also clean and inspect every 6-8 weeks even if I don't shoot. My guns are the cleanest things in the house. CLP is one of my favorite fragrances.

I clean em after every shoot. Some of the ammo we fire can be pretty corrosive.
