He would probably like the military and their unneccessary cleaning. Over cleaning with too much CLP is why M-16's have problems.

(He thinks he's a gunsmith) (I once thought I was one too till I met the real dea & made me own Hack jobs!) He uses whatever is available if he doesn't have the tools he Rigs whatever he finds! I function clean my guns & keep them from rusting, that all I do, but he thinks everything is user servicable!
Just a minute ago he showed me the cylinder from his SW Model 17 .22 Of course it was off the gun!!! Asked me if I thought it was clean enough. When I cringed he said i was mad because i didn't know how to take one off & I said you dont take them off! He thinks everything is user servicable! I don't know revolvers well but isn't that possibally going to affect timing?

Id like to see him in the service & tell his DI that he took his 16 lower apart because it's user servicable! Ohhhh the pain he would be in!

What does everybody think???



I got the military cleaning bug too, but I'm overcoming it. I only completely strip my weapons every four or five times I shoot them. But I do take them almost completely apart. I pulled apart my Ruger Standard Model just the other day, and last week I not only took the cylinder off of my 640, but also the sideplate.

Way I see it, the user should strive to become an expert at servicing ANYTHING he operates, from his J-Frame to his vehicle. One day there might not be anyone else around to service it for him.

I take mine down to the frame twice a year, once at the beginning of bullseye season, one in the middle.

With the exception of using corrosive ammo, or use in rain/snow, far more guns are damaged by overaggressive cleaning than by lack of cleaning.

If you don't know how to clean correctly, it's best left dirty...

if you have a ultrasonic cleaner.. Just dump the gun in and 20 mins later. its spotless!
