simple green, water rinse and towel dried followed by CLP.
I only stripped it apart completely once just out of curiosity, glad I had the disassembly/reassembly DVD

WTF is this guy on? he has posted 3 times in 3 different threads with random BS. "lets see your green glocks " he posts " NO".... hey ASSHAT lay off the meth and stop licking your lips!


Anyway. back to the thread. After any amount of range time i strip the slide from the frame remove the rod and barrel. I usually don't remove the trigger housing from the frame when just doing a normal cleaning. I use hoppes #9 to remove any unburnt powder etc. Q-tip and rag usually. I use a boresnake on the barrel. I use CLP to lube it ( rails, barrel cam,barrel,inside of slide where the barrel makes contact, and one drop on the trigger bar connector. ). Put it back together and dry fire it with snap caps 3 or 4 times. I use simple green and a air compressor on my ARs.

I do the same thing. Use hot water, plastic brush and let it air dry.

I left mine in my pant pocket once. After I heard a clunking in the dryer, I pulled it out. It came out very nice with Snuggle fabric softner.

I hardly ever do clean it... probably every 1000 rounds or so. I field strip, wipe down all parts in CLP, brush then patch out the bore with CLP, put a drop of CLP on the metal frame rails, re-assemble. Anything more than that is a waste of time.

In 13 years I have cleaned my G17 four times, it has never failed me, when if ever it does fail, that's when I will clean it.

Don't worry, I was only joking.

I strip and clean throughly every 1000 rounds through my 19. But after every range session I at least completely clean the barrel, inside and out. That is mainly just to get rid of the carbon that will get all over everything the gun touches.

I have a serious problem...I can't leave a gun uncleaned overnight. I know, I know, a Glock doesn't need it...but I do it anyways lol.

I use simple green, and a tooth brush. Followed by a good rinsing in the sink, and then air dry over night.

Lube it up real good, and put it all back together.

Seems to work for me.

Ditto here. Guilty as charged. Bring out the Q-tips and pipe cleaners.

That's what I do after every range trip, too. I can't imagine how gummed up mine would be if I didn't clean it. 13K+ rounds, and it still looks almost brand new when stripped.

Well, because no one else said it yet, I use break clean, tooth brush and compressed air. I strip mine every 700 - 900 rounds. You can go longer, but I don't bother to find the limit. Mine is a G17, 16 years old. I clean the barrel, ramp, and oil it around every 200. I just kinda know when to do it I guess. I use it for IDPA so it sees about 400 rounds a month, not much.


And, the Q tip is the PERFECT tool for the extractor hole.
Link Posted: 9/27/2004 9:58:38 AM EDT
Um, good question.
I need to think about cleaning my G19 some day. It's for range use only and has around 3500 rounds of Wolf through it.
It hasn't stopped working and I just want to see how far it will go before it does.

You know why, on the average, women have smaller feet than men don't you?...............So they can stand closer to the sink and stove.

I read that on a joke list somewhere. Use it with caution. Yea....it's sexist, but still some funny shit!

On topic..........I clean mine in the ordinary fashion after every range trip. Breakfree/FP-10, Gunscrubber (slide only), rod, Q-tips, etc. Probably not neccessary but, being a duty weapon, I am not taking chances. It gets a complete stripdown cleaning every six months during qual's. YMMV.
