Cleaning the CZ opinions requested
« on: July 27, 2017, 09:32:06 PM »
I have read quit a bit on the topic, now I would like to hear from the people who are in the know, how often do you clean your rifle?  I have always cleaned all my firearms after each outing, am I wrong? Thanks

I use a Patchworm after each use in the bore, one patch with whatever cleaner I have and one dry patch, wipe down the bolt with a clean oily rag, and do the same with the metal. I wipe the excess off the exterior metal.

I rarely use a brush, maybe every 500 rounds, and then just in the chamber/leade.
I had the right to remain silent...

but not the ability.

I clean the bolt and chamber after every range trip as well as wipe the metal and wood down. When my groups start spreading I run a wet patch, nylon brush and dry patch through it till it comes out clean. This is usually 600-800 rounds. Then I will fire about 20 rds through the barrel to foul it

I wipe the outside down with an oil rag every once in a while.  It depends a little on the weather at the time I'm shooting it too.

I seldom run a brush or patch down the barrel.  I'm pretty good about cleaning my guns but I don't worry about my .22 rimfires that much. 

I've had my 452 Lux for about ten years now and have probably run a brush down the barrel twice. 

I'm shooting iron sights but the accuracy seems just as good now as the day I bought it.  My eyesight is a different story though.....

I clean after every outing...action, barrel...everything. It's just one of those things that I know each gun in the safe is clean, lubed ready for the next outing. Maybe it's over the top but it's a process I am comfortable with  :)

I am shopping for a CZ in 22 LR, why I am here today. I guess I will be with it like every other gun I own. If I shoot it, I clean it. Never go to sleep with a dirty weapon of any kind. Anal I guess.

Back in the days of corrosive ammo leaving the barrel/chamber dirty at the end of the day was a good way to ruin the barrel.

I was raised to clean it/lube it if I shot it and to wipe it down with an oily rag before it went back in the case.  If I got it out and hunted with it or handled it then I still wiped it down with an oily rag before I put it away.  If I went hunting on a rainy wet day it got a full clean/lube job just as if I'd shot it.

If it rusts between uses - you didn't do your job right.

I remember my dad even cleaning/wiping down his grandfather's old felling saw when I was a kid at home (before he got his first chain saw in the mid 70's).  Take care of it and it'll last a long time.

Some people say a barrel has to be dirty to shoot well.  Could be true with some guns.  It isn't true with others.  These days you can get away with leaving the barrel dirty, but you may pay for not keeping the outside metal surfaces wipe off with an oily rag.  I look at pictures on the internet of old 1911's (WW1 Military pistols) and see how ragged they look and then look it mine and it's pitiful the way some people abuse a gun.

As stated in a previous post - if you clean/lube it after you shoot it you know it's ready the next time.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.
