      Just got my CZ75b how often should I clean it?

      I was advised to clean it every time I fire it. I usually put 50 rounds through it at a time! should i clean it every time I shoot? Any tips on how to properly clesn my firearm?

      I don't think there really is a set rule about cleaning as far as I have been able to find.

      I pretty much clean my guns every time I use them and when they have been stored for long periods of time. But I think Im pretty OCD about keeping my gear in orderly fashion.

      I'd say at least 1-2 times a month minimum especially if you have an all metal gun which I do not know if the CZ75b is all metal or polymer ( i think its all metal )

      I guess I'm old fashion, but I wouldn't even think about putting away a gun I used without first cleaning it. But then I enjoy the cleaning as part of the experience of shooting.

      Congratulations and safe shooting!! I'd really like to have one of these myself. I have a Glock 19, but I think I would shoot better with all metal (heavier), full size gun. I like the 9mm caliber and the high capacity format, which both guns have in common.

      The CZ 75 also looks easy to clean. Is that true? And, how do you like the trigger... how does it feel relative to a Glock 19?

      The CZ is a fine weapon that should be cleaned before you shoot it the first time. Yes there are those who have not done so and it worked fine but in my opinion it should be cleaned before the first time you shoot. This weekend I shot 1550 round through mine 650 saturday......a good cleaning and about 900 on sunday. A very needed and good cleaning. If you shot 50 rounds you proably do not have to clean it each time but it will not hurt anything to do so and you will get to know your gun very well. It is very easy to break down and very easy to clean, I would go into the detail but I am not a big typer so look here or look here The 75 p-01 and SP-01 all break down the same!!!

      You picked a great weapon.

      Thank you ronmail. The CZ shoots really well and pretty accurate, the trigger is good it has good control when you pull the trigger. I love the 3 dot sights it comes with. They glow in the dark lol

      I checked out the utube cleaning job. OMG! If I used a sink "in the house" I would be sleeping outside "the house". I clean mine everytime I shoot.

      Since they are simple to field strip, a basic cleaning after firing doesn't seem like a real imposition. A couple of patches down the barrel and a quick clean of the gunk inside the frame. Maybe 10 minutes if you have OCD issues, 5 if you don't?

      I really appreciate all your feedback!! Thank you. Just one more thing....... do I need to oil the mechanisms often? I just want to make sure I take care of it well so no corrosion.
      You guys seem like pros and i'm new at this....

      Your CZ will be lower maintenance over the long haul

      I use motor oil on the moving parts applied with a Q-tip.
      CLP works, but it goes everywhere. From a preservation standpoint, it's probably better than my motor oil & Q-tip.

      Clean your weapons everytime you shoot, without exception. Just do it!

      I put a drop of oil on the slide rails everytime I clean my CZ's. I put a drop on the internal mechanisms as well. If there is too much oil it may stain the padding in your carrying case if there is too little your gun may rust or malfunction. Hmmmmmmm not such a hard decision to make. Cleaning your weapon teaches you many good safty habits as well.....Check to be sure it unloaded. pointing it away from anything valuable. Handling it racking the slide. how the gun feels in your hand. I like to clean my guns!

      I'm with you. I clean all my weapons after a range trip. I clean my CC piece about once a week whether I shoot it or not. Probably a lay-over from being in the Marines. That and I am just anal about that sort of stuff.

      I clean mine if I don't plan on shooting it again within a week. Like my IDPA gun, at the peak of my IDPA addiction, I was shooting twice a week. Cleaning it every time was too much. So generally, I'll clean a gun within a week of shooting it if I plan to store it.
