    necessary?

    Hi Folks

    I was fortunate enough to have a Wilson combat CQB offered to me(and my wife ok'd the early BD present--LOL)--a new neve rfired CQB .45 acp
    could not refus e the offer---LOL

    anyway having read the manual and the guide provided for maintenance-- I am a bit out of sorts. I usually do a field strip, clean and relube(oil only)of all my guns after each range session--BUT the long manual discusses removing parts like extractors, firing pins, firing pin blocks... I am wondering if this is needed all the time -- or at all--todays guns are so efficient and sealed so well that I never thought of cleaning these areas in my guns --period.. so far no issues with any gun and taking down a gun like Wilson Combat suggests leave lots of room for errors and extra parts when done--LOL

    any opinions or thoughts>

    All of my 1911's get a once a year total strip down and ultra sonic cleaning.
    I do field clean them after each use. Field strip, light oil of parts and toothbrush the internal parts to remove burnt powder and soot. Now if you intend to put 5000 rounds a month thru your 1911, I'd clean it much more often.

    boatdoc173:
    The 1911 is one of the easiest guns to completely take apart. It can also be done without tools. How often you do this depends on how many rounds you put through it. Take your time and become familiar with the complete take down procedure, it really is not that difficult. People who know their guns inside and out are always better off than those who just shoot them and forget about them.

    @desertman- I hope you are right-- when I bought my first 1911--it seemed daunting just to filed strip it--now it is easy... so I will use the youtube videos as a guide when I decide to detail strip and clean 2x yearly

    again thank you for the info guys

    happy shooting
