How often do you guys remove and clean the firing pin/chanel?? I have one pistol where it needed it around 1000 rounds and one that has not had it done after the 4000 mark. From what I understand this is not done in a normal strip and clean.
I clean mine out once in a while, but not every time I clean the guns. I have found that using any kind of solvent(Hoppe's) or solvent/oil any where near the firing pin ,makes that area a magnet for gunk to collect. Lately I give it a blast of either brake cleaner or something similar then follow up with a blast of compressed air. It gets the gunk out without leaving behind any lube to attract more dirt and stays clean for longer.
