    How Often To Clean A 22

    just got back from the range with my new P22 walther
    100 rounds without a flaw
    used CCI stingers
    so back in the 1960's you cleaned every time you shot
    i thought that i read sometime in the 70's that they changed the ammo
    so
    Question - how often should I clean my new P22 after shooting?
    every 500 or 1000 rounds, or what?

    I clean my guns every time after I shoot them. Clean ammo, dirty ammo, doesn't matter to me.

    Hell, I clean them sometimes if I'm bored.

    I clean mine about ever 400-500ish rounds... or if I don't shoot one in a while.

    Eh...to each his own. My .22's, I generally clean em when they start jamming or I just plain feel like cleaning em. The rest,as need be also, unless they go back to the safe.

    Cleaning? Are they supposed to be cleaned?


    Actually, I'm with Gunerd. I only clean my 22's to keep them functioning. A long time ago, I cleaned all my guns after each range session. I used to enjoy cleaning them almost as much as shooting them. Not so much anymore.

    thanks james nm - i also used to do it every time but now i just don't see the point
    every 500 rounds sounds like a good idea
    thanks

    I don't put greasey wrenches in my tool box and I don't put a gun up dirty. A tools a tool. I guess it depends how you look at things.

    Also, Those brushes can do more harm than good. So, just don't over do it.

    This is the way it works and is suppose to be this way for a reason. If you own a 22 you clean it 22 times a year. If you own a 9 you clean it 9 times a year. That's why 9's are more popular than 45. The 500 mag is a pain. You almost have to clean it 2 times a day.

    It's just that simple. If you need anything else answered please don't hesitate to ask. That's what I'm hear for.

    I use a bore snake on my 22s, and field strip it every few trips to the range. I've never been comfortable inserting a cleaning rod into a 22, especially when it's almost the size of the bore.

    I clean them all when I'm done shooting. I'll clean them if they have been in the box for a while.

    I've heard the no need to clean so often for several calibers for a long time but I just can't do it. I don't think I could even sleep right if I put one up dirty. A gun is a tool..Tools work better clean

    Hey Spacedoggy, I think you're confused.

    That's the formula for how long you sit in time out.

    2 year old, 2 minutes.

    9 year old, 9 minutes.

    50 year old - 50 minutes. Don't forget to take a magazine with you ... or a gun to clean.

    WM
    Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
