      How often do you have your Glock..

      Fully taken apart and cleaned? Is it critical to have the trigger assembly taken out along with the normal stuff.....often. Or is that saved for a special occassion.....like once a year or something?

      Thanks

      I've never had my Glock fully disassembled, but that's what I thought air compressors were for.

      I think it'd be fun from the educational side of things to break it down that far, but I can get it spicky-span clean just as easy without tearing it down all the way. A little cleaning fluid, a brush and an air compressor usually gets rid of anything that will matter.

      Zhur, in WY doesn't that mean opening up a window and sticking your gun out to let the air blow it clean. J/K

      Been on the western side of WY so many times I can't count them and high winds never seem to be a problem.

      I have a G23 and every other time cleaning I hose down the inaccessible places with Birchwood Casey Synthetic Safe Gun Scrubber.

      It is alchohol based and does not leave a residue and will not harm the plastic parts. I take the pistol to the garage and spray it out over a trash can because it really stinks up the house.

      There are 2 versions of the Gun Scrubber so make sure it is the Synthetic Safe one you use on the Glock other wise you may have some problems.

      No kidding!! My dad used to say there was no need for "air conditioning" in cars... they all had 2x60 AC anyways... 2 windows down at 60 mph... good enough for us kids back in the day. Next time you are headed to the SW corner... send me a PM... we'll go shooting.

      I agree. Only times I ever break down my Glocks beyond the basic maintenance is when I'm swapping out parts or triggers.

      I do a field strip and clean after every shooting and a full detail clean every six months.

      Full detail-strip cleaning is done:

      - when trigger action gets sticky/gritty
      - when firing pin will no longer move freely when action is dry-fired, trigger is held to the rear, and weapon is shaken front-to-back
      - when weapon is detail-stripped for parts repair/replacement
      - every 2000 rounds
      - every two years or so (usually happens long before this, based on the other criteria)

      Wasn't sure.....I have seen a couple of guys say that they don't clean their Glocks at all but every couple thousand rounds.

      Who carries the Synthetic Safe Gun Scrubber. I get the regular Gun Scrubber at Wal-Mart.
