I detail stripped a used Sig P250SC 9mm. I only did this because it was used, and I wanted to inspect and replace parts as necessary. IMO, detail stripping a pistol depends on three factors:
1. Your level of mechanical inclination.
2. Your level of common sense.
3. Your ability to interpret an exploded view diagram.
Your second question on frequency...
I only detail strip a pistol when it's absolutely necessary. "Necessary" to me means when the round count on a pistol reaches the point where springs need to be replaced or when dirt/debris causes malfunctions. For example if the firing pin channel gets crudded up causing light primer strikes...if the trigger feels gritty even after flushing it out...
