How often do you clean your Glock? Once a month or 1000 rounds, etc?
Usually within a week after shooting it. Round count doesn't matter.
About every 500 rounds or so. Judgement call. Not too much, or too little.
Think about how often you'd wash your car. Certainly not every outing.
You're supposed to clean 'em...?
About every 3 or 4 range visits.
I wipe it down when done shooting, and give a few drops of lube every now and then. Don't often run a brush down the barrel?
Do you wipe our a new barrel or start shooting?
I personally clean a new barrel or gun before shooting it.
Some manufactures use everything from cosmoline like grease to oil in their new guns, glock doesn't and I if I had to fire a new Glock out of the box I would.
I also clean top end,strip slide after each use but that's just me,when I use my guns they always go Bang. SJ 40
After every range trip. Even if I only shoot a few rounds I will still clean it when I get home.
Usually when I get home from shooting it. No, it doesn't NEED to be cleaned nearly that often, but I like to take care of my things, and it's so easy on the Glock it only takes 10 mins or so to do a thorough clean.
Every time I visit the range.
Always same day.
Usually immediately after shooting.
Every few hundred rounds or so. Think the most I've gotten up too is 500 between cleanings.
I also clean before range trips, unless it's a safe queen. That way I know for sure I put everything back together right.
Typed from my iPhone with my thumbs!!
When in doubt I might go with what the Glock manual suggests. It suggests to clean and lubricate it before firing it the first time (but leave the copper colored ani-seize stuff on it.) It should be cleaned once a month, plus after it is fired plus when it is needed based on exposure to moisture, perspiration, a glacier, a dust storm, etc.
(Page 42 of the latest Glock manual I have dated 03/10.)
I am thinking the manual with the first new gun I got three decades ago essentially suggested the same thing.
I will plead guilty to not always cleaning after each firing a couple guns I have that are used pretty much solely for the range, however any gun I carry I tend to adhere to that basic rule.
I clean mine every time I shoot it. I'm OCD about keeping a clean gun. My wife says she wishes I keep the house ad clean as I keep my Glocks....
Where have I heard that before,a thousand times ! SJ 40
After every range trip. Not Nex that day but before it is shot again.
I clean all my guns immediately after shooting, or at least at the first opportunity if not just going to the range.
Even when they dont get fired, they still get regularly maintained, even to the point of daily maintenance, depending on the circumstances.
I never understood why people dont, especially with something youre planing on using to protect yourself with.
Usually that evening after a trip to the range. Sometimes the next day.
I'm another OCD gun owner. Bc you asked about my glocks is reason to go home & clean them.
+1 for a field strip cleaning including nylon brush down the bore after each range visit.
Full strip slide and lower every 1000 rounds or so just to clear the soot/grime, easy to do and only takes about 15 min a gun (Glock 17 & Glock 26)
Never ever have I had a malfunction.
It also gives you a chance to visually inspect for any wear & tear.
After a trip to the range or, the next day.
