    I have a pro carry II. I watched this video and was wondering if my pro carry will tear down the same as it. I have shot 150 rounds so far and have not field cleaned it..

    don't clean it until 500 rounds or until you get a failure ;)

    Thanks Quack for the advice...would still like to tear it down just to get myself familar with the gun...so I'll tear it down and put it back together...wait a couple hundred more rounds to clean it up...

    Why, I can see the failure part but why the 500 rounds?

    because that's the magical round count that Kimber and others recommend :animlol:

    from the manual, though they recommend every 100-150 rounds for cleaning.

    Wilson recommends not cleaning after 500 rounds, just oil.
    the oil and powder residue will form a slurry to burnish the frame/slide rails to give it a smooth fit.

    I believe Baer also recommends the same thing.
