    Glock or belt-fed, whats it matter? You either clean the gun properly or not. Single shots, Glocks, squirt guns, whatever, mine all get cleaned the same.

    I know a lot of people seem to have differing ideas as to what "clean" is, but its either clean or its not. ;)

    One of my old worn out XXXL T shirts, and a pair of scissors makes me about a 2 year supply of patches and gun leaning rags.

    Let’s see-run a brush down the bore then an hoppes soaked mop followed a clean mop.

    I’m not shooting corrosive ammo out of a Glock so I’m not as concerned. The belt feds on the other hand...yeah those will have more concern.

    I am an old gun-nut...been at this now for 53 yrs...have never purchased store-bought patches...every old athletic sock or old white T-shirt I own has been cut into patches...heck, I even used to sell baggies of them on my table at the gun shows

    I buy these on amazon. They have a variety of sizes (I use 3" for my 12GA, 2.5 for 9mm, and then some tiny .22 ones for my 22's. You can also get different amounts, small package or bulk...

    Theres generally a bit more to it than that, if you actually want to clean and re-lube any of them. Corrosive or not.

    My one buddy used to literally throw his UZI in the dishwasher after shooting corrosive ammo, and then he cleaned it. I just stripped my MAC and dunked it in a sink full of hot soapy water, and rinsed it, then cleaned and lubed it. My old lady wasnt having it in the dishwasher. :)

    I didnt shoot corrosive out of my MP5 or MP40, but they, like anything else, were always cleaned after shooting.

    I guess I don’t know how to clean a firearm then. Guess completely taking them apart and using qtips, gun scrubber (or brake clean in a pinch) brushes and mops. But I must be an amature and yet my guns run 110%

    To each there own

    Lets be somewhat real here. NOTHING runs 100%, let alone 110%. ;)

    Theyre your guns, do what you feel best.
