Every 2-3k rounds.
Mineral spirits.
Bob Marvel oil, rem oil, moly lube for the hammer sear area but not a lot.
Take the gun apart and clean it in the mineral spirits. Dry it off with compressed air. Lightly coat with rem oil. Reassemble and put the Marvel oil on the rails, hood, bushing area. Moly grease on the hammer hooks. Then shoot.

If shooting lead I suggest using chore boy on a .50 cal brush to scrubb the lead out from the chamber end. It doesn't take much. Then dry patch clean.

Hope this helps...typing all that on the droid is a pain! LOL!

Best Regards,

Joe C

Before every match I remove the slide. Lock the link and lower lugs into a padded vice (so the slide still moves) and using the chore-boy brush technique scrub out the bore and patch it. Then I use q-tips and patches to remove the accumulated gunk in the slide and frame. Lightly oil with Ed's oil and reassemble. At the end of the outdoor and indoor seasons I do a total teardown and clean, but otherwise I try to avoid disassembling a precisely fitted instrument.

q-tip any visible gunk out and lightly oil the slide and frame. For the Rugers, scrub the bore religiously every 20-30,000 rounds. For the LSP bbls- a q-tip with solvent down the bore.
