    well late last night i got a bug up my ass to totaly tear down my rifle and do a complgte cleaning on it. normaly i just clean the barrel, wipe and lube the bolt up and slap it back together. well i only have about 1000 rounds though the gun

    well i took teh bolt all apart last night. and saw this

    a very nasty looking firing pin :ugh:

    so now the gun is totaly clean and all lubed up :bigthumb:


    but its no wonder this gun would jam, if you dont strip the gun all the way down and clean out ALL the parts of course your gonna have jamming issues

    yeah. you should field strip and clean everything every 300-500 rounds. any sooner, and you're wearing things out by cleaning too often, any later and you're wearing things out by letting dirt and powder build up and rub against stuff.

    you may want to lube certain spots after 300, even if you don't clean. that's what i do. a spot of clp in strategic locations after two range trips, then clean after the third.

    probably not a bad idea. but remember that oil collects dirt, so too much can be as bad or worse than too little.
