everytime i shoot them i clean them. the blued ones get wiped down about every 2-3 weeks with a oiled cloth. the parkerized ones get a wipe about every couple of months. they all live in a gunsafe except for my home defense weapons which get cleaned every 2 weeks.

pisses the wife off when i clean em in front of the TV watching pawn stars on monday nite.

Plinking guns are cleaned every so ofter, depending on number of rounds down range. Work rifle and handgun cleaned after each range time. If I don't got to the range much (winter time) I clean them at lest every 3 months. I oil the handgun every few weeks between cleanings. I am with the others that believe I might not get a second chance to clean my duty guns. One bad round or miss fire could be the end of me and not the bad person that wants to hurt me.

I clean every trip. I have a mark 3 also and hate taking it apart so it gets a boresnake and I just brush out the action. When the trigger starts feeling gritty I take it down. If I haven't shot one for a month or so I spray oil on a piece of sheepskin and wipe it down. We can't carry here except at the range.
