Personally I make my guns spotless after each time I go to range to ensure maximum performance. That means no black on my barrel cloth or any q tips

Just like cleaning my ears when I go underground at the mines, no black on my q tip

Default how i clean my rifle,hand guns

i sent my remington 700 stainless fluted barrel in 308 to robar for there inside and outside coating,trigger job and accurizing.i clean the bore right after shooting/range,hunting.i never use a barrel brush,just run a patch with slip 2000 gun lube-let sit over night,run clean patch a few times with slip 2000 and barrel is spotless and lubed.i do the same with all my guns,rifles and pistols.the slip 2000 gun lube removes copper,lead better than anything else i have ever tried.i dont know how it works but it works,no running a barrel brush with solvent 20 times just to clean,wear out a barrel.i wipe down my guns with a lightly oiled cloth(same gun lube)and thats it.my rifle that has robar coating,i dont wipe down,after 20 years not a spot on it and i live in hawaii.

I clean mine ever 4 months or whenever fired. Since I own so many it takes a few days to clean them all.

My guns stay clean all the time. I just clean them after the range, other wise they stay in my gun case.

I try to clean mine after the range but I'm not always successful. But when I do get to them I use a little lube and a boresnake just in case there's any fouling. But since all my target loads are FMJ I never see any residue from the slugs, after the bore snake I swab the actions and the barrels with a little Hoppes and I'm ready to go again, that is after I rob a bank to pay for the ammo

I clean as soon as I'm thru shooting and I check the safe contents and clean and oil anything that needs it every 6 months.

For all my gun barrels now I run a wet patch with Butch's Bore Shine,then a brush, then a wet patch, then a dry patch.I use the dry patch for my oil patch as it usually comes out clean, then another dry patch.

I've never found anything I like as well, and wish I had found Butch's sooner, I hate to think how many patch's I could have saved over the years.It is nasty smelling though.

Default Cleaning

I clean everytime I fire my guns, and then I also try to clean my guns once per month if they are not fired.

I use a silicone cloth for the outside of the receivers and the stock, and I use CLP, Tetra Grease, and Hoppes oil.

Shotguns I clean almost always after I fire sometimes I'll wait a week to see if I'll use it again in immediate future. Rifles and handguns always after I shoot them.
