    How often would one recommend the taking apart and cleaning of a glock pistol?

    I have put close to 1500 rounds threw 4 mags and haven't even really thought about it yet. But that's just me

    I stand corrected. For some odd reason i thought u meant the clips. I usually do I quick cleaning or the exterior after every shooting. And do a complete take down cleaning after the 4th or 5th.

    Magazines do get dirty.

    ALTHOUGH I've never experienced a glock brand magazine failure. I have NEVER cleaned a Glock mag, and I shoot my G34 alot more than most of you shoot at all.

    Have you dropped it in the mud or some chocolate syrup? Then you should probably clean it. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it. The average shooter won't run into problems resulting from a Glock dirty mag; that is assuming you stay away from non-jacketed lead ammo and super dirty russian ammo.

    I only clean my mags when there is an absolute need, like if shooting a stage where the magazines fall in mud or dirt. However, I can say its wise to clean the mags at least once a year......which i haven't done, I must confess.I have some dedicated magazines used for holding my carry rounds which I do not mix with my sport training magazines.

    If I'm not mistaken, the glock manual suggests mag cleaning every 4-5 months, I believe. I dont have it right here next to me.
