How Often Should You Clean Your Firearm

There is a lot of controversy over when you should clean your firearms. While a lot of the discussion may come down to personal preference and orderliness, we have to keep the main purpose in mind. A dirty firearm can most certainly effect the way a firearm functions. A dirty magazine can cause failure to feed malfunctions. Failure to feed refers to the inability for a cartridge to enter the chamber. A dirty extractor can cause problems with casing extraction. Improperly oiled internals can wreak havoc on trigger operation. If any of these things happen to you in a deadly force situation it could prove catastrophic. Additionally, rust can form on parts of your firearm from being in contact with perspiration. We all know rust and firearms don’t mix. When caring for your firearm, preventive maintenance is always easier than having to do a major cleaning.

Whenever you fire any ammo with corrosive loads, it’s definitely time to clean afterwards. Most modern ammunition doesn’t fall into this category, but older military surplus ammo most likely does. Corrosive loads leave behind chemicals that will eat away at the metal in your guns, which is not good. Another situation is if you choose to shoot cheap ammo. This type of ammo usually has dirty loads that leave behind a lot more residue in your barrel when fired. Medium to more expensive ammo will usually shoot cleaner these days. The more gunk you have in your barrel over time can begin to eat away at the metal.

Of course, any time you put a lot of rounds of any sort through your firearm, you will definitely be due for a cleaning. Even if it’s high quality ammo, over many rounds there’s no way to avoid collecting gunk in the firearm.

Cleaning your firearms after every time you shoot is probably impractical for most of us. Most would recommend cleaning your firearm after a certain number of rounds. Some firearms are better at functioning dirty and some ammunition leaves more debris, making your gun dirtier than others. A safe happy median would be to clean your firearm every 250 or so rounds. You can’t over clean your firearm, and if you desire to clean it every time you shoot it, you won’t be doing any harm. 

Cleaning Procedures and Safety

• Always check to make sure your gun is unloaded before cleaning.
• Inspect your gun as you clean. Check your firearms for wear and cracks when you clean. Consult a qualified gunsmith for any necessary repairs.
• Don't disassemble your gun more than necessary. Refer to owners manuals for instructions. Only disassemble gun to the point needed to reach areas where powder residue and fouling accumulate (bore, chamber, bolt, etc.).


• Use a vise to secure your firearm to save time and work.
• When using Pro-Shot 1-Step Gun Cleaner & Lubricant, let the solvent set for 15 minutes so the penetrating agents and additives can break down and lift up fouling.
• The jag is the most superior way to remove fouling from the bore because it gives the patch constant pressure against the bore when cleaning versus dragging a patch through the bore with a patch holder.
• Use the appropriate size brush or jag. Our brushes' and jags' are caliber specific.
• We recommend the use of a muzzle guard and bore guide to center rods and to reduce fouling from entering the action.

3. Never take anyone's word that the firearm is unloaded.

4. Always make sure that the firearm is not loaded before laying it down or handing it over

to another person.

5. Always store or carry your firearm empty, with the striking mechanism forward except when you intend to shoot.

6. Never abuse the firearm by using it for any purposes other than shooting.

7. Never leave a firearm unattended.

8. Prior to loading the firearm ensure the barrel, chamber, and action are clean and clear of obstructions. If the firearm becomes excessively dirty during firing clean it immediately. Always clean the firearm after use.

9. Do not shoot the pistol, unless you are certain about the ammunition you are using. Do not use unmarked or hand-loaded ammunition from an unknown source, ammunition with a cracked, deformed or dented case or with a damaged bullet. Reloading is an expert activity and incorrectly reloaded ammunition may be extremely dangerous. It may result in heavy damage or destruction of the pistol and serious injury or death of the shooter or other persons. Always use clean and dry original high quality commercially manufactured ammunition, which corresponds to the caliber of the firearm.

10. Never drink alcohol or take drugs before and during shooting.

11. Whenever practical always wear safety glasses and ear protection while shooting.

12. Always keep the safety applied when the pistol is loaded with a cartridge in the chamber, until you are ready to fire. Keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction when disengaging the safety.

18. Never indulge in "horseplay" while holding the firearm.

19. Failure to fire: In case it fails to fire, hold the firearm keeping it pointed in a safe direction and wait 30 seconds. If a hang fire (slow ignition) has occurred, the cartridge will fire within 30 seconds. If the cartridge does not fire, eject the cartridge and examine it. If the firing pin indent on the cartridge is light, or non-existent, have the firearm examined by a competent gunsmith.

20. Always make sure the firearm is not loaded before cleaning, storing or travelling. Remove any unused ammunition from the pistol and store it in compliance with the law.

21. Always keep and store your firearm and ammunition in separate secure locations out of reach and sight of children and unauthorized people. Always protect the ammunition from sources of heat and open fire.

22. Never alter any parts of your firearm; the safety and proper function of your firearm could be seriously affected.

23. Always be aware that corrosion, use of damaged ammunition, dropping the firearm on hard surfaces or other "rough treatment" can cause damage that is not necessarily obvious at first sight. If something like this happens, have the firearm examined and tested by a competent gunsmith.
