I don't know if i'm just anal retentive, misinformed or what but I some how got the idea a gun shouldn't be "dirty" and iIhav always cleaned mine right after shooting; any range time no matter how few rounds are fired brings out the patches and hoppes.. (I think I got into this habit shooting cheap dirty rimfire as a kid.)( andin the military). reading the saiga thread and a few others I see some folks clean way less than that.. Shooting corrosive surplus in the Enfield, I know it needs to be cleaned asap , What about you guys how often do you clean yours ? ?
