    Cleaning, how often should I clean my 22s?

    How often should I clean my .22?. Currently I run the bore snake through after every range day. I clean my .22 rifle and .22 handguns about every third session with G96 treatment and patches.

    There is no right or wrong. Comes down to whatever you feel is necessary. I personally only clean when I start having issues.
    April 8th, remember 22 Bravo. Take a min to remember the Fallen.

    Over cleaning wears out a gun faster than bullets do.

    Bolt every few hundred especially on the old semi's, barrel at a about 1000

    I usually do the same. If you enjoy cleaning them you can do it as much as you like, but generally it comes down to:

    Has it gotten wet/muddy?
    Is it acting up, having issues?
    Do i feel like it and have the time?
    Has it been more than a year or two since i cleaned it last?
