    Im sure the people who never clean their arms pay no attention to how badly they are neglecting them.

    Ask someone who never does maintenence on their car how many miles their oil change is over. They will say "I dont know, I dont keep a car long enough to worry about it".

    Interesting question but frankly, it’s like asking how long do you go before brushing your teeth?

    let me rephrase... how many rounds without a malfunction. I know glocks work without a good clean for thousands of rounds. How do snubbies hold up?

    I always clean after a range session, so I can't touch the record.

    For a snubbie, I can't exactly say. But, I have shot 250 rounds thru a S&W 686 in one range session before. After the first 150, it starts to get pretty dirty. The last 25, the cases are tough to extract. I've not put enough rounds thru one to seize it up. With revolvers though, its all about conservation of rounds and quality hits. Comparing one to a pistol is apples and oranges.

    BTW, I think if I put that many rounds thru a snubbie in one sitting, I'd probably do temporary damage to my hand.

    while many weapons are "safe" to shoot up into the hundreds or thousands of rounds, I just clean after each time I shoot, could be 20 rounds, could be several hundred, through a revolver it all depends on how close the spacing is between the cylinder and the forcing cone, the closer it is the more power you will have but the easier it could cause the cylinder to bind against the face of the forcing cone stopping rotation and effectively disabling the weapon. It will be different for each design and the individual tolerances.

    In my opinion cleanliness is next to godliness when it comes to firearms, each gets a field-strip and wipe-down after each range session and once a week to remove lint and such from carrying, run through with dental tools every 6 months and a complete disassemble and boiled in water once a year.
    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

    Fire once Clean Fire again Clean To much work. LOL

    I clean mine after each range trip. The 642 gets to ugly if I don't clean it.

    I think the most I've ever done is two range sessions and about 50-75 rounds without cleaning my stainless Rugers.

    Always cleaned after each shooting session except for the time I knew I was shooting again 3 days later.

    I usually shoot lead swc in the revolver for target shooting so I want them cleaned up pretty quickly to keep the lead and powder getting baked on along the forcing cone, top strap, barrel and cylinder face.

    I think the most I ever put through my LCR was 100 on a nice spring day at the range. Then it's off to cleaning. I don't think I ever put more than 100-150 through any of my guns without a cleaning in-between.

    Dick Metcalfe did a 5000 round torture test on a couple of S&W Airweights using +P ammo and neither gun suffered any damage.

    I believe that the Ruger LCR went through a factory 10,000 torture test with +P & it survived.

    No records here...if I shoot 'em, I clean 'em.
