    The 1911 is a battle proved pistol & many have gone countless numbers of rounds without cleaning.

    Personally I see nothing wrong with testing your pistol if you want to do it.

    You should still lubricate your frame/slide rails with a few drops of oil and especially should put a few occasional drops of oil on your barrel exterior to keep your barrel bushing from wearing due to abrasive grit build-up.

    I clean guns every time they are fired, and anytime they have sat idle for a while. It is not necessary, but it make me feel better. I can not sleep soundly knowing there is an uncleaned gun out there somewhere.

    I've seen a number of guns that I'm reasonably certain have never been cleaned and that continue to function. I'm never going to do that to a tool intended to be used in defense of my life or the lives of loved ones. I like cleaning my guns . It's a pleasant task for me and one that I do religiously after each use and often between uses. Keeps me in touch with my guns.
