    Every gun every time. Darn Army brainwashing.

    When I was young and shot it every day, I cleaned it in the Fall before squirrel season and in the Spring before gopher season. Now, I store it most of the year and clean it whenever I put it away. When shooting on the school pistol team, I cleaned my competition pistol daily so carbon buildup wouldn't cause a missfire.

    No matter what or when I shoot, I always like to clean It before putting it away/storing it.

    Christian, streack,
    A wipe down is all it needs. A 22 bullet has lube applied at the factory on the bullet. The 22 bullet doesn't have enough velocity even without the lube to bore foul your barrel with lead.
    Check your groups now after you've cleaned it with a bristle brushed barrel, then after 1000 rounds check again, see which is better. And I'm talking about the bore.

    about every 200-300 rounds. Or every time I take it out in the snow or rain.

    I give mine a quick clean after each use but only strip it down about once a year.

    A couple times a year depending on usage, just a bore snake and a little hoppes on the bolt actions, I take apart the 10/22 actions as needed to remove fouling.

    I clean mine about every third time I use it, It only takes a few minutes to wipe the action down and swab out the barrel.

    I know this is going to sound really dumb but I don't clean it very often. The reason is I don't shoot it too much, mabey 20 or 30 rounds here and there.

    I have a Marlin .22 rifle that has been cleaned after every use for at least 50+ years ... it was my mom's. Very accurate. I picked up a Winchester Model 52 a few years back that looked like the barrel was lead lined - also very accurate, so I left it be. Go figure.

    wills,
    Clean your 22 as you like but do not use a barrel brush, as in the bristle type! The 22 does not need that type of cleaning and accuracy will only be ruined until another 500 rounds can be put through it. Scrubbing a 22 rifle or hand gun barrel is disastrous. If you think your barrel has gotten dust or moisture in it then use a swab of hoppe's #9. No bristle brush ever in a 22.
