Cleaning Handguns: Anyone Got one They Hate

I don't particularly like cleaning guns anyways (there's a reason I like SS guns), but I HATE cleaning my Ruger 22/45. That little POS has so many sharp edges and burrs inside I don't think I've cleaned it without bleeding. And the order of operations to get the thing reassembled is obnoxious too.

Invert, thumb on trigger blah blah.

My hands are currently bleeding from this little monster. I like it so much I clean it every 500-1000 rounds or so...whether it needs it or not.

I have plenty...and I don't find they do so much.

My Kahr K9 isnt the easiest piece to clean, so it doesnt get shot too much. The easiest one I have is a Thompson Center Arms Contender... Just break open the breach and run a few patches through, or a bore snake is even quicker..

Yeah, when I get my reloading bench set-up, IF I like messing around with weird cartridges, I'll get one of those.

A friend has one in all sorts of weird chamberings.

I hate cleaning my 10/22. Its not that bad, just hate to unscrew the stock to clean it. It was given to me by a friend who hated to clean it so much, that it felt like it had sand in it from the grit. I think he gave it away, rather than clean it.

Re: Cleaning Handguns: Anyone Got one They Hate

Now that rifles have been added to the mix... AR15/M16s are not easy to get clean..not that it is that difficult once you've torn them down a few times...they just get dirty quick.

It's funny, I enjoy working on and cleaning my guns as much as I do shooting them.

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: Cleaning Handguns: Anyone Got one They Hate

10/22?

They're not bad at all.

Never broke down an AR. I've shot maybe 5-10 rounds total out of them.

Don't have much experience with different rifles (but tons with the 10/22!) so I left it out. But anything bolt action (like the contender) is super easy.

Some people love firearms maintanance. I don't...but I understand it. Trying to understand the dynamics of them is interesting.

Re: Cleaning Handguns: Anyone Got one They Hate

Easiest: Glock
Hardest: Those MF'er .22 Rugers like you said.

The only thing I almost dislike reassembling is a Garand. I'd rather do an AR, FAL, AK, etc any day of the week And I'm one of those sickos that likes cleaning guns.

Re: Cleaning Handguns: Anyone Got one They Hate

I was bleeding this morning and remembered our conversation...had to see if anyone else agreed.

EDIT: Of course, it's so much fun to shoot, I'll never sell it either.

Contender isnt a bolt action... it's a breach action....

Oops. He's right and they are very different.

I think you know what I meant, but terminology was definately off.
