    Ok, cool. Just run a bore brush through it, use some BreakFree CLP or other cleaner until you tear it apart. When you are ready to do that, let me know, I can help you out.
     
  6. It's easy, though not the normal teardown routine:

    First, you don't do it often (as many others have pointed out). Wait for 2-3k rounds .

    And, secondly, it's not that hard, even when you feel compelled to do it. It takes a $3 set of Home Depot punches, and fifteen minutes start to finish. If you're clumsy :D

    But, most importantly, the normal post-range cleanup is much easier than with most firearms: squirt with gun lube and you're done. In the long term, HPs make;]
