Gave my C9 its first bath at 2K rounds. It started having a few FTE and knew I would feel guilty if I just gave it a few drops of oil like I've done in the past. Gave it a field strip cleaning, not a total tear down. (FYI, I always snake with a cleaner and 2nd snake with oil after every shooting.)

I got some break cleaner to have on hand as suggested in other posts but I did not need it. It cleaned up just fine with gun cleaner (M-Pro 7 cleaner) and a toothbrush. That cleaner is not a harsh solvent so I mopped it on, gave it a bit of brushing time and rotated from slide to receiver to parts and back again a few times. Wiped dry and gave it all some gun oil (M-Pro 7 oil).

Had it out this week. Back to its old self. Yea!

Question; So all the parts I can see and reach now look pristine and the C9 is working great. Any reason I need to go beyond a field strip cleaning and tear it down to it's component parts? (Yes, drops of oil went into those invisible areas.)

Go deeper and remove the grips if you want to clean the LRHO, trigger assembly and mag safety. That's pretty much all you missed.

Its not a 1911, take it apart and check for wear.
You may want to swap out springs and firing pin.
