Hello all. I've been a lurker for awhile, though I've had my 995 since Feb 08. I've put at least 200 rounds through it without a single failure to feed or a failure to fire. It shoots great and is an all round fun little rifle.

Now, I know that I really should clean it every time after coming back from the range, but a sadistic part of me has been wanting to see how long I can go without doing so. So far I haven't cleaned it since I received from SOG, call it 200 rounds without ANY cleaning. How long have you guys gone without cleaning, and have you noticed any problems with the carbine's operation?

My buddy has shot over 5,000 through over the past few years, no cleaning, and still no problems. I clean mine after every range trip, but that's just because I'm a bit anal about such things. In all likelyhood you'll probably break before the firearm does.

I clean my weapons after every outing and at least once a month regardless of whether they've been fired out not.
Excessive? Maybe.
Thorough? Damn right.

On both the 995 and 4095 I clean the barrel every 300 to 500 rounds. At about 1,000 I will disassemble and give them a through cleaning.

On a side note. When I received my used 4095 the bolt hold back did not work. I spent over one hour just to clean the barrel and an other hour to clean the rest of the gun. I was thinking that who ever had the gun before me never cleaned it.

I give it a good cleaning after every outing.
I have yet to take it apart & give it a thorough cleaning but I have only run about 400 rnds through it.

After every outing. I take off the top receiver, give it a good does of break free, a good workover, then re-lubricate and reassemble being careful not to over-torque the bolts.

Can't tell that I drive an Italian bike can you?

The difference is--you HAVE to do that with an Italian bike!
