It would be okay to clean and lube the bore, and chamber. Lubing the bore could help the life of the barrel. Every once in a while check the firing pin channel.

It would be a lot of oiled cleaning patches you would have to run through that Hi-Point carbine barrel before you were not getting black carbon on the cleaning patches anymore. That firearm is full of carbon.

I have only shot a few hundred rounds through a firearm at most before cleaning all of them. Treat your investments with respect. :D

You should see how many you can put through before your first malfunction. That would be an interesting experiment.
I am probably a bit shy of where he is for round count.
I am at 11 or 1200 with no issues, I was trying to see where Hi-Point says to clean it as I think it was 1500 rounds.
I tend to follow the manufacturers recommendations as their engineers design and test them.
One of my friends takes his apart and cleans them for no reason....I dont have enough time for that!

I clean mine after every trip, myself. I just hate to put away dirty guns. My guess about why Hi Point recommends a large cleaning interval is because of the risk of little parts, like sears and trigger bar connectors either falling out or becoming misaligned. For the pistols, there is also the possibility of the hole accommodating the role pin getting wallowed out from too much removal and insertion of the pin.

That's the best guess I have, at least. Cic or Swagz would probably have some sort of insider information about it.

SO Why do they call them assault rifles and not an assault carbines? :D
He SHOOTS, He SCORES!!!

(answer is cuz they are dumb lib-turds and don't know the diff between anything firearm related) Shoulder Thing that GOES UP, "disposable clipazines", Doomberg ad where the complete cartridge is coming out of the barrel :rotfl:

Technically speaking anything under a 20" barrel is considered a carbine, anything over 20" is considered a rifle unless specifically called a carbine by the manufacturer, and they're all considered rifles...

There are also rifles with under 20" barrels that the manufacturer doesn't call a carbine.

And the word carbine is derived from the French word for the riflemen who chopped their full size rifles down to be easy to use while mounted. Carabinier...

So in typical gun culture, it's clear as mud.
