The best policy for keeping your gun clean and taking good care of it is to clean it after every single usage. If you really want to be sure that your gun functions properly every time, your best bet is to clean it before you put it away.

Recommendations for Cleaning

To be really thorough, you should break down the gun so that most of the parts can receive some attention. Always check your owner’s manual to learn how far to strip your gun and for special cleaning instructions. If you’re short on time, you can get away with taking back the slide and giving the barrel a good cleaning, preferably with a product that we sell called ‘QMAXX.’ We like to recommend this product because it cleans, lubricates, and preserves your gun, and that’s what you should always be looking for at cleaning time.

If you’re doing the complete cleaning, you should also lubricate some of the smaller moving parts and the slide itself to keep them in good working order and preserve their long operational life. When you’re doing this, be careful not to over-lube though, because it isn’t necessary, and excess can build up over time and cause problems. Today’s guns are manufactured so that they don’t require a lot of lubrication, so you really should avoid going overboard
