    I clean my BCG every 434th round fired
    Now that's because I live north of the 31st Parraell

    I use Slip 2000 Carbon Killer. It completely removes lubrication from the gun and cleans all the gunk out. Then scrub with a brush and get it squeaky clean and re-lube everything. The BCG is a pretty quick clean.

    In days gone by I was religious about gun cleaning. Archiving a Zen like state while insuring Hoppes #9 was rubbed into every little thing. And listening to the radio.
    Today, not so much. Having lived 30+ years with a few guns, I've learned its just not necessary. A little crud here and there in non critical areas is no big deal. I now ensure safe and operational critical areas are cleaned and the rest can be dealt with when I feel like it.
    Working now to relearn what is critical to an AR

    If you are overseas with all that fine sand and you put too much lubricant in your weapon eventually you will have some liquid sandpaper. So it depends upon the conditions where you are at.
