    Hey Rich inKansas,
    Thanks for the info! You are right, that name rang a bell, and that is the guy I sent a check to...guess he moved before it got there. Now am glad it did not get cashed. Anyhow, no big deal after I read the link. Methinks i will pass!

    I have an Anschutz 64MPR. The instructions from Anschutz says not to clean till 10,000 rounds! I never have, just run a bore snake through to get out anything big and that's it.
    I figure Anschutz knows better than I so I'll listen to them. Still shoots as tight today as when it was new too.

    I've a Marlin 60SS with a thousand or two+ rounds thru it, whose bore I have _never_ cleaned, since around 1991 or so. It is factory stock, except for the Marble's short "BULLSEYE" rear sight. Oh, and I did stone the bolt to slick up the action.

    If I had to bug out with one rifle? I'd take this one and two bricks of subsonic ammunition; it is that good. And it is stainless with a laminate stock. Good to go in any weather, and light. Deadly at 100 yards or more. And, dudes?

    ---> I've got all manner of rifles.

    I've cleaned the action a couple of times.

    And the last time I shot it off the bags with a "BULLSEYE" newly mounted rear sight? I put 50 rounds into the size of a quarter at 50 feet (the length of that rimfire range.) The factory front sight and hood worked just great with that new rear.

    If I ever get around to putting a hole in the back of the receiver for a cleaning rod, I might try to clean the barrel. Then again, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?"

    If you shoot it , clean it....22 are dirty to say the least... Lead is an animal that builds up fast.... A few years ago I started JB bore pasting my bores after the first firing and have had beond good results on factory barrels... This is only an opinion , so it cost nothing.... But in any factory barrels I will stick with it.... How and when to clean a barrel is up to you... It is pure opinion because every barrel and every gun is different even in centerfire....
