I have a M40-A1, I've put maybe a couple hundred rounds through it. I've only ever done the basic field strip as shown in the owner's manual. Right now I'm deployed to Afghanistan and they wouldn't let me take any of my own, nice guns. I have to make do with a beat up M16. But, when I get back, should I follow the walkthroughs that are on the site here and do a complete detail strip? I'm pretty mechanically inclined and am not afraid of taking it apart. I've helped my dad detail strip his Mauser broomhandles with no walkthrough to guide me and have detail stripped my 1911 regularly with walkthroughs. Just wondering if it's necessary or if the pistol will be fine doing a normal field strip and thorough cleaning.
