since I shot my new M40 2 weeks ago and had not cleaned it Tonight after having gone to the range and shot my new Walther I had the time to clean both guns. very similar in terms of ease to take it down. I hosed the gun out using brake parts cleaner, then scrubbed the bore. I decided just for the heck of it to remove the extractor and make sure she was nice and clean as well as lubed. Putting it back is harder than removal :lol: , but isn't that always the case. I had almost forgot how nice cleaning a modern handgun can be. I'm big into 1911's and that's what I carry on duty. I want to qualify with my Styer and have a Safariland holster on order but I may have to wait until October :? I also want to qualify with a Walther but such is life. All in all an easy 15 minutes to get the gun cleaned and lubed. She's ready for the next range session.
