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.

I had several Glocks for years and the 1911 was always a games gun. I then decided to carry a 1911 on duty.

As the years go by lighter, more corrosion resistant and higher capacity become more attractive. Not to mention the ease of stripping. I end up getting in and out of the car a lot even in bad weather.

Besides I have over $1200.00 in my Colt, I would rather screw up an under $300.00 Steyr, or if it gets taken from me for evidence it's a lot easier on the budget.
