    As per topic, I am looking for information on how often I need to DETAIL CLEAN my glock 27.

    Before I learned the proper cleaning procedure for my glock, I apparently thought it was a good idea to lube my firing pin housing (if that's the proper name for the area inside the slide that the firing pin mechanism is contained in) I found out later this is NOT GOOD for the mechanism, or the gun.

    Should I detail clean it now? Have it professionally detail cleaned?

    If it is something I can do myself, anyone have a link of a how to video?

    And when you get really good, you can clean it while shooting it!

    i like the part when he says he already check the gun for safety and then a round falls out, not to mention let me look down the barrel first then do the "pencil test" LOL what a freaking idiot, even if i was supposed to be a joke guns arent funny

    Buy the special toothbrushes meant for cleaning guns. They last much longer.
