Hi-Point Carbine Cleaning?
I finally picked up a Hi-Point 9mm carbine last week. I always walked past them at the gunshop but I have been wanting a pistol caliber carbine and I kept hearing lots of good things about these carbines and the company that builds them.
Anyhow, I'm wondering what cleaning and/or maintenance folks are doing on this weapon. I've heard of guys going a thousand rounds with little or no cleaning, some who only clean the bore and others who take the time to tear it down and do a "real" cleaning.
Like many non-military arms, this thing was not made to be taken apart without tools- not too complicated in my opinion but you have to unscrew a lot of bolts and screws and it doesn't seem like a good idea to do that too often.
Are 9mm Boresnakes long enough to use in a carbine?
Any advice and first-hand knowledge appreciated!
