+1 to what Smallgroups said. I haven't done a full strip-down in about 5 months, and the last time was only after going through a big rainstorm. No degrade in accuracy whatsoever.

Good friend of mine has a CZ 452 that he, quite literally, did not run anything through the bore but copper-washed lead for close to two years before the accuracy degraded enough for him to run a boresnake through it. He guessed there were anywhere from 1500 to 2000 rounds through it. I wouldn't suggest going that long if you plan on shooting groups or sighting scopes, but if you're not doing anything 'sides samll game hunting or plinking, you probably won't need to clean very often at all.
