(2)What gun do you like but detest cleaning almost enough to off it.

I needed utube to clean a Ruger Mark I I acquired and promptly sold it.
I haven't decided on the #2 firearm, yet!

Mine would be my 20ga Remington 870. Last time I was skeet shooting with it it started to rain on us so I took it all apart, cleaned and lubercated it. It was very difficult to reinstall the bolt and trigger group.

Smile Can I play , too ?

I just keep shooting 'til the gun don't work . Colt ACE will go about 150 rounds ; ARs go about 200 'til they crud up . Smith revolvers , centerfire , go many hundreds : the rimfires go as few as 24 (twenty four ) until the chambers are so filthy that you cannot seat a new round . Glocks run forever .

The 870 is one of the easiest guns to take down and put back together. 5 minutes tops to strip on, clean and oil it and back together. You just lay the bolt assy on top of the two arms, and slide it in and the trigger group just drops into place and two pins to hold it in. Now for the trigger, that hammer needs to be cocked down into place before you can just drop it in. Don't give up on it. Keep trying. Super super easy once you know which piece goes in first. Once you do it a couple more times, it will be your easiest gun to strip down and reassemble.

I clean guns for customers all the time.

I don't clean my guns.

I don't "detest" cleaning any firearm.
YouTube vids are good to show proper cleaning procedures.
If you don't know how to clean one - Read or see instructions!

If you get to the point of "detesting" proper cleaning,
Sell it to some that want's it.

PS: If you don't know you know - Read or see instructions!

A Massachusetts Militia issued 1800s Fowler flint lock. I've never cleaned it.

Don't mind cleaning any of the others, including a Ruger MKlll.

Make sure you check those old flint locks for loaded. 95% of the old Great-grand-pappy black powder rifles hanging on hooks were stored loaded.... If the cleaning rod stops an inch or 3 from bottom - you know it's loaded....

I have jettisoned all the impossible to clean rifles... Winchester semi-auto centerfire rifles are perhaps the world's worst in terms of being completely impossible to reassemble if you ever make the mistake of taking one apart - followed by a Browning A5/Remington 11.... BOING and springs go flying everywhere and parts end up stuck in the ceiling......

For me, though - the one I will "never clean again" is Grandpa's old double barrel shotgun. It's a wall hanger now - the barrels are BADLY corroded at the rib... It will probably blow up the next time it is fired. So it gets oiled and put up - but that's it.

The only gun of mine that has never been cleaned is a Colt's 1861 Special contract rifle musket. The reason it has never been cleaned is that it has never been fired.
