AW, these guys that have already responded are right. AK's are like cars, the factory tells you the service intervals, & you ignore it & do it when it becomes critical. These guns are so unlike all the ones I've had over the years. I was trained to clean after every shoot, I've done it for years. My local range operator rents full auto 47's & 74's told me a few days ago, he hasn't cleaned them in 2 years, just run an oil patch through the bore every couple of weeks. With my AR's, I still do it every time out, the AK's, I am up to a week after an outing. I'm either making progress, or backsliding, not sure which. I'm sure this reply didn't help at all, but that's what I'm here for. If you need to see the complete breakdown of the rifle, check out Romanianklishnikovrifles.com, great tutorials there. :sniper:AmericanWarrior said:Could some one post a link to a site with good field strip and cleaning instructions? Or if you have the time make a step by step that would be great to.
Just bought my SAR-1 and would like to know the proper way to clean it.
