    BYW Don't do this! This Aklys Pilum has 1000 rounds without at least a disassembly to break up build up....

    Welcome Joe!

    Ive got ~3000 or so through this one with no cleaning so far. Starting to see some lead and carbon buildup, but it still sounds good and baffles are still easy to take out. Just going to keep shooting and see how long it takes to affect performance.

    Yessir. And thanks! We are kind of nerds when it comes to machined components and finish.

    Im Zach, we talked briefly saturday towards the end of the shoot. We wish you could have been there sunday, since it was almost completely suppressed shooting only, but i understand you guys had a hurricane to deal with. That integral pistol for Chad looks awesome!

    1000's on my Spectre 2. It's stainless, so let it sit in "the dip."

    Few hundo on my Arc 22's. Can't "dip" aluminum, so I keep those pretty clean and wiped down.

    As far as the hosts, I don't clean unless they start to suffer in reliability.

    Finally cleaned my Buckmark host as it quit working. Got about a 22 bullet's worth of carbon out of the gun. The SpectreII wasn't that bad; but cleaned it since it was apart. I cleaned my integral and it took about an hour as it hasn't been cleaned in a while. We shot a 525 pack and about 1/3 of another one just that day. Outer tube took a lot of effort to get off with all the buildup inside of it. It was still working fine; just needed to be cleaned. KGMade EOS is a much nicer setup, but they weren't around when I got mine.
