You don't ever "have to" clean a 22. However, if you were taught by your dad or grandpa or drill instructor to clean, clean, clean, then yes, do it. Read the instructions manual and watch Rugers youtube videos on it.
The only tricky part is retracting the recoil spring and holding it to get the bolt back in in.
A bore snake is great for the 10 22. Keeps from having to worry about damaging the crown on your barrel.
