Most rounds you have put downrange between cleaning?

Just curious.

If we're not talking ARs, 20k+ pretty easily in my 10/22.

me and a friend made a bet with a fellow about how long you could go without cleaning. i went an entire 3 gun season and half of the next with nothing but lube. shoot between 3500 to 4000 rounds with nothing but wolfe ammo. the gun was still feeding and ejcting but the bullets started tumbling. gave up and cleaned the gun, but never could get the barrel to shoot straight agian.

Well over 4000. I have also shot an AR with well over 20,000 documented rounds without cleaning.

Just over 800 in two days DPMS AR. 300 pistol. (I did let the two colt guys borrow it for a while so they could concentrate on training not clearning malfunctions)

998 of Wolf and 300 of xm193 in two days, lube only, 1 fail to feed with wolf, at around halfway mark, and 1 at end of case. S&W MP 15 and P-mags. I say FTF, but was actually 2 failures to go completely into battery, I ejected both rounds, and kept on chugging along.
Im assuming OP means with AR 15. Many, many more thru my .22s, Ive got a Marlin I inherited from my step dad, he never cleaned it, I used to shoot a brick a week, for years, and Ive never cleaned it, sprayed it down with brake cleaner and motor oil.

around 1100 here. The AR was still running okay at that point, albeit the action cycling just enough too slow for me to hear it. I cleaned it anyway since I figured I'd made my point by that time.

Put about 300+ through my AR before I cleaned it... 240 last fall, and a few more in 2000... so I didn't clean it for 9 years on 60 rounds and it worked fine for the 240 that came almost a decade later.

Ten years without a cleaning and no malfunctions? Interesting. Glad it worked out for you.

Still, I have to wonder, for those who want to evaluate the AR system's merits in a combat environ, how well this compares to the situation of a soldier or a cop carrying this on duty. After all, for most of the time interval you describe, the gun was in a safe somewhere.

My 1100+ round test was run over the space of a few months, on a local range and in an actual rifle class. At no time during the test did I either clean the rifle or lubricate it in any way. The one thing I didn't do with it that IMHO would have improved the test would have been to crawl through a few mud puddles with it.

It doesn't. A soldier or a cop will not play this game. There's no excuse for them not to keep a weapon clean. Keeping a weapon not properly maintained is an academic exercise. Legend has it Bill Wilson was once asked how many thousand round his guns will handle without basic maintenance. His reply was "Why the f... would I know?" To me that pretty much sums it up. In the real world that is.

Wasn't intentional... took it shooting, it malfunctioned due to a bad gas tube, took it to the shop to get it replaced, placed back in closet and forgot about cleaning it until 10 years later.
