    I don't see a problem with this. When cleaning my 10/22 I wash the bolt and recoil spring etc with petrol and a paint brush. Afterwards it gets oiled again. I have washed my 6 shooters with petrol also a few times and once in a while all my bolt action rifles' bolts get washed in petrol and oiled again. I have grown up with washing engine spares of cars in petrol and why then not firearm spares?

    There is no way that is your EDC gun. Same applies if petrol is used to dunk.

    Do you wear a clothes peg on your nose when you carry it?

    Parts and brake cleaner in the tin from Midas works very well and the pressure from the aerosol blows a lot of gunk out of the hard to reach places. Wipe down and lube.

    Jip. I have used Carburetor cleaner also a lot for hard to reach places. Works wonders. Blow all the gunk out and evaporates immediately, leaving the metal parts clean and dry and ready for a bit of oil.

    Take off slide, lube the contact points, replace slide. Repeat when I remember

    Would be different if my edc gun was shot as a sports gun

    Every 6 months or so I strip it totally down and climb in the shower with an old toothbrush and soap.
    Each part gets cleaned and reassembled, lube on the rail points and a little on the barrel, done.

    Only shoot a few rounds a month through it, I would guess it doesnt need cleaning for a year or two but it doesnt hurt.

    I rinsed mine under a tap when it had mud in it once then went back to shooting

    But normally just a wipe and lube the important bits. Scrape out any carbon under the extractor every couple of thousand rounds. No need for break or carb cleaner , paraffin or diesel. At the extreme something like water, clean green and a toothbrush works fine
