    Word of caution . Was following a thread about a LC9s that all of a sudden became unreliable . One fellow's explanation was that after about 1000 rounds the striker channel can clog with brass filings and gunk and needs to be cleaned out . Just thought I would pass this along .

    Maybe I clean it, but don't know it.

    Braking down the slide is more detailed than a regular cleaning .

    It still should be considered routine maintenance at some point . . . or so the evidence would indicate. If 1000 rounds or so is where people are starting to run into trouble, I'd clean my striker channel every 500 rounds. And if I didn't feel confident that I could do that, I'd pay a gunsmith to do it for me.

    I checked the manual and the slide breakdown is not covered . Also not in the Tech tip videos . Galloway Precision has a video of the procedure .

    We must also resist the temptation to oil the striker. The oil will cause the striker to hydraulic lock just enough to cause light primer strikes. I found out the hard way, and then found out it was common knowledge among my fellow competition shooters. We shoot hundreds of rounds and the striker is something I keep an eye on. When your striker and channel are clean they will have a certain feel when you move them. Remember that feel when you clean your weapon. I flush mine with brake clean then blow with air or simply wait for the cleaner to evaporate. Normally I don't remove the striker unless I'm changing the spring. Denny
