I finally spoke to someone at Uberti about getting instructions on how to field strip my Silverboy. Their answer is DON'T!! They do not suggest an owner disassemble their rife for cleaning. Swab the bore and the mag tube and use a rag to wipe what you can get to. But do not disassemble.
I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that answer over the long haul. Maybe no deep cleaning for a year or two if I use really clean ammo . . . but NEVER??? This doesn't sound like a good solution for a gun I hope to pass along to my son and he to his!!http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/images/smilies/12.gif
It might not be a bad idea to listen to the factory guy when he says that you don't need to clean it beyond a basic field swab and wipe. If you want to completely detail strip it and clean it every time, there's nothing they can do to stop you, and certainly it couldn't hurt to become familiar with this procedure for future reference, but it's not something that needs doing every time. I've got an 1886 that's a PITA to put back together, and I've done it several times until I got the hang of it, but definitely wouldn't advise doing it more than necessary. (It's an original Winchester 1886 in .45-90 that I got as a Xmas present in '05, after the then-wife's grandpa died and it was among his collection of old guns. It needed a very thorough cleaning and rust-scrubbing before I was happy with it's condition. Haven't shot it yet, as the ammo isn't something that Wally-World carries, and the few places online have it for around $60 a box!)
