How Often Should I Disassemble my Semi-Automatic Shotgun for a Cleaning?

Beretta recommends that you clean your shotgun after each shooting session.

A couple of points to take note of:

1.  Do not oil the gas system (piston, piston valve, elastic piston ring, or body that is attached to barrel) as this will create carbon buildup - just keep this area clean.

2.  Keep the bolt, bolt slide and the inside of the receiver, clean and well-oiled to help the function of your Beretta and to add life to the shotgun.

3.  A few drops of oil on the working parts of the forend cap is also recommended.
