    Every time I shoot one of my firearms I clean it afterwards, and that includes cleaning the magazine well or tube as well.

    My 45ACP and my 5.56x45 both have detachable box magazines. I take the one I used at the range completely apart, clean every square centimeter of it springs and all, wipe it off, then reassemble and test it.

    I have learned over the past 42 years of shooting with box magazines that they will jam if they are not cleaned.
