I finally broke down the Dan Wesson for cleaning last night. After a few mishaps and my sending the recoil spring plug across the room where it decided to hide I got the damn thing cleaned, lubed and reassembled.
Of course now I've got a nice "idiot scratch" on it. Mine's actually in a zig-zag pattern going from the slide stop down towards the trigger. Good thing I've long since stopped worrying about putting scratches on guns. (even $1K guns) If you shoot and carry a gun it's going to get wear marks and scratches, so what's one more?
