Frequency of cleaning the AMT Hardballer depends on the frequency of use of the pistol. Accumulation of powder fouling in the breech and chamber area may affect the pistol causing jamming or misfiring. If either of these conditions develop, clean the pistol before assuming that something is wrong with it.
All areas of breech, slide, magazine, chamber and bore should be scrubbed or wiped clean with a cleaning patch wetted with a powder solvent. After all areas have been thoroughly cleaned, wipe again with an oiled cloth.
