Ok, I've read how to field strip the weapon down and ive cleaned it to the best of my ability... I do have one question about cleaning and that is, does the firing pin ever need to be cleaned and if so, how do i access it... the instruction manual does not go into great detail as to how to accomplish this.

Thanks,
Yakove

A high pressure spray can chemical like BREAKFREE PowderBlast gun cleaner in a black can can clean firearms without dissasembely. Just keep it off of plastic parts. Put the tube on the nozzle and spray in the FiringPin hole to get carbon ,gun powder,and other debris out. If you prefer to oil your FP a would use a very light oil like RemOil and wipe or blow all the excess off with compressed air.

you can also remove the firing pin assembly, it's not hard and there's probably a thread on here that explains how. since the back firing pin 'cap' is plastic, the BREAKFREE might not be a good idea, unless you can mask the cap off well. i've only takin the pin out once, and it wasn't that dirty (after about 500 rds. or so). well, the cap may not be plastic, it's probably more of a nylon polymer like the grip, so how does BREAKFREE do against that, not bad?

adam73143 next time you buy a can try the Birchwood Casey spay, they make one that is safe for syn. and rubber. I use it on my firing pins and it blows out all the stuff. I clean the lowers of the PT140 & 24/7 with it and it gets all I have missed with the early cleaning and does no harm.

Where do you get it ? I will look next time im in wallmart.

The firing pin and channel would only need to be cleaned after thousands of rounds,and then it would probably be best to detail strip the whole gun ,including the firing pin, at that time for a good cleaning unless the firing pin was in there pretty good with a roll pin and you don't want to bang on it. Allot of guns these days fully strip without hardly any tools or force.

I've got it at Cabelas, Acadamey, Cheaper than Dirt, etc. It's birchwood casey and it's called Gun Scrubber synthetic safe cleaner, silver cap, 13oz can. If you do your cleaning then use for the follow up a can will last along time. I like it.
