    Great time at the range today. Sparrow shot great. ~300 Rounds through the 22/45 Lite and about 150 rounds through the 10/22 carbine. Mostly all Tac-22 @1100fps. Shot a few rounds of high velocity. A bit of a crack but still very quiet.
    Both guns were spot on. Not tack drivers at 10&25 yards but certainly Minute Of Idiot. Purchased a small ultrasonic parts cleaner and will disassemble the sparrow and give it a good bath tomorrow.

    I don't think I've ever cleaned my Sparrow.
    Really?! That’s interesting. I bought it because it had that single structure construction and looked easy to clean. I’ll boil it and give a report. How many rounds do you have through it and is it louder now than when you bought it?

    Sorry, bought it 10+ years ago, and haven't used it in 6 probably.

    It must have at least 1k rounds through it.

    Even though it is supposedly easy to disassemble and clean I have found it isn't that easy. Mine was difficult to disassemble and terrible to clean all the lead and stuff out of it. Manual cleaning so maybe some other type will make it easier. I try and clean it soon after use. I like it a lot though. Very quiet in my bolt gun with standard velocity cci.
