Thanks for all the replies!!

That said there is, as predicted by some, the full spectrum of responses from deep cleaning techniques to "why bother?"!!

Why am I even surprised?

The main thing for me is to keep the rifle in good condition and shooting well. If that can be acheived with minimal input, then great!! I suppose that after cleaning a revolver for ages, it seems like cheating to wave a q-tip in a rifle's direction and call it clean.... But, horses for courses!!

Save your time and money and quit cleaning your .22 barrels.
Given your signature line, I ought to feel privileged that one of those posts was to my question!!
I have joined the ranks of a select few!!
