    You should see my carry gun. Can range from sand, stone dust, concrete dust, lint, sheet rock dust. I dont clean it as often as i should.

    I can understand that. But you have to realize that the gun in the picture was brought to us for money, either in pawn and then defaulted or sold outright. It's like selling a house and not doing housecleaning before prospective buyers come and take a look at it.

    Every picture of sandy/linty/dirty guns were all out of pawn or sold to us. Seems funny to me as I'd like something I'm selling to look as good as possible. That's why I clean everything coming out for sale.

    I agree, i clean and oil anything i sell. I know the person buying will most likely do the same thing. I looked at a pistol one time and i racked the slide to clear it. A whole pile of carbon, lint and crude came out. I talked him down for being dirty.

    I don't mind people selling dirty guns one bit.

    I've got great deals on plenty of guns that "used to work great, dunno what's wrong" that just needed a little cleaning. Once, a trigger return spring and a cleaning.

    I bought a used legion p226 from a gun store. didnt looks much at it as I know the owners and wasnt worried it wouldnt work or they sell me anything that was a cluster. got home broke it down and an absolute mess. had never been cleaned its entire life. extractor was so filled with carbon no way it could work right. looked like a stick rather than a claw. whole gun was a carbon bomb. i dug carbon out with toothpicks from everywhere. solvents laughed at it. had to toothpick clean it first and then brush over and over. wipe down, back to solvents and brushing. over and over. just a goat rope of a mess........

    cleaned it up. was back at said store few months or so later was telling the owner whoever's sold that one to him should be taught how to clean his firearm. he kinda looked ashamed and oddly at me....I suspect it was one of his personal guns he sold. maybe not though.

    That’s not that bad. And it’s a glock. It should function even if it was actually dirty

    Looks more like it was the end result of a DQ in a match. Likely dropped in sandy soil.

    The original example of pocket dump. AR15 up and tells you when there is sand in them. Even a deaf old man cringes at the action being cycled. ;)

    I believe it is indicative of the previous owner's nature, and probably why they were in need of a pawn-brokers' services.

    My LGS won't put any gun into the case until they've carefully field-stripped it and cleaned it.

    I found a tiny little bit of carbon in one after I got it home and teased them a bit next time I went there.

    Hey, that grit and dirt helps grind down factory imperfections, to help parts mesh, better, right?

    Day at the beach ? WTH were they doing with that thing, a sand torture test ?

    Many of the worst looking guns I've bought were police trade ins. I bought a glock 22 once that had enough dirt or dried skin in the serrations that it was almost flush with the slide. I bought a 226 that looked to have been shot about one full mag and carried for 10 years without one cleaning. Both looked new upon cleaning.

    that's the truth. never bought a police trade in yet was not a complete mess and poorly taken care of. weird too, as a tool they need and use to protect their own life and other officers and civilians youd think it would be taken care of properly. I'll never understand that.....

    Mine have been okay. Luck of the draw, I guess.
