Cleaning a 1911

How often should I clean my 4" GI .45? I've put 120 rounds through it of Remington and Winchester target ammo. I'd like to have something to look forward too, that way the thing isn't jamming every other shot before I decide it needs a good cleaning.

Aimless, I clean mine every time I shoot it. :wink:
When doing general cleaning, I field strip the gun only. Patches, a brush and a bit of lube suffice. About 2-4 times per year, I take it down to the "pieces" level, no more. As stated, taking the gun down to pieces level on many occasions more than necessary can result in problems and isn't needed.
