Your 870 will run a long time between cleaning....I use a bore snake and some breakfree...I will "Lube" up the barrel with breakfree and let it sit while I take the bolt out and wipe it down and inside the receiver. Once this is done I will put a small amount of oil on the action bars and put it back together...Then I will finish up the barrel with the bore snake and put the shotgun back together....Never put any lube in the magazine tube...Only clean this out with a dry patch when needed.

I have put 200-300 rounds of bird shot through the old girl over a weekend without cleaning it while hunting and teaching Boy Scouts....
