Conclusion : Frequent detail cleaning isn't necessary, and eventually it will wear out the pin holes ...
Good conclusion & observation :-)

Yup, the firing pin, EDP and their channels ALWAYS stay clean and dry.

Detail stripping is only necessary about every 15,000-25,000 rounds if that.I only do it when trying new trigger parts,strikers and doing the .25 etc..
I have heard that excessive detail stripping can wear out the pin holes.

I agree with the above comment. I have never stripped any of mine past the field stripping. There is no real need for it that compressed air and or a good hot water rinse can't do. Removing the pins to often will wallow the holes out and create bigger problems
