Don't really know if there's a set period, but I did mine after I had the rifle a couple of months and it was still spotless and had a coating of oil still on it. If it gets wet I would seperate it and clean, allow the stock to dry out too.
I did get a zero change afterwards though. That stock screw seems to affect my rifle alot.
what i do is........everytime after i played with any of my toys, i give it once over with a cloth spread with brunox, trisol.........or similar. it's quick. way worth it. i mean we pay big bucks for these air rifles.......they deserve some TLC. becareful that sprays like WD40, very good for dispersing water, but is not a lubricant. use light machine oil/gun oil and moly grease as per instruction manual.
to get tough finger prints off (source of rust), try one of those silicon gun/reel cloth. give the surface a gentle polish.........it comes out nice and shiny plus it leaves a protective layer. don't use it on moving parts, it's not a lubricant.
