Perhaps your PRes works that way, but mine worked in a manner that ALL cleaned their weapon after the Ranges or Exercise before they were returned.
Class A Reservists were hired to come in later in the week to go over the weapons again, after they had 'sweat' for a day or two.
Unlike the Reg Force, people are less likely to be available to clean their weapons a second time, after initial cleaning; so I see no problem with bringing in a Class A to go over the weapons again. That did not in anyway exempt anyone from the initial cleaning of their weapons after firing or use on Exercise.
We had 41 people fire 14 weapons. It would be kind of crowded trying to get everyone to clean those rifles.
Anyways, when I asked if we we're going to be cleaning our weapons when we got back to barracks, I was told "Nah, don't worry about it Sir, our guys will clean them on Tuesday/Thursday night."
