What kind of shotgun is Remington Sportsman 58?

How often do you clean a Remington Sportsman 58?
I shot a 58 for about a year and it worked well all the time. I cleaned it with a dry rag until the cup in the piston filled up with residue. Only had to clean out that cup once every 5,000 shells. Used Universal Clays and Clay Dot powder. The Clay Dot load (16.5 grains, 1-1/8 oz) would drop the empties right next to me.
