You always prefer what you're trained to use.

EXACTLY , people are going to choose the rifle that they are trained with , in theory thats what is going to keep u alive , your training . So in my case the SA80A2 but i for the sake of arguement if i wasnt trained with the SA80A2 , i would proberly pick the AK 47 for its realibility and relative ease of use

Aw, come on, you gotta admit "assault rifle" sounds cooler than "automatic rifle." It's a little easier to say, too.

For good measure if it's a weapon you use on a regular basis then you should ideally clean it once a day and also after shooting it.
In the field, whenever you can. This may not be very often even though it is here that cleaning your weapon is most important. You can do the most basic rifle cleaning in the field under three minutes.
Even weapons you do not use will rust if you don't clean them.
Though I haven't used the G-3, I would assume if that's your primary rifle, you should clean it once a day, usually in the morning because it might get some dew on it and that's going to speed up rust.
Personally I didn't mind cleaning my K-2.

I've cleaned my AK maybe three or four times in the last three years. (Not including the occasional wipe down in gun oil)

It absolutely reeks of cordite and burned wood.

My friends hate to shoot it because the smell gets on their clothes and their hands.

I guess it depends on the weapon and how much it is being used, and how reliant you are on it working perfectly every time. Some seem far more prone to powder fouling than others this also applies to leading of the barrel.

In fairness to yourself, it is always a good idea to keep your weapon as clean as possible, even if it only means giving it a pull through and scrubbing the parts subject to fouling with an old tooth brush then just wiping it all over with a slightly oily rag, 5 minutes, maximum.

There's something about the smell of a freshly cleaned firearm when done with a carbolic based gun oil like Young's 303. Mmmmm.
