Cleaning a Revolver Cylinder
Ever shoot your hunting revolver that the spent rounds become hard to remove from the cylinder? Yes, good. No!?! You probably could use the practice before you go out in the field with the gun. Just kidding.
The rounds are being hung up on deposits of lead, un-burnt powder and general crud. Here is a simple and effective way of cleaning the cylinder. You will need a variable speed drill or Dremel tool, some solvent , patches, cleaning rod and a brass bore brush.
Place the bore brush in the chuck of your drill or Dremel, soak a patch in your solvent of choice and run it through one of the cylinders. Now on LOW speed, run the bore brush into the cylinder hole and run it for 15-30 seconds. Run the same patch you used before into the cylinder and repeat the scrubbing with the brush for another 15-30 seconds.
Take the same patch that you have already used twice and run it through the cylinder, follow this with clean patches until all traces of crud and solvent are removed.
Repeat this with the other 4-5 cylinder holes.
Note - NEVER USE THIS METHOD TO CLEAN THE BARREL OR THROAT OF A FIREARM, YOU WILL DAMAGE THE RIFLING, I HAVE ONLY USED THIS METHOD ON STAINLESS GUNS, NOT SURE WHAT EFFECT IT WILL HAVE ON BLUED.
