cleaning funneling cone on revolver?
« on: November 12, 2012, 06:05:47 pm »
I've always had a problem with this.  Even worse now that I reload lead.  I just can't get to it.  Any ideas?

Yep, order a Lewis Lead Remover.  Try Midway and or Brownells.  Note they a caliber specific.

Cleaning?   Cleaning?




Seriously I have a couple of short, cut off brushes that I use without a handle to scrub the "forcing cone".   My favorite, hard-to-reach spot is the area in between the barrel and the top strap.

Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined...The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."~Patrick Henry

Thanks.  "Forcing cone" ;), got it now.  Anatomy wasn't one of my better courses.
