    Cleaning the black off your Revolvers

    What's everyone use to clean their Revolvers? I've been using Hoppe's 9, and brushing the chit out of it.. anything out there that cuts the black crude better?

    I assume you mean the blast rings on the front of the cylinder? Generally speaking, I don't worry about it beyond normal cleaning. It'll just be back the next time you shoot it.

    For stainless guns, there is a lead and carbon removal cloth by Birchwood Casey. Don't use it on blued guns. Also, you can buy an aerosol can of Carbon Off at restaurant supply stores. Spray it on, let it sit and wipe the carbon off. If those don't float your boat, get some Blue Wonder cleaner.

    Also, if you use Strike Hold on the finish, the carbon doesn't stick to the metal.

    Not saying its for everyone , but if it's a constant shooter and a stainless gun I use Mothers Mag Polish and a toothbrush for clean up and a quick rub down. Yes over time the gun gets shinier and some people hate that. But the truth is a polished surface suffers less crud adhesion than a bead blasted or brushed surface. Plus the gun always looks new.
    The more you polish the front of the cylinder the easier clean up gets.

    Right.

    Just don't try cleaning the black off your Glocks....
