Rick- the SKS has gas system you could clean with a Q tip! The Ruger 44 Mag carbine- not so easy. Like I said, rare, and they usually tell you in the owner's manual.

If you do lead up a gas port in an impossible to get to manner there are two ways to clean it.

You can use the dip that 22lr suppressor folks use which creates a toxic skin absorbant form of lead acetate liquid.

Or you can use mercury. Mercury binds with lead disolving it. Its doubtful your going to find enough mercury nowadays. It used to be a common gunsmith tool for deleading barrels.

Either method is toxic and hazardous.

Lead is softer than copper so it would be easier on your barrel.

Range advice is just as knowledgeable as forum advice.
The difference is one is private and can to be checked out in a forum, while forum advice may or may not check out privately.

For semi-auto pistols I take an old cleaning brush and cut patches made out of chore boy pot scrubbers. They are the real copper ones. I wrap the patch around the brush. Run it back and forth in the barrel. Good as new in less than a minute.
