As many of you know, I have a Ruger GP 100. I have never taken the cylinder off when cleaning this gun. Should I be? I thought someone told me if you take the cylinder off, you could be messing up the timing. Is this true? Should I be removing the cylinder of my revolver to properly clean it?

I use CLP powder blast to clean my revolvers. Powder blast removes any old grese and oil without tearing the pistol down. Then I use plain old CLP to lubricate my revolvers. I used to tear them down to grease the moving parts. CLP does just as good as grease did. I dropped my blackhawk off for my gunsmith to inspect it. He remarked that it was very clean. It's been two years since I have had the blackhawk inspected, it had no worn parts despite all the hot ammo I have shot in it.
