Cleaning Revolver
 
What's the best way to remove lead fowling from barrel and cylinder of my GP100? I used Hoppe's #9, letting it soak after application, etc. But the dry patch kept coming out dark like lead.

I've been using Gunslick Foaming Bore Cleaner, a plastic brush through the bore and cylinder, soak, rinse, repeat. Also I found a lead removing polishing cloth (Birchwood Casey, Hoppe's) that works well too. It'll shine that sucker up better than new! Both can be found at Dick's, Bass Pro Shop, etc. I'm a HUGE fan of the lead cloth, you can cut a patch size piece, use your jag and run it through the bore, it'll come clean. (Just watch out for wax buildup.) There is a HUGE thread about cleaning here, just thought I'd save you a little time sorting through it.http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f102/gun-cleaning-input-48564/

Lewis Lead Remover, but you don't need to use this kit every time you clean your gun. Only when needed.

+100 on the Lewis, have used one for years when too much soft lead wadcutter has been run. Mop bore and cylinder w/ patch with KROIL, let set a couple of hours, run the Lewis through, and chunks of lead end up on the brass screen or falling out of bore.

I shoot pure lead out of my 1911. It can foul up pretty bad. I use a chore boy copper scouring pad. You can get them at kmart. I cut a patch out of it. Only use the real copper ones. Don't use the cheap stainless steel ones that are copper coated. Anyway, I take a smaller brush. I use a .38 brush and wrap it with the chore boy patch. Run it up and down the bore for about 30 seconds. It will clean all the lead out that fast. Then I clean it as normal. I have done it many many many times without hurting anything. Most people shoot copper coated bullets. So a copper chore boy is no big deal.
