    This will be old news to current Remington shooters, but for folks who don't own a Remington New Model Army revolver yet, but are thinking about getting one in the future, this could be useful.

    I had to break it into two videos due to length.

    Part one deals with cleaning the cylinder and nipples.

    Part 2 shows how to completely disassemble, clean and re-assemble the revolver.

    I use bore mops instead of a patched jag.

    There's no "one right way"...any method that works is the right way.

    That's true. I didn't mean to imply my way was better, just giving another option that maybe some people had never thought of. I find it easier but that may not be the case for everyone.

    Hawg. I understood what you meant...just endorsing it.
