l saturate the area with brake cleaner and squash a rag into the the hole twisting it, then do the same using inox
l also use bent q-tips soaked in inox and lots of compressed air

I do the same and sometimes I will run hot to boiling water through the action and bore as well if I have been using a bore past or cutting compound. The water will work well for softening up carbon and heating up the barrel as well which helps all the chemicals with better efficiency.[/quote]

boiling hot water is a good one sungazer, it drys straight away :thumbsup: :drinks:

hmmm not sure what happened there :lol:

What went wrong was the multiple quotes thing and trying to get around it. It does make trying to get a flow of conversation difficult sometimes.
