kroil

I had to find out if it works for barrel and chamber leading.

We had an ice pellet storm yesterday and I got bored and walked out into the forest to shoot some ammo that always leaves lead behind.

After getting home and warming up in front of the fire I tried kroil to clean the revolver I shot. The stuff worked fairly well, but, still left some lead. I got the chambers and barrel
good and wet with it and let it sit for a few minutes and looked in the barrel and chambers with a light and the remaining lead looked loose.

I hit it with a brush and chore boy strands and presto it was gone.

The whole process was easier than other lead removal I've done in the past.

I've been using kroil for over 30 yrs in benchrest shooting and auto service repairs . If you follow the direction on frozen rusty bolts it will let you remove them in 24 hrs . I had a Roger & Spencer revolver made in 1865 the nipples were rusted in cylinder and took me over a week to get all 6 nipples out and didn't damage any of the nipples . Great stuff

Not damaging your nipples is always a plus!

usually just breakfree except for a shotgun barrel that gets leaded or streaked with plastic;
then, I use WD-40 and a brass brush.

Of course the WD-40 is cleaned out so none gets in the action and builds up those rubber like balls; though it takes years before it is a problem.

Been there not going to again.

Pay attention to accidental discharge of a barrel going wrong.

I didn't because it was from a one time poster. Did you get, or catch a virus?

good reason for the ladies to not shoot autopistols when wearing low necklines! Those ejected casings are HOT, guys.

I used to know a girl that had the same problem that 1865 revolver had!

I have used Kroil over the years and actually bought a gallon can of it. Then I needed a container to dispense it out of and tried two different ones. They were pump type containers with pull levers. To my great surprise, both pumps locked up tight! It seems both had a combination of plastic and metal in the pump device. The plastic seemed to swell and lock the action. I tried to call the company to share my experience but the owner was not there and they wanted me to talk to him directly. Naturally I never got back to trying to call again. It may never be an issue for a gun but I would not use it around plastic.
