Newbie cleaning question
I was finally able to get out to the shooting range and enjoyed shooting my 1858 New Army revolver. I was quite satisified with the groupings.
When I got home I removed the grips , trigger guard and cylinder of course.
I soaked them in hot soapy water for about 30 min. and then they went into a 200 deg. oven for 30 min.
When I removed the parts from the oven there was a light coat of rust on the end of the barrel, where it meets the cylinder, and a little spot just above the barrel screw threads on the back strap and another little spot where the rear of the cylinder is. These were all minor and I removed it quite easly. I cleaned the barrel and applied a light coating of oil all over the revolver.
The question I have is , How do you clean the inside of the cylinder ? and do you spray some lube into the inner workings of the gun ?
Thanks ahead of time for your help. Going to love shooting this revolver.
