I grew up shoointng black powder muzzleloader and cap and ball revolvers. A few years ago I jump into the black powder cartridge firearms, 1st and 2nd Model Iver Johnson and Colt Model 1877's. I also fire a Snider Enfield 2 band rifle that I bought back from Afghanistan. To clean these firearms I complety break down each to the frame, scrub with soap and water, heat to remove moisture and lube. I rebuilt a Colt Model 1892 and I am currently working on a Colt Lightning. 32-20. I have read both guns are black powder only but wonder how throurogh these gun need to be cleaned. The 1892 had a crane with a staked cylinder and ejector. There is no way to dissemble the cylinder like i do with the 1877's and Iver Johnson's. How do you clean something that you cant disassemble. That makes me wonder if I am cleaning them too much. Do I completely disassemble the Lightning rifle each time I fire it, or do I only need to worry about the chamber and barrel since no gasses should escape into the action. The same could be said for my Snider Enfield, when I am cleaning the breech it doesn't look like it gets any fouling.
