Lead Away patch with a small jeweler's screwdriver also used a single edge razor blade. The lead away patch with backing like a flat stick works well on the front end of the cylinder too. Not for blued guns though.

Thanks from loader21

That photo brings back memories.

I've used just about all of the methods mentioned above. Keep in mind that you will probably find some flame cutting when you remove all the carbon. It's normal. The carbon build-up helps contain it.

Thanks from Douglas Haig

I usually use a single edge razor blade and a small (a little bigger than a tooth brush) wooden handled stainless steel bristle brush. I think I got them at HD, Lowes or Harbour Freight. The stainless steel brush also works great on the front of the cylinder to remove the black rings that always seem to form there.

HTH.

Kroil really helps. I made a brass scraper by crushing the neck of a .223 case flat in a vise. I need it much more on rimfire revolvers than centerfire.

Dip some dental floss in Hoppes or other similar chemical and floss away.

The floss will get the solvent in there and the string should be strong enough to break it out once it softens a bit.

Regards,
Badger

I have been talking about this exact same thing. A friend suggested Slip2000 Carbon Killer? It is supposed to remove carbon on contact. I also heard simple green in a water mixture soaking the area over night loosens it. I would also like to know what works...

And the winners are...

Hobo Hilton and Brianns. the Kroll really softened it. I put the revolver on a cradle with the barrel pointed slightly downhill and let a couple of drops on the carbon over night. Then used qtips and a razor blade to get almost all of it out of there.

Now I hope the penetrating quality of the Kroll doesn't cause the barrel to loosen and unscrew.

Thanks from brianns, Dougboffl and rabbitone

I would suggest...

...wait for it...


FrogLube paste. Set it in their with a flat piece of brass (cut casing), leave overnight and in the morning it will wipe away like magic! The paste won't run anywhere unless you leave the gun somewhere hot.

Thanks from chief on one

I was advocating Kroil more for the cylinder face just as an added tip. But I think I've tried Kroil in that area on my Blackhawk too but I haven't tried anything overnight yet.

Soak it in some CLP for a day or two.
