How do I clean this part of revolver?

This carbon between the top strap and top of barrel is hard as rock. S&W 625 .45 ACP. Since its stainless I'm thinking to try oven cleaner. Normal solvents wont touch it. Any ideas? Thanks for help.

For caked on carbon get some dental scrapers. I use them on gas plugs etc. After that you just have to get tge thinnest stuff to thread in their. Like the edge of a patch.

Also kroil and 0000 steel wool will help on the front of the cylinder.

Thanks from Douglas Haig and firefuzz

Brass Chore Boy. Rip some off, twist it into a strand, and run it back and forth? .17 bore brush?

I use a dental tool. The ones that the dentist uses to scrape your teeth free of plaque. I ever so slightly take the point off(blunting) the pick and use a patch with LPS1 to scrape it clean. Tooth brush will help too.

I get as much as I can with a toothbrush and ignore the rest. It don't hurt anything.

Try soaking it over night in a gallon can of chem- tool carburetor cleaner and scrub using a nylon brush

Everyone should have a bundle of brass toothbrushes, available from Grainger, in their tool chests. Tom from MN

I like the double ended bronze brushes:

And, like The Dutchman said, a selection of dental picks is good, just rub easy to "break up" the carbon and not scratch the steel.

I think you should give up and sell it to me. I have always wanted a 625.

Soak some Kroil over the area overnight. Wipe it off with a Qtip.

The brass/bronze brushes have worked well for me on STAINLESS only for 45 years. Never for blued or nickel.
