    Have a gun cleaner question

    Can anybody recommend a good barrel cleaner solution that really gets rid of carbon that has been left in a barrel for a long time. I have used Remington Bore Paste but I really want to limit it's use because of it's abrasive nature. Received a Model 19 S&W from a family member but it has been really neglected. And I can not get this barrell clean, it's starting to tick me off. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Blue Wonders gel works pretty good..Slip 2000 carbon cutter would work the best but since its about like water you would have to plug one end of the barrel then let it sit for say 20 mins

    Would suggest that the "abrasive" feeling bore cleaners will not hurt your bbl if not spun on a drill to produce high temps.

    Try Rem Clean or better yet JB Cleaner. Bench rest shooters(as I do) swear by the latter.

    It's available at Sinclair Intl.,Midway,and some others.--------

    You may want to try an electric bore cleaner, it is what I use on all my mil-surp and neglected gun-show purchases, and it will literally suck all that junk off the metal. They run in the $70 range, but are worth every dime.

    hoppes #9 solvent is what I use. Just insert wet patches and soak, then repeat with bore scrubbings.
    The best is the electric bore cleaner and is the easiest.
    Just depends on how much money and work you wanna spend...
