|I found something that helps alleviate that problem of flaking and extra residue in barrels. The Marines would fire their weapons for range quals, clean the weapon, then come back and reclean the same weapon three days later. now whether you use the weapon once the not again for awhile, still do the procedure. If you fire it clean it then go out and use it the next day clean it the three day cycle after the last time use. It works! you will be surprised how much crap will come out again! One thing we used to do was send a man in early from the skirmish to get the fire going and put a big pot of water on to boil. When we got back two or three men would strip down their revolvers put the barrel and cylinder in the water and let them boil for ten minutes. Then a another group wqould do it. You'd be surprised again at how clean they come out. you want that realizism, and be like real soldiers, go that extra mile in gun safety. They depended on those weapons to save their lives, why shouldn't we do any less with ours?
