Hoppes for solvent. The thing that helps me the most however is that I clean the cylinders in a Lyman Ultrasonic cleaner. I don't use the ultrasonic for any other parts but the cylinder come out perfect on my two FA Model 97's ( 45 colt and 357 ).

DavT, I wonder what would happen if you put the cylinder from a SRH into a vibrating shell cleaner with the medium you use for cleaning brass. I use regular medium with no polish added. Interesting idea.

You will get dust and media in places you don't want dust and media
like under the star and inside the crane. Not a good idea.

Agreed, and it might affect the finish as well. I wouldn't go there.

It was just a wild thought. I certainly wouldn't want to screw things up. Mostly I use Hoppe's on my revolvers.
