    Make sure you do a regular check for lint and crud in that humpback. They are famous for collecting stuff that may hamper a solid hammer strike. I am amazed at what I get when I inspect my carry folder that is always clipped to my jeans or a 340 that accompanies me on my walks.

    We were cleaning out boxes of crap from guestroom closet & under the bed that haven’t been touched in 25 years, and this 1960s repro of a British Land Pattern flinter .69 caliber (made in Japan) turned up. Long ago I had “patina’d” the metal to look like it was an antique. Gotta get a new mainspring from Dixie Gun Works though.
    In between loads you could turn it around and start clubbing.

    That makes a lot of sense, Springfield comes out with the SA35 because FN says tooling was too expensive so discontinued. Now suddenly they are making Hi Powers again. Maybe it'll take some of the heat off the Springfield and mine will show up sooner, still no sign of it yet.

    I take the grips off, and the side plate and take out the cylinder. I do not take all the parts apart, no need to. This time I used "Safety Ultrasonic Weapons cleaner". And then when finished, dunked it all in a Jar of ballistol Milk and blew all out with a can of compressed air. The Ballistol dries and leaves a very super slick thin film of lubricant. The gun now is so much smoother. The cylinder release was becoming someone stubborn and now opens very easy. And Grittiness has gone.
    Actually this stuff worked better than anything I have used. I also use Hornady one shot.

    I love this cleaner. Just a small one. Great for cleaning a lot of magazines without having to take them apart. Get all the crud out of the trigger parts etc. I use a cleaner agent, but most of the time use Ballistol Milk. (90% water 10% Ballistol). The Ballistol leaves a super slick fine film on the mags and Parts.
    I hope you are correct about the BLM stuff. Nothing good from “org’s” like that for sure.
    I looked up some cheaper cleaners, such as at Harbor Freight. I had no idea they could be had for so cheap. With one of their 20% off coupons, I’ve gotta get one. Thanks for peaking my interest and for letting me know the solution to put into it. As much as I sweat up my guns it will be cool to get ‘em all cleaned and protected in the crannies I can’t easily reach.

    A clean gun is a happy gun.

    By the way read this. It is fascinating.

    Man I thought I could click on that and open up an e-book. That woulda been nice! Have to check it out sometime. I know if Levin wrote it then it must be pretty good.
