I love revolvers but hate cleaning them. I'm always fearful of the short run for a patch on a jag (makes holding by a ball bearing handle and pushing a concern), and for the muzzle itself. The setup: note good ball bearing rod and muzzle protective device. What do you do at this point? I personally never pull it back to clean more, as I figure it just drags dirt and grinds it. Especially if the jag is really tight. What about here: I personally unscrew the jag and carefully pull back the rod. Every single time. It gets really old. I do this on every gun that it's possible, SA and rifles included. Revolvers always make me the most uneasy though. I don't really use bore snakes. I'm thinking that a snake, perhaps with brush removed would be prudent. Also perhaps cut blocks of wood to put in place of the cylinder to allow the jag to be pushed through a revolver barrel wotnhout hitting the rear/firing pin area. How about smaller jags? Never really liked patch loops so I don't use them. Jags engage better. But for example, my bore tech .44/.44 jag goes beautifully through a .45 barrel but is really tight on a .44. So why not use one for .40 for routine cleaning after a range day or two?Thoughts? Figure it's good to critique from time to time. Discuss.
