Mercury works, but it's toxic.
A Lewis Lead Remover works, but it's something to buy.
Shreds of copper Chore Boy scrubber wrapped around a brush does pretty well and is cheap.
JB Bore cleaner gets out the last bits and polishes the barrel so it will lead less.

Shoot it out with a few full metal jacketed bullets? It worked for a buddies glock.

If it is a stainless steel one you can make 50/50 mix Hydrogen Peroxide and Vinegar and soak it for about 30 min and the lead will just fall out. But do not use this on a plain steel barrel it will stain it and make it look like crap.

Lewis lead remover, very inexpensive, very effective, very easy to use.

Try this link Lewis Lead Remover (http://handgunsandammo.proboards36.com/index.cgi?board=smithing&action=display&num=1102899531)

Klean-bore makes LEAD AWAY PATCHES a moist patch that removes lead. Should be available at any store that handles KLEAN-BORE products.
