    I have two new S&W Model 619 revolvers. Between the Barrel & Cylinder there is black burn there. It will not clean off. How do I get this off. Thanks

    Carbon on the cylinder face is just part of shooting a revolver. It happens to all of them but it's much more noticeable on stainless guns.

    A lead removal cloth like the ones Birchwood Casey makes will safely clean off that carbon but you might have to rub for a while. Don't use any abrasives on it.

    +1 on the lead remover cloth, probably any brand will do fine. Every now and then I like to cut a small patch and run it down the barrel and through the chambers to remove any stubborn leading. The little patch comes out dirty even after cleaning with standard patches.

    And only use on stainless guns, it will take the blueing right off of a blued one!

    I have a model 619 and I found the best way to clean that area is with a brass brush and the solvent of your choice, although I have never used a lead removal cloth. I bought the brush for a few dollars at my local gun shop. All I did was dip it in solvent and after a bit of brushing the carbon was gone. It tool less effort than I expected but make sure you use plenty of solvent. I like #9 but there are several very good solvents available on the market.
