    The barrel *must* be fitted! Otherwise you will lose accuracy.

    I had good results with LEAD removal cloth. Has to be the heavy variety such as Kleenbore. Cut it in patches and push with a bronze brush sized for 9mm.
    I'd avoid using the Lewis kit. Too rough. It was meant to clean forcing cones in revolvers. Gold Cup Trophys are supposedly accurized at Colt.
    Using lead cloth, I dont need any lead solvents, they are toxic, pungent, and can mess up finishes.

    I’m puzzled/surprised/wondering as to why Colt opted to send a barrel as opposed to having the pistol returned for their inspection and repair.
