    What is the best way to clean satin stainless to remove the blackening around and on the cylinder? This is a SW Model 64-1. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Yes, the lead removal cloths work quite well. I carried a S&W Model 66 (it's stainless) for duty for years and I used either those cloths, or simply scrubbed the heck out of the cylinder front with a copper brush. not the sides of course, but the front. It looks just fine after years of cleaning. I always found that regular solvent wiped the cylinder flutes clean.
