    Most of my trap guns have screw-on chokes. Both inside and outside walls get filthy after a while. I clean them by putting them in a zip-loc bag filled with 50-50 Simple Green and tap water, and immersing the bag in an ultrasonic cleaner for 60 minutes. How do you clean yours? Thanks for your input. Chichay

    Bronze brush dipped in shooters choice in a drill. Do choke and inside of barrel. I clean mine often so there's not much build up anyway.

    Mine get cleaned by leaving them overnight in a covered coffee can filled with acetone. A bit of brush work and they are good to go.

    I put a little acetone on a rag and run it thru the choke. Then, I use a brass brush chucked up in my DeWalt drill and run it in the choke. Finally I run another rag with acetone thru the choke and it comes out clean as new.

    A bore brush in the drill press to clean in inside of the chokes. It makes real quick work of it!

    Shooters Choice, bore brush chucked in the drill press. Wipe down. Takes seconds.

    I have used all those and they all work but I still think acetone or better yet electrical cleaner in a spray can is the quickest and best. dont get it on the wood

    Anybody using Slip 2000 oil as a lubricant. Viscosity is totally opposite that of lite Rem-Oil? I think I can just buy some 30W motor oil for the same use??
