    I soaked my tubes in #9 for about 2 hours in hopes of an easier cleaning session. I ended up having to send them back to Briley for repair because the little nylon spacers on the side came loose because the #9 dissolved the glue. Be careful with what you use on them. 0000 steel wool works about as good as anything.

    Shoot safe, John

    Briley told me they will replace the little nylon button for free if they wear out, and they do wear out.

    Steel wool and some Ed's Red is what I use to clean the tubes.

    I also wrap the tapered area in front of the nylon button with some Teflon tape to keep the combustion gases from getting back to the breech face.

    Not as good as the Chambermate design which has an o-ring, but it works better than nothing.
