Re: custom flinter cleaning?
Barrels are mainly held by pins, sometimes keys, just like your lymans, tc's etc....and a tang bolt, which goes to the trigger plate. Use an 1/8 punch or whatever size you need. Sometimes 3 or 4 will hold them, seen 5 once. I don't take the barrel out to clean, I put a toothpick in touch hole wether a liner or just a drilled vent. Put some tepid water in, let it set and slosh it with thumb over barrel. Dump and repeat several times. Than I run patch down to clean and absorb water. I use ballistol and run till clean. First swab I load up with cleaner and blow toothpick out, aim it wisely its like a geyser. I don't remove the barrel unless I hunted pouring rain or end of season.....course remome lock and clean always...i coat bottom and lower sides of barrel with thin coat of rig, to prevent rust until next time....i probably missed a ton but ask away..
