There are a few ways to do this, but the most common is to use a cleaning rod with a patch on the end.

First, remove the cylinder from the gun and make sure it’s clean and free of any debris.

Next, wrap the patch around the end of the cleaning rod and insert it into one of the chambers.

Gently push and twist the rod until you feel it hit something solid. This is the debris that needs to be removed. Keep rotating and pushing until all chambers have been cleared.

Finally, reassemble the gun and test the fire.

There are a few ways to ream revolver cylinder:

  • One is to use a specially designed tool that fits inside the chamber and removes the burrs.
  • Another is to wrap a piece of sandpaper around a wooden dowel or another cylindrical object, and then spin it inside the chamber to remove the burrs.
  • A third option is to use a file to carefully remove the burrs.

Whichever method you choose, make sure to take your time and be careful not to damage the chamber walls.

There are a few different ways to ream a revolver cylinder.

  1. One is to use a hand reamer, which can be purchased at most gun stores.
  2. Another option is to use a drill bit that is the same size as the hole in the cylinder.
  3. A third option is to use a file.

Whichever method you choose, make sure that the tool is absolutely clean before you start, and apply light pressure while reaming. Take your time and go slowly to avoid damaging the revolver cylinder. Enjoy!

One way is to use a .45 caliber steel rod that is at least 4 inches long. The rod should have a hole drilled at the end big enough for the rod to fit over the nipple on the revolver cylinder. Put the rod over the nipple and tap it with a hammer until the cylinder is reamed.

Another way to ream a revolver cylinder is to use an Allen wrench that is 2 1/2 inches long. The Allen wrench should have a hole drilled in one end big enough for the wrench to fit over the nipple on the revolver cylinder. Put the Allen wrench over the nipple and tap it with a hammer until the cylinder is reamed.

One way is to use a cleaning rod with a patch on the end to clean the barrel of the gun.

Another way is to take a small Allen wrench and stick it into the hole on the side of the revolver cylinder. Turn it clockwise until the Allen wrench will not turn anymore. This will loosen up the dirt, lead, or other materials that are built up in the revolver cylinder. Once it is loose, take a brass brush and scrub it until it is clean. Then use a Q-tip or some other type of soft cloth to wipe off any remaining dirt or lead.

Finally, use a can of compressed air to blow out any remaining debris from inside the revolver cylinder.

You should never need to ream a revolver cylinder. If the cartridge cases are sticking, you should be able to push them out with a cleaning rod (or by shaking the gun). If they’re stuck, you can use a .22 caliber bore brush or a .45 caliber chamber brush. But if that doesn’t work, then you probably have something else wrong with your gun and you should take it to a gunsmith.
