I remember seeing a gunsmith just lowering an entire 1911 into a container of gasoline , leaving it there for a while, and eventually taking it out and letting it "drip dry". Hmm.. being the lazy bastard that I am....would it hurt a revolver if I did the same thing to it? (revolvers of course are more of a pain in the *** to disassemble and clean - once in a blue moon - than a 1911.) ***Does synthetic motor oil - say Mobil 1 - do anything to rubber Pachmyar grips - melt them or whatever? of course I could always remove the grips before doing the dunk.
