I'm thinking about trying something different. Something like this:http://www.emf-company.com/1858-remington-army-revolver.htm

Anybody have any experience with these revolvers? What are some good brands? Any to stay away from?

Cleaning one requires disassembly down to the last screw. Soap and water, dry it off, lubricate and put back together.

It takes gunsmith screwdrivers, a laundry sink, and a clear bench to work on.

Avoid the revolvers with brass frames. You want a steel frame. Brass trigger guards are fine, but brass frames stretch.

The cleaning of BP firearms is a source of continuing discussion. You will get a wide variety of advice as to what is effective.
To provide another viewpoint - I have owned and used a .36 cal. New Police model for some years now, done a lot of load development using BP (ffg and fffg), Pyrodex and 777.
I have never dismantled it past taking the cylinder out while cleaning, removing the grips and the occasional check on the springs. I use swabs, a toothbrush, hot water and Ballistol. The gun is as new. There is no rust - outside or inside.
It doesn't take me any longer to clean it than to clean my .45 Auto between matches.
