Question

What cleaners are recommended for black powder revolvers?

The cleaning video gave us the how, but not what cleaners to use. Also, there seemed to be a special cleaning container, that allowed the cylinder to be soaked. It had a platform or basket to hold the cylinder. Can this be purchased through Cabela's?

answer 2
I use CLP carbon remover. I've used hot soap and water which does a good job but requires complete drying and oiling to prevent rust.

Question

will Navy Cylinder work with Army revolver

I honestly do not like the naval battle scene on the 1860 cylinder. seeing as how the confederate navy model fires the same caliber will the spare cylinder for the navy work with the army without any problems? Or should I just save myself the trouble and go with the confederate navy revolver.
