Does it hurt to soak a stainless revolver cylinder and barrel in hops #9 solvent over night??

It should.:rolleyes: But it works better if you take it apart first.

Oh, you mean will it hurt the firearm? No, not at all.

I know a gentleman who had an unfortunate experience soaking a nickel plated S+W cyl in old formula #9

Yup, don't soak a nickel gun. A thin coating of copper is often put over the steel so the nickel sticks better. If the gun has any nicks or scratches the #9 can get underneath the nickel and eat away the copper between the nickel and steel.
