Ditto for windshield cleaner (20/10 bug formula) and WD-40. I do, however, set the cylinder under the running hot water in the sink to splatter while I am wiping down the frame and punching the barrel. I do not wast my time boiling water or stripping out the internals (WD-40 up & down into the "works" gives a nice coating). You can get canned air and flush out the chambers and innards easier than using an air compressor. Q-tips are great for swabbing the deep chambers.

P.S. Note in the photos from kwhi43 of the target gun how the nipples are drilled to create a recess. That allows a lighter hammer fall but generates the same PSI of striking power to set off the caps and channels more of the flame down the flash holes. Great pix!
