Re: cleaning chamber

you can get a chamber cleaning tool and lug cleaning tool from Midway USA the chamber tool is basically a wool mop threaded to a plastic stick the lug tool uses the same gauze cylinders that the Dentist puts in your mouth its attached to another plastic stick. if your chamber is really dirty use some Isso bore paste and follow with solvent to wash out the abrasive if not too dirty just use some Kroil

good luck

I think you are going to have a hell of a time getting that "plastic stick" to bend enough to get it into a 7400 chamber and, still do a good job of cleaning the chamber.

Re: cleaning chamber

The Rem 7400's and 7600's come with a chamber brush. It's bronze and has a bent wire handle.

CJ Weapons make the Chamber Maid kits. Available from Brownells for less than $10. PN 100-003-010AB (30/06).

I've been having luck with Birchwood Casey Bore Scrubber from the spray bottle. Don't forget to remove the trigger group to keep the solvet out.
