Is anyone using something besides a Thompson chamber brush to clean out their Thompson's chamber? If so, what are you using? Thanks for any input!

I have a .45 cal. pistol brush in twisted wire. I bent the handle and it works very well.

I've used the new foaming bore cleaner and a "bore snake". It works so well, I almost feel guilty.
I used Otters, but they are all probably about the same.

A rag and my finger works well also. But I run a pistol brush around it sometimes. And spray it with Remington spray oil. Then do a final cover with Clenzoil.
