I have a Ruger .357, I got from my dad when he retired as an LEO. It is 100% stainless steel, except the hand grips, so to clean it he has always removed the rubber grips, placed it in the dishwasher and ran it thru a cycle. Once its done he runs a bead of oil over the entire surface, and its ready to go.

So have you ever done this?

You can only do that with Glocks.

You could get away with that method only in a home with no functioning females. It's in the same league as using the oven to dry out an engine block.

I've probably seen it done and done it myself a 1000 times. I use no soap, or chemicals. Just very hot water and steam. The use hoppes #9. No risk of explosion I can see, so please explain.

If you do this, and have any NON functioning females in the house, expect them to start functioning just to bitch you out.

Usually just clean my revolver like any other gun, take it apart and clean everything, but the dishwasher is a good idea, never thought of that

How will it clean the lead & copper out of the barrel.

Nobody is worried about lead contamination of the eating utensils for the next wash?

I've always done my best to keep water off my firearms.

Not going to stop now.

Water is going to sit in parts you can't reach and a revolver has alot of them.

Just my opinion.
