    Another issue I think

    The Kentucky flintlock have seems to have a recessed breech face
    Is this right or my poor eyesight and imagination?
    If it is recessed,how do I clean it

    Obviously this shows how much of a newbie I am

    Again, thanks for all the help

    Sounds like a "Patent Breech" which some reproductions have. Most people use a smaller diameter brush or a small loop with a patch that will enter the reduced portion to give it a good cleaning.
