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.
