The BNL 704 MHz SRF gun has a grooved choke joint to support the photo-cathode. Due to the distortion of grooves at the choke joint during the BCP for the choke joint, several multipacting barriers showed up when it was tested with Nb cathode stalk at JLab. We built a setup to use the spare large grain SRF cavity to test and condition the multipacting at BNL with various power sources. The test is carried out with three steps: cavity, cavity with Nb cathode stalk, and cavity with copper cathode stalk. This paper summarizes the results of multipacting simulation, and presents large grain cavity test setup and the test results.
