I have always used the standard Outers aluminum cleaning rods for gun cleaning. I tried the bore snakes and wasn’t overly impressed. I also like to have 2 rods set up when cleaning revolver. One with a brush the other with a jag
The other day I decided to get a good, one piece pistol cleaning, so I went shopping on Amazon. I decided on a Hoppes Elite carbon fiber 8 inch pistol rod. The handle is rubberized for a good grip and contains ball bearings which the rod rotates on are pretty slick. I gave it a try on a gun that I was in the middle of cleaning when it was delivered and I like it so far.

All I ever use now, CF rods, nylon bore brushes and nylon patch pullers or push jags. Have to because I only use BTE for cleaning every bore and BTE will destroy a brass bore brush and give false copper readings with anything brass.

Used to use Sweets solvent but it stinks so bad I quit. BTE has no smell at all.

Have a bunch of brass bore brushes and jags if anyone wants them. Just collecting dust in my essentials box.

Flip, I'll pick up those brushes and jags on my trip next month. See, now I have a really good reason to stop by.
So, with that said, I'll see you in a few weeks.

Regards,
Gregory

No problem. Only one you cannot have is the BIG one I use as a chamber brush. Maybe, if the weather is conducive, I'll get the 460 out. Everyone needs to shoot a cannon. Bring ear protection with you. I have ear plugs if you don't.

Dewey for my long guns, Hoppe's for the handguns, works for me.
