Hoppe's Boresnake

Postby StogieC » Mon Jan 16, 2006 9:28 pm

Without a doubt, HOPPE'S BORESNAKE, BORE CLEANER  For: .357, 9mm, .380, .38 cal. Pistols & Revolvers is one of my favorite peaces of weapons care equipment.  It provides feet of surface area and embedded brass brushes to very effectively clean your pistol's barrel.  With just a pass or two the chamber and entire barrel are clean.  The Bore-Snake Kit also comes with a carry case, oil, anti-rust gun-cloths, and solvent HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I have one for my .22 rifles, it works fabulously!!! I have never tried one on a pistol though...

I just read the add you posted, I didn't know the thing is machine washable?! I've never washed mine!!! It sure is dirty! I had better get on that, if I can just get Lilly to show me how the washing machine works...

Take it to the range with you.  Barrels clean easier and better when they are still hot and with the boresnake it only takes a few seconds.

I've heard many people complain about them claiming the obvious; if you are always using the same small section to clean your guns, it's going to get dirty. Example; using patches I know that each and every dry or solvent soaked patch is 100% clean when I start. With the boresnake who knows how dirty it is and then you run it down into your gun? I dunno about that.

I'll stick with my CPL, No. 9 and patches.

I use the bore snake and like it. Feel its more effective than patches.
Remember its washable.

The only tools I use to clean our pistols are our boresnakes, q-tips and rags. Never had an issue with not getting clean yet. When the boresnake gets too dirty just throw it in the washer. I use it on a .22, .32, .380 and 9mm. Works good in them all. I used traditional rod, brush & patches when I was in the USAF. I gotta say I like the boresnake a lot better.

I know alot of service members that kept one handy in Iraq & Afghanistan, perfect when you don't have a nice
clean area. A lot of them have switched after getting back home (I am one of them).

I keep one in my range bag, and swab out each of our pistols once we're done shooting. When I get home, I then give them a good cleaning.

I use one. When we toured the SCCY production facility I asked one of the gunsmiths what they use and he showed me a boresnake! Good enough for me!
