Let me start out this review stating I am a former infantry machinegunner Marine of 5-1/2 years with 2 deployments and a whole ton of training. I've cleaned just rifle barrels for HOURS before. I've spent whole days cleaning one or two weapon systems. Running endless patches soaked in solevant through the bore from breach to muzzle. Doing it one or two patches at a time. The boresnake can do the job of 100 patches with one pull. Its extremely easy to use as well. So lets say you've come back from the field and shot hundreds or even thousands of rounds thru your rifle, not only that but its been raining and you've even managed to get mud and other dirt and crud in your weapon. All you'd have to do is use your cleaning rod to knock out the physical chunks of mud or whatever crud out the weapon, then drench your bore with the solvent of your choice, CLP or whatever, I like rem oil and their line of gun cleaners, then pull the snake thru the barrel. Drench the bore in solvent again for a second pass if needed, the barrel in just 2 passes will be shiney and as clean as it was when you first pulled it from the armory. Then I usually will load up the barrel with lubricant just to keep it clean. If its going to be sitting in a clean, dry, safe armory I usually soak it in a little excess oil and wipe it down again the next time I take it out to the field. If you have the correct caliber snake for the barrel then you should feel a little resistance pulling it thru just like you would if you are using patches instead, you can even make the snake a little thicker by bunching it up just a bit, its easier to show then tell. The boresnake is washable too so you can gently clean it with hot soapy water and leave it out for the sun to dry. This doesn't mean you should throw away your cleaning rod because you may still need it but this snake will be your go to tool when cleaning rifle barrels for average use.

These bore cleaners are like dental floss for your gun's barrel. Used as directed and right after your shooting session, it will clean your barrel rifling safely to a mirror like shine without solvents or a mess. Keep one in your rangebag handy to remove corrosive powder and primer residues from your barrel. Quick, easy and rugged. Good for years of use although your mileage may vary. Great gift for the new gun owner!

If you own a fire arm, you need a bore snake. These work amazingly fast & well. Cuts cleaning time in half. This makes cleaning your barrel a breeze.

Very quick and easy. I always take this with me in my range bag. Even if you don't brake down your gun for cleaning, a few pulls through with a Bore Snake and your pistol barrel will be clean and shooting right on target.

The bore snake is an essential part of a cleaning kit, but it's not the perfect tool. I bought my first bore snake 15 years ago from a manufacturer that I assume has been bought out by Hoppe's. My most recent bore snake testifies to the old refrain: they don't make them like the used to.

The brass bristles are no longer made to be adequate for giving the barrel a good scrubbing. (You will still need a brass cleaning rod.) The new model bore snake is too stretchy; it lengthens (and narrows) when pulled through the bore so it doesn't have a tight fit like the old bore snake. It's still very effective, and I would rather pull the snake through for a few more passes than labor with patches.

My recent purchase was for 2 snakes of the same caliber: one for rifle, the other for pistol. The obvious difference would be the length of the lead string. (There is no use having a 3-foot lead on a snake that will be used for a pistol.) But the snake labeled for pistol has the same extra-long lead as the rifle snake. The colors are different, but that is all. So save yourself the second expense; order a rifle snake and understand that it is one-size-fits-all.

If you started cleaning guns when the rule was to scrub the barrel back and forth with a bronze brush on a long cleaning rod, loaded with Hoppes #9, followed by pushing dry cotton patches down the barrel until they came out dry, you may be skeptical that you can get results just as good with one pass down the barrel with this gadget. But this is not just a quick, field expedient cleaning method- although it's a great addition to your field kit. It combines all the traditional cleaning tools into one simple tool. At one end is a non-scratching soft brass weight that is dropped through the barrel from the breech end. Behind the weight is a length of narrow rope, followed by a wider section with a brass brush built into it. After the brush is wide, soft section designed to absorb any liquid, powder and lead loosened up by the solvent and brush.

This is a really simple, well-designed cleaning system that works just as well as the traditional methods in a fraction of the time. Spray your barrel with your favorite cleaner, drop the brass weight down the barrel, and pull the snake through. That's it. (It won't remove heavy leading in one pass, but if you have heavy leading you're either loading too hot or waiting too long between cleanings!) I was convinced when I found out that bullseye target shooters- a very picky lot- swear by the barrel snake. I've got versions in .22, .38, and 20 gauge. If you tend to put off cleaning after a day in the field or the range because it's just too time consuming, you need a BoreSnake. It makes cleaning so easy that you won't be tempted to put your gun away with a dirty bore any more.
