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.
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.
