    Afternoom All - I was just making up a small order from Joe Beary up in WA when it occurred to me that you may had never heard of him. He makes the niftiest line of specialist and general gunsmithing/cleaning tools you can imagine, being a 100% full-time 'smith himself.

    Here is his site - www.gunsmithertools.com

    ...and here is his current auction stuff on GB -


    I have been using his little crud-buster extendable wire brush and scraper for a few years - VERY useful for BP arms, I can tell you!

    Needless to say, I have no connection with him or his business, apart from being a happy customer.

    Bi-Mart sells a product (other dealers probably sell it,too) called a "bore snake". I read an on-line review about this item and it sounds like a fantastic way to clean firearms! Just one or two passes through the barrel and you're done. I'm going to purchase one and test it and will let y'all know as soon as possible. Clean guns are a man's best friend!

    The gunsmither block for the 10/22 is a good concept and I believe has good reviews.

    I have several Bore-Snakes and while they are convenient and sound like a good idea, they are really only handy in the field for a quick pull through the barrel. I really like the long "patch" but if you run it through the bore several times, you're just dragging the same crud through the barrel.

    I highly recommend Wipe-Out series of products. They are fantastic. Their website leaves a lot to be desired, but the product speaks for itself.

    I run a bore snake a couple times right after shooting. Guns clean better when they're still fresh! :)
