    Bore snake

    I broke down and bought a boresnake for my PS90. Used it the first time yesterday. Was surprised that I had to yank pretty hard to get it thru, but it works well.

    The instructions make no mention of lube/oil. But, I put a bit of breakfree on the "brush" part. I assume that is the way to do it, right?

    I always use a little oil or Hoppes#9 on it. I only use mine at the range.

    Be sure to clean and lubricate. And not just the bore. A clean and properly oiled rifle is a happy rifle.

    Yea, I know. I clean my guns very well. I just thought I'd try it because the 1 time I tried the brush and rod, the rod had some flex in it if I held it by the end handle. Thought I'd try this. Cleaned it very well in just 1 pass.

    I still take care of the rest of it.

    I always put some Blue Wonder gel on my bore snake. Don't forget to soak the bore snake every so often to get the nasties off. I'll tell you, I bought an Otis kit the other day for my rifle and I think I like their system a little better. It isn't a "brush and patch in one," but I think it did a better job.

    Yes, I was pretty excited to finally get one - a black one at that. I got to sight it in this past weekend. I like it a lot - Finally have my sling for it too.

    Its quieter and easier to clean than an AR too...

    I use them only on my shot gun. I guess I'm to set in my ways to change the way I clean.
