    lol this is funny cuz i jus responded to Drop-Shots comment bout cleaning guns right as i was gonna make this thread :lol: anyways i got a friend here right now and he brought his remington 1187 here so anyways we cleaned it with his cleaning kit he brought and he asked if i had a drill which of course i did so i got it and he put his cleaning rod in it and put solvent on the patch n then put the rod down the barrel n turned on the drill all the way and slowly pulled it out the barrel as the rod spinned and then he replaced the patch with a dry one n then did the same thing n then took that patch off n then put 1 on the had some oil on it and did the same thing and then he showed me the barrel and i swear to God it looked like looking at a mirror cuz it was so shiney n clean so i got out my trusty mossberg 500 n did the same thing :twisted: now i never even wanna shoot it cuz the barrel is so clean looking :roll:

    Mase,
    I've been meaning to try that technique but something always seems to pop up and I forget to or heck, there are some times I oddly enough enjoy cleaning my pet firearms. Something about the smell of Hoppes wafting in the garage. Few things are as satisfying as a well maintained, clean firearm but in a couple days I suspect the bug will be back to take your firearm out and go hunting or shooting, in my case it is usually the next morning.
    Safe shooting.

    Re: re: too clean to shoot

    he didnt attach the rod that has the handle on it all he did was attach 3 rods together and then the little loop thingy that holds the patch and then put in in the drill chuck the same way as u would put in a drill bit

    also i think the rod was made of aluminum

    583,

    I have a three-piece aluminum rod and the T-Handle will unscrew. The rod chucks up nicely in a 3/8 or 1/2 inch drill. I find spinning a bronze brush through the bore very effective. A short soak with Ed's Red followed by a spinning brush and plastic fouling doesn't stand a chance. Definately labor saving :D To speed things up I will flush out the bores with brake cleaner followed by a couple dry patches. Then a light coat of BreakFree.

    Sometimes the spinning brush will spin out a choke tube. If that happens, be certain to clean and lube the internal threads.

    This procedure is for Smooth Bores Only. I would be very reluctant to push a spinning jag or brush through a rifle or pistol bore.
