Default Bore Snake

BoreSnake is the best out there. there is a brass weight with the caliber on it you drop it down the barrell and floss it.... No Hoppes, or any other cleaner is neccessary. when dirty you just wash...http://www.eabco.com/BorSnake.html

I have about half a dozen. Luckily there is only one for 9mm/357 and one for .22/5.56

I have a few in many calibers. Great tool to have. I tend to carry one with me to the range for the gun I am shooting that day. A couple quick passes before i leave and I am comfortable not cleaning for a few days until I have the time for a full cleaning.

Awesome, until they break.
I've never had one of mine break, but a buddy had a helluva time getting the brush out of his AR barrel when his broke. Since then, I have always inspected mine closely before each use.

Doesn't keep me from using them, just something to be aware of.

I use them in 22 caliber and 30 caliber, great for quick cleaning, but every so often you will need to scrub it out.

Best thing in the world for a .22 pistol, especially a Ruger Much easier then taking that thing apart all the time.

Just got mine recently. It does seem to make cleaning easier and faster.
