Very well done.

Tom- Thanks!!! PM me your shipping addy and I will send you a free set (minus the brush puller, I'm all out of them right now). I will send you a few of the Patchsnake button pullers, a Jagsnake, and a brass Gunner finger loop chamber brush and mop.

Welcome to RFC!!!

Sincerely,

DrGunner

That would be great.
I surely did not expect that, I was simply saying thanks for sharing your great ideas.

No problem. I will get them out some time this week-
Enjoy, and share any feedback/suggestions.

Always open to ways to improve them.

Regards,

DrGunner

That's high praise coming from you, the Original inventor of all the best 10-22 gadgets! I use my Gunsmither tools often!

Thanks for the link for the brass, that will be a much cheaper route!

Regards,

DrGunner

Gonna give it a try ....

Thanks for all the great info here.

I'm going to give it a go myself, once I get all the pieces gathered - I'm a new shooter, so I'm still figuring out what I want/need.

Cheers!

Dr. Gunner, Howdy;

Thanks for the PMs. Just completed reading this entire thread plus the side-trip
for the muzzle guide. This has been bookmarked for future reference.
Living in an RV has it's drawbacks and kindly offered gifts are greatly appreciated.

Hi Gunnar, have you ever tried putting one of the VFG felt pellets on the Patchsnake line and using that rather than a regular cotton patch?

I personally use them on a rod but I think it would work just as well in a pull through setup.

Yes, I have- and it's difficult. The trimmer line has to be thick enough to support a good size button through thousands of pulls. The trick is getting a hole drilled in the center of the felt pellet just so, to prevent it splitting. It's also tough because the volume of material in the line expands the pellet for a super tight fit in the bore- often too tight.

Truth is, when the button is made to the right size, a flannel patch creates a very tight fit with an audible squeegee action. I usually have 2 button pullers made specifically for each rifle- one loose, one very tight. The diameter of the button is usually .200-.210. No two barrels are the same, and a button that's tight in one bore might be loose in others.

The pellets sound like a good idea, but in actual practical use, they're more trouble than the benefit they provide. You will waste many by the hole tearing through the side of the felt. If you go with lighter line, the button won't last- especially when exposed to the high tension created by a felt pellet.

Trust me, a flannel patch on a .210" button does a darn good job, cleaning better than a boresnake in fewer passes.

By all means, please do experiment with pellets, and report any pertinent info here-

I just had a thought... The VFG pellets are designed for use on their proprietary thread in jag... It would likely be feasible to cut the threads off of a jag, drill it, chamfer it, and affix a line. That setup might work very well...

Unfortunately I don't have one of your tools but I can see what you mean when you say the line would expand the pellet as it's passed through

If you purchase a ParchWorm from our forum sponsor, they sell them with the felt buttons, or you can by them separately That tells me the VFG pellets should work fine. http://patchworm.com/patches-felts.html

Has anyone made or "invented" a limited breech pull through brush?

For pistols like the Ruger Mk series, Browning Buckmark etc??

The Otis limited breech brush (with small threads) on their 177 cal wire doesn't even fit!

I called them and they are phasing that out and may be making one that will work?

I would rather make my own. I have the trimmer line and can pull patches but would like a brush also.

Any ideas?
