Cleaning Rod For 452 and 455



Log in to see fewer ads
Since I have purchased 3 CZ's in the past year I have been cleaning with a patch worm and once in a while I run a clean bore snake with solvent thru followed by dry patches on the patch worm . I want to get a bore guide and 1 piece stainless rod for deep cleaning to remove a carbon ring buildup . Should I get a 20 or 17 caliber rod for proper clearance ? Would prefer the 20 if they offer proper clearance . All 3 rifles are 22 calibers .

My recommendation would be for a good polished stainless steel .20 cal rod, I use a Proshot after seeing 90% of the ARA Benchrest shooters at our club use and recommend them. There are more expensive rods and I'm sure they're great but for the money I'm very pleased.

I use a Pro-Shot .17 cal SS rod. Works great!
Pro-Shot makes good stuff.

"If" you do indeed have a carbon ring buildup, just use a short cheap rod extention, chucked in a drill, slow speed with a stiff nylon brush and some Flitz or JB paste on it. Dont need to go more than 5/8-3/4" into the chamber so a guide isn't even necessary. Takes about 10 seconds and then patch out the residue.

A ProShot or Ivy Rod in 20cal is the ticket.

I've been using a Dewey coated air rifle rod. It works. I already scraped up my Dewey .22 cal coated rod though. The .20 stainless sounds ideal for the job.

Try using your existing patch worm with Kroil and an Otis pull through brass brush in .22 cal.[short brush] to completely clean the barrel. Ottis makes 2 brush lengths.

But, if you think the rod technique is for you, go for it!

The easy way out is this, which I use on all my rimfires, auto and bolt.

I've got two Dewey rods. one 30 cal and one 22 cal. Had them both for about 35 years. They were coated when new. Red some kind of rubber. Took the rubber off many years ago as it seemed to accrue detritus of one sort or another. Rod tips of all kinds are available for them.

I also have pro shots. I use them interchangeably without a preference.

Either would serve your needs well. Just depends on how much you want to spend on rods.

+1 on the Tipton rod, it's what I use after previously using SS. The 22 rod is actually .203"-.204" diameter, Very strong, even when bowed. I don't worry about it marring the barrel or chamber or crown.

Dewey has a cleaning kit designed for 22LR guns. You choose a coated rod length and I picked 10" longer than the bolt to muzzle length to allow for my bore guide. For 22 LR, the Dewey rod they package is .20 cal which is perfect and allows the jags and patch to slide thru with resistance but not to the point of screwing something up.

I have several bore snakes, but they are really hard to clean once they get filled with carbon, grit and crime. It makes for easy cleaning I agree, but they should almost be disposable after a few gun cleanings. Clean patches are a bit more $$ justifiable to toss away.
