Cleaning rod jags and brushes?



Log in to see fewer ads
Im using a 20 cal Dewey rod to clean my 40x and was wondering if I should just continue using the 20 cal jags and brushes or if I should be using 22cal jag and brushes? I got to buy a new jag anyways as I dropped it today and broke the tip off it.

Thanks

The diameter of my Proof Positive 22 rimfire one is 1.14 inches. they all look the same diameter in the picture.

This has been a great rod. Well worth the money.

Will the 22cal jag fit on the 20 cal rod?? Thought I read where the thread count was different between the 20 & 22 cal rods. Might need an adapter. I use Proshot brand rods, no issues on my 64MPR.

You should be using the correct for the bore/caliber jags and brushes.
For the chamber some use a .243 brush to avoid the dreaded crud ring.

The .20 cal brushes / mops have a 5/40 thread; same as .17 cal, at least the ones I've used. 8/32 is the standard .22 cal, so I think you'll need an adaptor if someone
makes them, not sure.

Seems like pulling backwards on a .22 brush, or tight patch, or .22 mop, with a 5/40 to 8/32 adaptor could put a lot of strain on the smaller threads.

Dewey (and maybe others) make a 5/40 to 8/32 adapter. Brownells carries them. Mine has worked fine for the last two years and many uses.

Later,
