Thread: Do pull throughs really work?

  1. #1

    Question Do pull throughs really work?

    i am really interested to see if pull throughs for shotguns really work so when i come in from lamping i dont have to spend loads of time cleaning the gun and which are the best pull throughs?

    Its abit like washing your face and behind your ears when really you need a good bath

    Its only a short time measure !!!!!

    I dunno the boresnake is very effective and quick, unless there is excessive lead fowling from the likes of days on the one or two passes with a bore snake will do the trick. No need for flannelet either, just pop it in an old sock and throw it through the wash.

    I'd advise against a bore snake in a .410 or rifle however, bit mroe prone to problems if the thing snaps.

    If you buy a decent one and wash occasionally they do a pretty good job on shotguns, with mine it otherwise wouldn't get cleaned every outing. If you are particularly anal about the slight piece of lead marking then maybe its not for you but they pull out all the powder residue and my barrels come up pretty shiny

    I do use them in shotguns and have used them in rifles to remove any initial loose powder/fouling.

    I use them with the Napier solvent in a big can. 2 pulls down each barrel and the bores come up lovely.

    Do still clean properly from time to time, but with shotguns I have become a lot less fussy than I used to be.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I spray a load of napier down my shotguns, leave for half an hour, then put a boresnake through until they're gleaming (1-5 times)

    Rifles are another matter, but for a smooth-bore shotgun I can't see why you'd used any other method!

    I have boresnakes for all of my guns. I find it very effective on the 12ga. Like another posted said, sometimes it takes two passes and a bit of spray but that is when its very fouled up. I suppose it would depend on what carts you use. But for me its very effective. HTH

    I've used them since they came out but don't know if they do what they were ment too,you can't see unless you have a camera type thing to see,my guess is not really,probaly good for getting out any rain that got inside

    As above. I give mine a quick wipe down with kitchen roll then an oil cloth and pull it through wth a bore snake then every couple of months I give it a good going over inc having the ejectors out.

    Why do you need a camera to see if a 12 guage barrel is clean?
