    Nah! You don't have to rebarrel. It's just a class 'A' b--ch to get them out. In extreme cases, the barrel does have to be removed.

    Re: More opinions on Bore Snakes

    I have to ask !!!

    Why would you stop half way and pull It backwards ?

    You should NEVER stop a brush or patch half way through the
    bore even with a good cleaning rod or you stand the chance of
    damaging the bore or sticking the patch or brush.( Not good ).

    The worst place to reverse the brush is in the crown.

    Bore snakes are made to pull through the bore and not seesaw
    back and forth through the bore.

    They are the best way to clean a semi automatic rifle like the M1 ,m14
    and any other semi automatic that would other wise be cleaned from
    the muzzle.cleaning any rifle from the muzzel risk damaging the crown.

    I can't amagine anyone getting one stuck unless they use the wrong
    size.

    Personally I have no idea, I've never used one. I just like plain old one piece rods.

    Re: More opinions on Bore Snakes

    I pulled a bore snake through a 30" custom barrel ONCE.

    It scraped so hard that I nearly had an anxiety attack. I was sure that the thing left scratches and screwed up the barrel. I guess it didn't.

    I did not like not being able to not rub on the muzzle while using the thing.

    Thus my experience is only ONE pass.
