I'd rather carry a 2-bit screw together aluminum cleaning rod rather than a bore snake. First irritation was the amount of grinding I felt and heard as the thing went down the bore from chamber to muzzle.
Second irritation was the amount of effort to pull the thing through the bore which resulted in dragging the snake very hard against the crown. I'm very finicky about my crown!
One trip through and into the waste can it went.
My son uses one on his gas guns.
I'd sure rig another way!
