I've recently acquired a couple big game rifles with breaks. I normally clean my bore/barrel somewhere between every 20-50 rounds. Do I need to remove the brake this often too??
What is a good way to do it?
If you have the ported type of breaks it can be cleaned when you clean your rifle without
If they are the ones with small holes they need to be removed and cleaned every time
you clean the rifle.
Vias recommends this every time and even supplies a pin to remove it.
After removal, I use a bore brush and solvent on this type and apply a light coat of oil to the
threads in the break and the rifle.
The ported breaks need to be installed with some sort of thread sealer to prevent solvent
entree into the threads if it is not removed each time.(Strong bore solvents can damage
threads with time.
