Cleaning Ruger 10/22 bore

Postby shovel1966 » Mon Aug 24, 2015 5:03 pm

I have always cleaned the bores of my 10/22s with a cleaning rod from the muzzle end. I was looking at a drilling fixture tool that will allow you to drill a hole in the back of the 10/22 receiver so you can clean the barrel bore from the breach end. To accomplish this method of cleaning, the receiver has to be removed from the stock, the trigger group removed and the receiver stripped of the bolt and springs.

This seems like a lot of extra work just to clean it from the non-muzzle end. How important to some people to be able to accomplish this? What, if anything, am I missing? :?: I've owned 10/22s for a very long time and have never run into a problem or issue.

Any thoughts, ideas, or comments on this drilling tool jig or methods of cleaning the 10/22 bore?

Clean mine from the muzzle end. Not worth the aggravation or effort to drill a hole and clean from the breach end.

Same here, unless I use a Boresnake or other pull-through.

Some folks don't even bother with the bore on a 22. It's not like it gets leaded up.

I clean the bores with patch and rod, but I just don't think the trouble is worth the benefit to drill a hole in the receiver just to be able to clean from the breach end. I guess it's not just me who thinks this way.

I use a Boresnake. If the barrel is particularly dirty, I might follow up with a shot of Ballistol and run a new fat tennis shoe shoelace. Follow up with some Rem oil. If the smell of Ballistol is offensive or you're concerned about the chemicals in this, use some FrogLube.
