What are the best tools for cleaning shotguns?
Personally, I prefer a one-piece wooden rod for cleaning guns about home. When off on a trip I take along one of Marble's shotgun "Pull Thru," which consists of a brass gauze brush in the middle of a stout cord, at one end of which is a loop and the other a slot for drawing through an oiled cloth. The loop is put over some projection, the weight dropped in the barrel and held in one hand, while with the other the gun is worked back and forth. Modern black and smokeless powders burn to a pure carbon which has no corrosive effect upon the metal of the barrel, and if removed within a reasonable time and a little oil applied to prevent rust from moisture, little trouble will be experienced in keeping a gun spick and span. It is like most everything else. If attended to regularly it is an easy task, but if trouble is allowed to accumulate more difficulty will be experienced. I have let some of my guns go a week at a time and then when they are cleaned they came out as bright and shiny as new.
