I shoot a lot of Wolf through my non-chromed Oly. My chamber cleaning regimen is to chuck an old 45 bronze brush in a cordless drill, soak it in Hoppe's #9 and give it a few passes in and out of the chamber. Am I doing any harm with this? Common sense tells me that the chamber is much harder than the brush, but just want to make sure, especially when it comes to the throat area.

Thanks.

Hoppy

You might try using the "right" tool, works very well, IMO. [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=1254[/img] You can get one from GPSS here: [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=25&t=65562[/url] Mike

Hi all, question on the chamber brush, holder, does the rod spin or is it stationary, or does it matter ?

[b]Hoppy[/b]: I admit I have on occasion used power tools to remove plastic fouling in smoothbore shotgun barrels. However, your specific application would make me a little nervous given how both small and critical the throat area is. I’d suggest sticking with hand tools. [b]Iceman_1:[/b] It’s stationary and it does matter. A chamber brush is pushed into the chamber area, twisted a turn or two, and then removed. If you’ve got an old military style pistol cleaning rod with a loop on the handle end, it will work too. (Obviously it needs to be long enough and to have the right threads for your chamber brush.) The USGI M16 cleaning rod will also work.
