If a hole was drilled just big enough for a cleaning rod and acc. in the rear of the 10/22 reciever the barrel would be able to be serviced from breach to muzzle by simply removing the bolt. The reason I ask is that I think multipal install/removel of the barrel would cause problems with the soft 10/22's reciever. What do you guys think?

A company named M.O.A. corp. used to make a SS receiver with a hole in the back just for that purpose. i don't think they make them anymore though. a lot of custom 10/22 assemblers are drilling holes too, either as standard or optional.

You could also get a pull-thru cleaning kit, like an otis. Then you wouldnt have to bother with a hole, or removing the bbl.

I've heard of people drilling a hole for a rod though, and it worked out fine.

+1 - I use a bore snake for all my firearms.

brownells sells a jig for doing this drill hole and yes it has been done to clean from breach to muzzle

yes while i think it would be a good idea if you where still using a rod.. i have upgraded (IMHO) to a bore snake, Rags, and CLP and it cleans as good as a cheap hoppes kit.

OK, bore snakes are an awsome tool however, do you reraly think they work as good as a rod and jhig,brush etc?

Get the Otis kit
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 9:29:08 AM EDT

neat ha?

nice, but i dont use brushes in my 10/22

otis .177 kit works great for me.

I've drilled a butthole in a couple of my 10/22s. An added bonus is that it makes it possible to bore-sight the gun when you install a new scope.

I don't use brushes in my 10/22 either. My Volquartsen THM barrel actually says not to use a brush. The only thing I use it the Patchworm from 20/20 Products. My groups actually get better with a fouled barrel.
Link Posted: 1/30/2006 9:21:12 PM EDT
+ another 1 for the boresnake....

I clean the bore of my 10/22 on odd leap years only.
That's why i bought a stainless barrel.

Looks like someone else read the Volquartsen directions too. No brush or rod.

I just use a simple piece of string with a thin and hollow brass weight on it. I have a loop in the middle so I can insert a patch in the action, pull it one way, and change patches and pull it back. I use string from a spool of survey marker string. It only takes about three patches to clean the bore.

But now you still have to pull the action out of the stock to clean it.

Boresnake here.

How about a "Custom 1022" complete with a milled aluminum receiver and match trigger? It already has the rear hole for a cleaning rod.

Mine is even better than I expected.
