Ok Guys,

I thought, I would clean my QB 79 again,
it now has 1-1/2 cans of pellets thru it,
and started on it's second cyl of Co2 etc.

I can see pellets doing the Hoochy Choochy corkscrew when shot now,
and never seen that when the bbl was clean, so it probably needs a good cleaning.

Ran into a problem when scope mounted,
if using a rod, you can only clean up to the bottom bbl port,
without dumping any gunk into the TP hole etc.

Don't sound like a good Idea, IMHO.

How do you clean from the breech to the bbl ?
I am not going to tear down and remove the bbl just to clean it.
I figure out another way to get it done.

I thought of a Bore snake, but don't know it the drop weight/brush's are small enough,
to get past the very short distance from the bolt nose/chamber etc.

Thoughts/suggestion or Idea's?

Tia,
Don

Can make a cleaning "rod" from weed whacker line. Melt a blob on one end and use that to pull patches through from the breech end.

Thanks Guys

I'll try the weed wacker method first.

You guys don't use a soft brass brush, only a patch?

Do you find that is enough to clean the bbl?

Tia,
Don
