Hafiz has come out with the new Bore Snake Viper which is an upgraded version of the original Boresnake and it is the world's fastest for cleaner. Now I see where you're going with this and I know how much you like things to be clean.

This is a perfect product for you it is and it's so easy and quick to use. So what makes a Bore Snake Viper better than everything else. The Viper has three sets of brushes opposed to two on the original Bore Snake. So you get 50% more cleaning power which means less time cleaning so far.

The Viper has more surface area which means you're not going to miss anything when you're cleaning your gun. You would with a patch. It actually has 160 times more surface area than a patch does know. The Viper also has a cone-shaped bore guide which means it's easy to get in your gun. Now, what about the strength of the Bore`s name because you're going to get quite a bit of resistance when you pull that through the barrel of a gun now is that built a hold of that kind of resistance it is the pull cord is built into the three brush system. So that's going to give you superior strength. Why is the end of the snake orange? That is the marked area where you put your lubricant well. So far I've been impressed with the bore snake now what are the features this is had well.

It's extremely flexible and lightweight. So you can take it with you in the field and you're not going to sacrifice your strength like you would with a take down rod and it comes in one piece. Right, no assembly required. What about cleaning? The voicing Viper because it's going to get dirty it is really easy to clean. Just make sure you bend it tightly or put it in a wash bag toss it in the washing machine, let it air dry and you're ready to go.

You know it wasn't really all that long ago when most hunters and tutors were still using that old-school method to clean their firearms. When I say old-school I'm talking about pushing that old cleaning rod down the barrel with maybe a torn up t-shirt or a piece of paper towel and pushing all that dirty nastiness out of the barrel into the working parts of the firearm right into the action.

Eventually, thankfully we got smart and started using the breach to muzzle style of cleaning which was really popularized by the oldest technology with their smart gun care products. With these cleaning systems from oldest what makes it all possible to have that easy breach to muzzle gun cleaning is their memory flex cables. With these cables, you have screw on attachments that go right on the end of the cables. So you're going to have everything from cloth pushers to debris. Removers to a variety of brushes and accessories that go right on that memory flex cable you just put on the accessory you need.

You push it from the breech out the muzzle and you're going to have a clean gun every time with these systems in this elite cleaning system. When it comes to rifles you've got everything you need to clean from 17 all the way up to 50 calibers and with shotguns. The tiny. 410 all the way up to the big 10 gauge with pistols again. You've got just about everything you need to clean.

Every imaginable pistol another really great part about the elite cleaning system is the folks from Odis realized if you're shooting guns odds are you're also playing with optics, so they included some basic optics cleaning accessories in the sealy cleaning system including a lens brush an anti-fog lens cleaner and also a lens wipe for your rifle scopes binoculars range finders or whatever you might have out there while you're doing your shooting.

The last really nice component of the elite cleaning system is that you also have this tactical cleaning system included in the whole package the tactical system is something you can just grab and go you can shove it in your pocket throw it in a hunting pack and you've got everything within that clean most of your rifles and most your shotguns and pistols while you're on the move in the field the elite cleaning system from Otis technology. It's probably the last gun cleaning kit you'll ever need.

Today I will be doing a quick review on the Hoppe`s number 9 Bore Snake 12-gauge shotgun cleaner. I've had this for about a week.

It is one of the best things I've ever bought for my gun. I love it works so well. As you can see it comes with a brass weight that's stamped with the number 12 for 12-gauge. So you know which one you're picking up. All the different ones have you know the gauge stamped on it makes it easy. And what you do is you make sure that your gun is unloaded and you drop this brass weight through the loading breech and out the end of the barrel and then you pull it until it comes to this part here which is the first cotton part. You can put you know you but gun solvent on it or you can leave it just as it is. This will fill the barrel and scrub. It really well it gets it on all sides touches all sides the barrel simultaneously.

It does much better. Cleaning job than any patch I've ever seen and then it comes to the embedded boar bristles which really helped to get the fouling off and that's nice and then you. Can again have a long cotton section which you can put more you know more gun. Solvent on or a little bit of lube and you again it fills the whole thing and. It touches all the sides and gets all the fouling off really quickly.

It takes about ten seconds to clean the gun, maybe 20 seconds if you want to go through on another pass which is a lot faster than the old way you know of having to put the cleaning rod together and get the proper. Patch, holders, and things like that and cut the patches out and do several swipes with the gun. I mean go several swipes through the barrel just to get it clean.

This will get it done much faster which is great if you're out you know out in the word somewhere hunting and you just want a quick scrub. You don't want to have to disassemble the shotgun what you should. Do everyone's not to get a real thorough clean but this is just for a good basic field cleaning.

It works very well and it has a little loop on the end which helps pull through. Now, these come for all different types of guns you can get them for 20 gauge of 410 you can also get. Then for a whole variety of rifles and handguns and I definitely plan on getting one for my block and my Smith & Wesson handguns when I have the money because these are the best cleaning devices I've ever tried. They cut down a lot on time and I would definitely recommend one if you're looking for just something to help you when you're out in the field hunting.

It's very portable and it's also machined washable which is nice if you in follow. The instructions or you can hand wash it I just hand washed it and left it and hung it out to dry but if you're looking. For a nice economical way to keep your gun very clean to do a basic field. Cleaning I would definitely recommend the hoppy's number nine bore snake and. Whatever size that you need.

Excellent for handguns and shotguns muzzled lighters. Effectively removes lake carbon copper and plastic failing including bearings rust and tarnish adds. Luster to stainless steel surfaces and nickel can be cut and removing unwanted. Residue and inside the chamber cylinder. Forcing cone bore and joke.

It cleans and polishes metal, wood, plastic, glass, and surfaces ideal for sporting equipment. The directions it says all surfaces must be dry before using. Rub a small amount and clean then buff lightly with clean dry cloth repeat until all sub areas are covered stored in the zipper bag with cloth stays dry out don't wash it. And caution these care on blood and. Case-hardened metal finishes and hard. Rubbing can remove the finish so I'm. Gonna get ya you can see the base here. And the forcing cone it's got this black. Rings on here the band marks and they. Will come off with this cloth. It's the forcing cone inside here it's. All black so I'm gonna go and try this now.

You can do it like this if you want. And just polish the surfaces like that and keep moving around or you can go to. Around under the screw here and pull out. The cylinder and it will pop off. And then you can unscrew this here. Having trouble with mine at the moment it's pretty hard so I can't take it off at the moment they have the proper. Clearance for it and then you can get. Access to the middle and clean and. She'll grab it. See here unravel this is how big the. The cloth is so you can just cut little. Squares out and use it to polish it with. Jar properly do. I've got some scissors here I might cut. This little corner ant just cut it in. Half anyway. That way we can cut into those sections. When you finish with it when it beckons. Through the bag close the seal that. Doesn't dry out grab me, and we'll see if they can polish it. The edges here.

It's coming off black here. You can see which should be a good time that the carbons coming off. You can see here starting to come clean. Getting blacker and blacker. We'll come back in a moment like I ever pray might finish that now and as you can see here the face is now stainless. Steel again took the cylinder out a little bit easy.

Take this off later and. Try to screw that clockwise and then I'll come out and clean the inside as well it's a bit easier you can see. That's the frame you got the parts here. That go inside of it and all i used was. That little pony patch here you can see. How dirty of this i use both sides can. Get the maximize and this as you can see. It was the same one it's just used a. Little square patch here at the top and. I just cut it off and that's how you. Clean up the rings off and what you do. Is clean the cone now as well with an. Inside and up the top of the frame here. There's a lot of crap say I'll do that. Now as well.

I finished polishing up. All the parts there okay so you can see that is my carbon here anymore the forcing cone is now done to the best. Of my abilities as you can see here it's. A bit of stretching all along the top. Here you can see it's all shiny now in. The face. Or the firing pin is you can say that. It's like okay you can't get some of the. Marks off and even done this swung the. Crane here so that was the birch wood. Cassidy led remember.

Hey guys vic from Hafiz we're out here at 2019 range day in Las Vegas. What I've got here right now is a Hoppy's Bore Snake borden.

So all of us that had this product, and we'd kept it in a Ziploc bag and you know the metal bristles would punch through the ziplock bag your oil would get over everything what are awesome engineers that Hoppy's have come up with.

This is the ultimate storage solution for this so what you've got is a nice little hard plastic case it stores the product in there keeps the debris and oil away from everything and they've also went another step. And they've incorporated a little pull-up handle so if you have a rough time pulling that boy's guide through the barrel you just go ahead and take that brass pin and come right through and pull it rights through your barrel.

Hoppe's® BoreSnake® Den Bore Cleaner

  • Compact carrying case;
  • Integrated pull handle;
  • 1-pass BoreSnake;
  • Machine washable.

The Hoppe's BoreSnake Den Bore Cleaner includes a compact carrying case that closes tightly and has an integral handle that doubles as a pull handle for the snake. With one pass the BoreSnake cleans bores thoroughly and quickly, using an integrated, tight-fitting bronze brush to scrub out carbon fouling, while the tail clears the barrel of loose debris, and a dedicated lubrication zone holds and deposits lubrication as it passes the bore. The BoreSnake Den bore cleaner is solvent resistant, and machine washable.

I really recommend it depending on your weapon and caliber and everything in your personal preference. It's called a Bore Snake and what this is a is my 12-gauge shotguns. Instead of taking those little white patches and things like that or the little long brush and pushing it down your Bore you can take this little.

This unit right here takes this little weight but you drop down the barrel which is actually each little weights marked on what it is this is 12 for 12 gauge. You drop it down the bore down from the chamber side down the Bore pull it out the front and so basically you're pulling the string and I put solvent right around here so you get a big glob of solvent.

I usually just dip this entire thing and so all the first half so solving goes in then. You have some brass brushes then it goes in. I think it's a little thick and hard and then at the end, you have this which and they show you can. That's how you can store your gun you can put some oil on this and what you pull it through. You can kind of make a go loop with it to. Kind of lock it in the store your gun like that I don't think I would store my gun like that but you know till he will light some people might not like the brass bristles you know metal on metal.

What people don't care for that for my. 12 gauge it works great. They're not too expensive. I paid N bucks for this and I think I overpaid. Well, I don't personally feel like I overpaid but I'm sure you can find them cheaper really look around and just bought it from a gun blast next my house we as well. Have this for the ak-47 and just a. Picked up a 30 cal bore snake and use it. For the ak and they work great you know. After a long day of shooting your gun. Gets pretty free and dirty and this. Think you right through like twice and you've given spotless more.

It's a lot easier. Seems like you know I just it's something I like to do like at even at the range. I'll toss this a nightly beg and after I'm done shooting I was clear. The weapon toss it down the barrel pull it through clean it out real fast and in. That way when I go home it's one last thing I really have to scrub or go down. So you know if you haven't checked him. Out you're thinking about it or you. Haven't bought one or anything you're kind of interested I'd recommend it definitely I'm sure a lot of people know about them in my area there's at gun shows we have people from bore snake or. Whoever makes these actually at our gun shows talking about him so I want sure how come they are around everywhere else but here in pretty common anyways just. Like to thank y'all and hope you all. Have a good day thanks.
