Don't panic. I wouldn't use a brass brush on this gun. I was pulling
felt pads through it with a Patch Worm. It takes a lot longer, but I
actually enjoy cleaning guns and rocket motor casings. It brings back

I seem to recall someone making a business out of cleaning motor

wouldn't mind spending the day sitting in the shade at a launch,
applying TLC to rocket parts with wet wipes and Super Lube. Keep the
cold Diet Mountain Dew coming, and I'd be happy as a clam. Two clams.
Half a dozen oysters, even.

It would probably work just fine, especially with the hard anodizing on
those lovely Rouse cases. Ha! I could get one of those display
dishwashers they used to have at Sears with the clear plastic door so
you could see them in action...

Thanks - when I thought of a brass brush in a .22 barrel, well...
it's kinda like fingernails scraping on my brain's chalkboard.
(back before I 'knew better' I energetically scoured the barrel
of my first .22 with a brass brush on a metal rod, and turned it
from a good 50-yard squirrel gun into a good 10-yard squirrel
you want to know bad gun cleaning practice? In the military we scrub the
bore with all kind of crap, broken cleaning rods, and we can only use disel
fuel to clean the bore... then later we started using military CLP, which is
good stuff from what I heard. But I know one thing, lots of guns we had jams
all the time, alot of stuck casing (which is a sure sign of bad headspace)
and they dont even bother sending it in to get it looked at. I wish I had a
headspace gauge but all I need is a field gauge cause I can bet all of them
will close on a field gauge, unless its brand new.
We even have a few that blew up, I dont know why, must be bad headspace or

no because swords are illegal as well. Knives over 18 inches (I think) that
are sharp is considered contraband.
But thats not to say you can buy a blunt sword and sharpen it yourself....
or even get a steel ruler and sharpen that...

given my last trouble with guns in the USA (a country with a constitutional
amendment that ALLOWS gun ownership) I would not want to find out what kind
of penalty Taiwan imposes for illegally owning/making a gun. One guy said at
least 5 years.
