New: Swab-Its 3-in-1 Bore-Sticks Cleaning Tool

posted on August 4, 2017

New 3-in-1 Swab-its Bore-Sticks are caliber-specific and also include their own handle in the box, eliminating the need for a cleaning rod or jag. Like other Swab-its foam swabs, the Bore-Sticks compress as they enter the barrel. Then, as they travel through the barrel, they expand into the rifling with a 360 degree tight bore fit for precision cleaning and lubrication.

Bore-Sticks handles are made of polypropylene for flexibility. The swabs are washable, making the Bore-Sticks an economical and portable replacement for the rod, jag and patch.

The 9 mm Bore-Sticks will also clean .357, .38 and .380 bores. The company says, “Plans for other calibers are in product development.”

Swab-its foam swabs are a U.S. patented replacement for traditional patches, mops, and snakes. All Swab-its foam swabs can be cleaned with soap and water or mineral spirits for reuse. The Bore-Tips come in major calibers, threaded to the standard cleaning rod, while Bore-Whips come in .177 and .22/5.56. Additionally, new Swab-its Star Chamber Cleaning Foam Swabs for AR-15/M4 and similar Modern Sporting Rifles feature wings that easily penetrate locking lugs to quickly clean the internal diameter of the barrel extension.
