ShooterJohn pointed these out to me awhile back and I thought I'd pass it on for you as well. These items make clean up a lot easier!http://www.sinclairi...o...&type=store

We undoubtedly have the widest selection of cleaning rod guides in the world. Our cleaning rod guides are machined from solid Delrin, which completely protects your action, barrel, and cleaning rod. Each “O” ring rod guide has a snout that seals the chamber with a silicone “O” ring. This keeps solvents from backing up into the action and dripping into the trigger area. This style of rod guide is available for over 1,000 different bolt action models and cartridge combinations. If we do not have a rod guide for your bolt action, we can probably make it if we have the necessary dimensions. These non-stocked rod guides are considered custom rod guides and are a few dollars extra (please allow 2 to 6 weeks). Measurements needed include bolt diameter, action make/model, and the cartridge).

This item is a "must have" for cleaning your AR-15/M16. The Link separates the upper and lower assemblies, but holds them securely to allow easy breech access for bore cleaning using a Sinclair rod guide. Made of Delrin™ and stainless steel, it is virtually impervious to solvents. The Link uses the rear locking pin and rear locking pin hole and installs in

Interesting. I guess if you use a patchworm, you wouldn't need this? The little stand-off piece....why not just pop the pivot pin out? Is it so you can have the rifle clamped on a cleaning mount?

What is a patchworm?

Is it so you can have the rifle clamped on a cleaning mount?

Correct. I clamp my rifles in a gun vise when I am cleaning them.

A patchworm is similar to a boresnake without the brush. PatchwormAs for clamping your rifles, that makes sense. I need to get me one. I usually just lay it on a towel on my workbench. <_<

Instead of the patch worm I like the Otis setup as it has brushes you can pull through. You can make the patch worm your self with a piece of weedeater line melted on the end. That's what I used to use before buying the Otis setup with all of the extras.

Time waits for no one--
treasure every moment you have.
