What is the major difference between bore snakes and the normal brushes available?

Here r few informations regarding them,
The Bore Snake is definitely the world's fastest bore cleaner. Crafted with a series of built-in brushes, it combines all the cleaning processes into one simple step, effectively cleaning your bore in a single pass. First, an initial floss area brushes the action then removes loose grit and debris in the bore prior to the main scrubbing. Finally, the main floss, with 160 times more floss than a standard cleaning patch, super-scrubs the bore to a mirror-like finish. Brass-weighted drop-through cord slips easily down the barrel, simply grasp and pull cord through the barrel - one pull through does it all. Lightweight and compact, it's easy to take to even the most remote hunting destination. There's no exposed metal to damage the rifling or crown, and no assembly is required. And it is solvent safe, washable and reusable hundreds of times. Available for rifles, shotguns and pistols.

It was Pull-Through initially, but our Jawans made it Phultru! :->

Well, the main advantage of a Bore Snake is that you can carry it very easily in the field. It is as good as a standard bore brush and some tissue paper.

Normally costs around $14-$17 in the US. So 1200/= is a pretty good price for it. I have used them and can vouch one of the best cleaning products around

I think the concept is the same as Kulachi rightly said. In the British era it was "Pull Through" and later on became Phuluntru. It can be found in every armoury across the country. Specially in the armed forces these things have kept the firearms in pritine condition.

as Balazona mentioned in this topic about this stuff.

phul-tru ( pull through) is such an easy-2-use for barrel cleaning... lube ur gun's barrel a little.... inset the pull through from breach side. and take it out from muzzle... doing it 5/6 times shud be nice. in army/police, is ki boht practise hoti he. but i wonder abt one thing... we dont use some custom made pull thuru's.

we simply make them :) a lace ( if im right with the spells. reshmi tasma ) and that piece of cloth... ( dunno the english word for it... we call in CHINDI... ) and pull thuru is ready... works great.

2ndly.... as far i hve experienced.... when u r cleaning ur barrel with a pull-thru. its ok put some oil/solvent in it, then using pull thru works great. i hvnt heard anything in department armoury about not putting the oil in barrels which has lands and grooves ( lined ) during cleaning.. offcourse before firing barrel shud be zero percent oily.


regards.

You can make them at home very easily. You can use your old vests for it. Spread it on a flat surface. Cut the bottom hemmed part out. now cut about 2~2.5 inches (for 9mm, .38, .357 etc) horizontal strips from one end to another. It will (should) be a jointless circular loop. you can make 6~8 from a normal vest. now tie a 6~8 inches long piece of nylone cord, or heavy (200~300 lbs) fishing string at one end, making it circle around the circular strip. You home made desi Phluntru is ready. For the price of one imported, you can make about 100 such from brand new good quality vests.

First make only one to see if it fits properly in the barrell, too thick will not pass easily and too thin will not clean properly.

Soak one ln light machine oil. first pass through one dry PT 5/6 times, then the oily one 3/4 times and lastly dry ones again to clear the excessiv oil from the barrel.

Use a small torch to light the inside of the barrel from breech side and look inside the barrel from muzzle side. If you see clean shiny barrel surface. you are done.

May i suggest using a common cotton rope of the appropriate diameter

I have tried that too but it did not clean the barrel as god as the home made PT's partly because the rope is made of stiffer fiber and has a fixed shape / dia. If the rope is thicker than the barrel dia it becomes difficult to insert in the barrel and if it is thinner than it does not clean the surface properly.

As PT's are made of softer material you can easily twist it to shrink in dia, insert in the barrel and let go of the other end. this makes it fit into the barrel snugly and clean evey bit of it. But that's from my personal experience, others may have a different view.
