The Tipton universal bore guide will help protect the bore and action of your rifle by properly aligning the cleaning rod and reducing solvent overflow. Cleaning without a bore guide can allow the rod to "bow" and rub or gouge chamber and throat of the bore causing real damage and loss of accuracy. Keeping the rod properly aligned not only protects your barrel, it directs the force exerted on the cleaning rod handle allowing tight patches to be pushed more easily.
The Bore Guide is simple to use. 1) Install the appropriate tip for your rifle 2) Remove bolt and insert guide 3) adjust sliding collar for snug fit into chamber and tighten thumbscrew and your ready to clean.
