However, shooters who used cable cleaning systems, like those manufactured by Otis, were out of luck…. until now. Rigel products has introduced a new line of triple-purpose bore brushes for cable cleaning kits. They were so confident that these would find a comfortable niche in the market that they spent the money to immediately obtain a utility patent.
For those who have never applied for a patent. You can get a one-year Provisional Patent of a new design for $100. But, if you decide to obtain a regular utility patent, you are looking at an investment of several thousand dollars and a $1,000 maintenance fee every four years for the government to keep it current. That is, in our opinion, a rip-off by the government, but that is the way it is. In any event, the folks at Rigel spent the money and have a full utility patent on their cable-brush system. Their Triple-Purpose Jag Brushes for cables are that good!
The Triple Purpose One-Pull Field Brush works as follows:
- Jag Brushes are triple purpose since a lead patch soaked with solvent wraps around smaller radial diameter bristles, the large diameter bristles at the middle brush, and a patch soaked in oil or lubricant at the rear in the loop lubes.
- The combination of brush with patch does not get stuck inside the bore because the Jag-Brush design features two radial diameters. The front half of a Jag Brush has a radial diameter smaller than the bore, giving it the ability to hold a patch and wipe the bore without getting stuck. The rear half of a Jag Brush has a radial diameter larger than the bore, allowing it to brush the bore.
Boresmith Jag Brushes are for rifles, shotguns, and barrels removed from semi-auto pistols. The 2.75-inch rifle Jag Brushes are longer than 2.0-inch standard rifle brushes. With the cable connector included, the brushes have a total length of 4.25 inches. Which is the reason that the barrels must be removed from semi-automatic pistols.
The cable brushes are available for .22, .223, 5.56 mm, .30, .308, 30-06, 7.62mm and 7.5mm… all of the most common calibers. And, can be ordered with nylon or phosphor bronze bristles. Your choice at $3.25 each is a bargain for what you get.
If you try them, you will probably never go back to standard brushes and patches. You can obtain more information on all of the Rigel Products at their online store at: www.rigelproducts.com. Or, you can call their customer service line at: 1-336-608-9355
