    Geez, those gunshops at the basement of Makati Cinema Square don't carry boresnakes.


    Does anybody know any gunshop that sells boresnakes in Metro Manila? Appears to be a lot easier to use than most other bore-cleaning methods. Accepts solvent, and is washable too.

    Ante,
    Try True Weight located in Araneta Ave or for the local made brands try Fields & Forest Gun Shop located in Mla. Downtown Shooters Assoc. Gun Club in Binondo.
    Hope this helps

    Thanks guys. Will call them. Probably a good idea to go to the Binondo place too. I hear they have different guns for rent. Why not?

    Stronghand had one at the un Show.
    PB had one or two, but the last time I saw them was in April.
    Haven't seen them since they redid their office/display layout.

    Ano nga yung pangalan ng saleslady sa Final Option Makati Cinema Square. Hindi suplada yon and customers are always welcome kahit hindi bibili. Ok din sa kanya mag standby. Nai-iinip siguro.

    OO nga, I drop by there (Final Option Cinema Square) once in a while. Most of the stuff is Glock-oriented. The shop is at the far end of that corridor, kaya tahimik lang dyan. Casa Armas/Twin pines/RIA etc. seem to get more of the action.

    I heard before they were anxious about shifting their lines to the Steyr models. Not sure what happened after that...

    Two weeks ago i checked final option in greenhills, they still have four or five boresnakes in stock. But i ended up buying the local boresnake at fields and forest near my place(taytay rizal. It serves the same purpose and it's only 250pesos, compared to the imported boresnake which is 1450 pesos! hope this helps!

    kay laiza, 1,300 lang. saw it at dnd kanina. if you use fmj (and you should because its a g22), no need to clean barrel. i followed eyecutter and casmot's advice on this. and they are right. it really pays to follow elders;f

    btw, welcome!;z

    Thanks for the welcome!!

    I shot 50 rounds of reloaded teflon last week thru my 22,
    good thing i did'nt encounter any problems. The previous
    owner of my 22 also gave me 100 rounds of the reloaded teflon.

    is this advisable? using reloaded teflon?

    Nothing wrong with that. I used the local one when I was still there. Is that the same Fields & FOrest in QC?

    BTW,welcome to the forum.
