Modular cleaning rod guide concept.
 
PLEASE NOTE –This is the original Shooting SHED site however it has now been updated to the ecommerce site at www.shootingshed.co.uk and my Shooting SHED Journal at www.shootingshed.co.uk/wp

This one is sized for a Rem 700 Action. The cleaning rod is really a cleaning rod system, the nose section is sized to the chamber and has an O ring to stop bleed back of cleaning fluid, it screws in so you can screw a new nose section in for a different chamber/rifle.

The rear section is sized to the cleaning rod to be used, so it needs to be placed on the cleaning rod before a jag is attached, this ensures the rod is guided very accurately, again it can be swapped out so different sized rods can be used.

The cleaning system locks into the bolt handle recess and has a spring that forces the nose of the rod into the chamber at a constant pressure so no chance of pushing the rod in too hard. The stop with the handle is sized to fit the action so it keeps everything straight. material is all aluminium so it will not damage the receiver internals.

I am waiting for some springs to arrive and thinner section O ring for the rear rod guide and the cleaning port does not show in these pictures.

I was thinking of a black hard anodised finish.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Combination neck thickness and bullet/case run out gauge.
 
Set on a single block of aluminium this allows the user to check both bullet/case run out and neck thickness by moving the DTI from one position to the other, the tooling for this is to suit both .284” and .308” bullets and additional calibres can be added. The run out section will take most case/bullet combinations from .223 upwards and allows for rimmed cartridges as well.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Bearing surface comparator and overall length gauge.
 
This is a the MkIII version utilising a long travel DTI, it is a combination gauge used to measure bearing surface length for .308 bullets and by changing the top and bottom tooling can be used to check OAL reputability. Not shown is the setting gauge for the OAL, this checks alignment and gives a pre-determined length to use as a zero for the OAL.
