5.5mm brass tubing - This is for the manufacture of a brass pull through for my SMLE. Plan is to cut a length and fill it with epoxy and embed the end of a length of string. This is instead of having a cleaning rod. The idea is that you use the brass weight to pull the string through the barrel and the end of the string has a small loop so you can then pull a piece of rag through the barrel to clean it.

Brass coloured metallic Humbrol Enamel - to add weathering and detail to my scope so it looks more correct. Also to paint the end of the pull through so the epoxy doesn't show.

A load of warrior assault systems stuff:

PLB Belt and harness, 2 double 5.56 pouches, 2 quick mag pouches and a dump pouch all in OD. I wanted to get a TM M870 breacher this month but don't think I can afford it :(

That sounds like a bad idea to me - you should try your best to minimise the chances of scratches to the inside of your barrel and, even though brass is soft for metal, the barrel itself is not tempered carbon steel - dragging metal through it will scratch it to some extent. Such fine scratches affect range and can affect accuracy since they have a slightly higher friction coefficient than an unscratched polished surface and this affects the stability of hop induced backspin, ie minute fractions more or less spin on either side of the BB.

 

As there is no combustion, you are never going to need to actually scrub the inside, so you do not need to be able to drag a rag up and down the barrel so many times that a string is sufficiently more efficient over a plastic cleaning rod for it to be worthwhile. If you do ever submerge your gun in muddy water you should disassemble it and soak the barrel in hot soapy water and rinse repeatedly until there is no chance of dragging fine sand through the barrel when you use a piece of rag to clean out any oily/greasy residue.

 

The best method is to use alcohol swabs on the end of those plastic cleaning rods with the slot in one end.

I have one of those vests, Flex. They are excellent. Lighter than PLCE, more versatile than SAAV, and more comfortable than a WAS RICAS. IMO £32 is a bit over the odds, but it does look to be in good condition, and those rocket pouches can cost more than a tenner on their own. The horizontal pouches for maglite and pocket knife are exactly the right size for speedloaders :)

About time I got a proper bag for my guns and stopped using a rucksack. It's smaller too so forces me not to carry all the random sh*t I never use on a skirmish but bring anyway.

I would need a 65 cm or longer cleaning rod. The metal isn't dragged through the barrel, it's just a weight to thread the string through the barrel. You would then pull the string through with the alcohol swab or piece of cloth on the end. I was going to use Brass as it would then look like the real steel cleaning kit, kept in the hole in the stock, which is a lot simpler than carting a 65cm cleaning rod around, if I could find one.

I still reckon you'll do some damage to your inner barrel with a brass weight. Like Ian says, even small abrasions can have a big effect on small, light projectiles like BBs.

 

Might be better off using hardwood or dense plastic. Anything that's considerably softer than the material the inner barrel's made of, which is probably also brass.

My dad likes shooting, He has loads of cases and he has an aluminium one lying around he never uses. I asked him if I could borrow it and as he doesn't shoot anything other than grey squirrels (he hates grey, likes the home breed red, as should be apparently) with his air rifle he never uses it. He just gave it to me, quite pleased with it. Very tight fit so no movement when you shake it. Will take some pictures in a bit, can't identify what it is, its like this

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KEY-COMBINATION-LOCKABLE-HARD-ALUMINIUM-DOUBLE-RIFLE-SHOTGUN-CASE-gun-box-/271425176353?pt=UK_SportingGoods_Hunting_ShootingSports_ET&hash=item3f32338321

however it has the brand name FRANZEN, which I believe do locks, and some gun cases although I have looked on their website and cannot seem to find it. Will upload pictures in a bit, sorry for rambling on.

OK, might try oiling the tube so the epoxy doesn't adhere. That way I get the look of brass but can remove it when actually using it. The Brass tube will also prevent damage to the epoxy from the brass oil bottle that's also kept in the stock.

Soon as I can go somewhere where I'm allowed to shoot them and take video. Unfortunately the air force brass frowns on folks taking pictures or video on base. Also on popping off airbursting pyrotechnic devices.

 

But yeah, probably going to a skirmish next weekend where I can sort it all out.
