How It Works
Magic Bore® is a total cleaning system designed for everyone who needs to clean a shotgun. It does not matter if you shoot once or hundreds of times a year Magic Bore® will clean it quicker and better than any other cleaning system out there. It works on all cartridge types be it plastic or fibre wad. Magic Bore® removes all types of fouling faster and even with or without oils or lubricant. Magic Bore® is the only cleaning solution where you can use most cleaning oils and fluids without fear of destroying the product, unlike other products on the market.
The Hand Kit and the Drill Kit have been designed to work together to be the ultimate in shotgun barrel cleaning solution. The Hand Kit is designed to be taken with you to a shoot and kept in the back of the car. It is recommended that you use the Hand Kit, every time after you have finished shooting.
The Drill Kit is designed to clean ONLY the first 2/3 of the barrels - down to the end of the forcing cones - and it is designed to remove any stubborn lead or plastic fouling that may have built up or for that first clean after using competitor products as your gun will NOT be clean. It is NOT meant to be used from the choke end or you will distort the brush and reduces it's effectiveness from the end that it is designed to clean. You will also need to use the Hand Kit to push the powder out from the remaining 1/3 of the barrels after using the Drill Kit.
All Magic Bore® kits are designed to last a lifetime with only the best and highest quality components and materials used. Each kit also contains consumable parts that are designed to be replaced when worn. All kits are interchangeable and all parts are custom to Magic Bore®. The two brushes are custom designed and manufactured to Magic Bore® specifications and are designed to work in conjunction with the material covered rods. The rods are made of aluminium and the material used to cover the rods is the best and highest specification cleaning material available to date. It is seamed and spiral wound to create more surface area which in turn creates more heat and catches more dirt.
Magic Bore® works on friction and builds up heat fast. The rods and brushes are designed to fit optimally to build up heat as fast as possible. The brush dislodges any deposits and the material attracts, captures it and holds onto it. It works on any gun even back bored and over bored barrels. If you attach the brush directly to the handle you can even clean your chokes individually and it is the only solution that you can safely clean the barrels properly on a semi auto while it is still fully assembled.
The Magic Bore® drill kit is the first ever drill kit on the market and it is specifically designed to remove plastic, lead and fibre wad deposits fast. It is completely gun safe with clever design features to completely protect your gun from anything metal including the drill. It is designed to work in the first 2/3 of the barrels only and this also makes it easy to use in the drill. It works dry as well as with most oils or cleaning fluids.
You will never get dirty using Magic Bore® cleaning kits as everything is deigned to be housed in its own tube. You only ever touch the handle or the tube (hand kit) or the drill and the tube (drill kit) and the push fit tops are designed to be tight so not to shake loose if you keep it in the car or take it into the field.
Why Bore Snakes and mops do not clean barrels – the scientific reasons.
There seems to be a lot of people out there who seem to be under the misconception that a Bore Snake or a full length Mop clean barrels properly. Well neither do, they only remove the burnt powder residue, they do not remove plastic or lead fouling - FACT and here is why:
To understand why they cannot remove both lead and plastic fouling we must firstly look at the composition of plastic wads. Plastic wads are made from High Density Polyethylene HDPE for short or Low Density Polyethylene LDPE for short. Steel shot generally uses HDPE plastic wads and cartridges containing lead shot generally use LDPE plastic wads. Now we know this we then need to look at what can break down or remove these two materials.
No chemical alone will remove or dissolve plastic fouling or lead – that is safe to use on Firearms – FACT. You need heat and to remove both plastic and lead, some sort of scrubber. This is why a Bore Snake or any type of full length mop will not remove lead or plastic fouling. Magic Bore kits are the only kits that have the BEST brushes AND the BEST mop material that heats up the fouling and removes it fast.
