The primary use of the Borekisser is as a bore conditioning head for shotgun barrels. Using the felt wheels and polishing compound it polishes and smooths the bore. A highly polished bore stays cleaner, lasts longer, and some say it reduces felt recoil.
Using the scrubbing wheels made of the gentlest non abrasive grade of Scotchbrite it scrubs the bore gently. The non abrasive pads mold themselves to the contours of the chamber, forcing cone, bore and choke, to push out fouling. The pads are used dry, with no oil. They last a long time and can be washed and used again and again. Replacement pads available.
Leather wheels are used for close oiling of the barrel. The tight fit in the bore forces oil into the metal's pores.
Borekisser cleans better- using multiple heads on the shank and by varying the tightness of the retaining knurled nuts the diameter of the cleaning head can be vaired for a firm fit.
Borekisser cleans faster- a few passes with the dry pads will remove fouling.
Cheaper- the Borekisser system costs less than other cleaning heads, uses less oil.
Borekisser is lightweight- it weighs a few grams, is about the size of a 12 gauge shell and with a pull through can be used anywhere, anytime.
In two sizes, for 12 and 16 gauge, and smaller size for 20 and 28 gauge
Money back guarantee. Full refund, of the total you paid, in case you are not satisfied with the product. Simply return within 14 days from the day of receipt.
1-Thread Borekisser onto the cleaning rod using THUMB PRESSURE ONLY. The slot faces outwards. Simple finger pressure is enough, overtightening can harm the soft aluminum threads of the Borekisser or the soft brass of the rod.
Place one soft white foam pad and one hard white disc on the Borekisser shaft, trapping them between the two kunrled nuts.
Choose the appropriate size for your gauge, the large ones are for 12 and 16, the smaller ones for 20 and 28.
2- Pass the rod from chamber to muzzle dry, with no oil, to remove visible fouling.
3- Place a patch or paper towel, wet with your preferred cleaning oil over the Borekisser and pass through the bore.
Let the oil do its work and then pass with clean patches or paper towel wrapped on the Borekisser till they come out clean.
When the pads get clogged with fouling you can wash them by shaking them in a jar filled with a weak solution of water and dish washing liquid.
4-The white Schotchbrite pads are non abrasive. We DO NOT recommend using any other color Schotchbrite due to their abrasive action.
1-Use one felt pad on the Borekisser. Apply a light coat of fine polishing compound on the felt pad. Use only polishing compound, DO NOT USE GRINDING COMPOUNDS, they will score your barrel.
We recommend fine polishing compounds such as Brasso, Flitz, Glanol Gloss Formula, and similar FINE polishing media.
2-Keep using the same wool pad, simply add some polishing compound each time you use it. The more you use it the better it will polish. Use a new pad when it is worn and no longer makes firm contact with the bore.
3-Using a to and fro motion polish the bore in long even moves. Twenty passes is about enough. More will not harm the bore.
4-Then wrap kitchen towl or tissue around the pad and clean off the residue.
It is amazing how much gunk comes out of a bore by polishing, even in a clean barrel!
5-Polishing after every cleaning will yield a barrel which will resist fouling, will be easier to clean and according to some, will kick less.
Polishing is suitable for chromed and unchromed barrels. The fine compounds on the wool felt polish the outermost surface of the bore.
Fine polishing compounds are safe, as they do not remove metal. DO NOT USE ABRASIVES.
We DO NOT recommend polishing with a power drill. The high revolutions of the drill can generate heat which might put the rib solder at risk.
1-Soak a leather washer of the appropriate size for your gauge in your favorite oil. Place it on the Borekisser trapping it between the two knurled nuts.
Pass through the clean bore. The leather makes full contact with the bore surface and forces lubricant into the metal.
We recommend that a cleaning rod is used with the Borekisser. A cleaning rod is also useful in the field and at the range for removing stuck shells, obstructions and debris that might find their way into the barrel. However, it is possible to make a pull through for field use when a cleaning rod might not be practical to carry.
1-Take a an ALUMINUM or BRASS washer and thread through some strong, unbreakable string or fishing line. Tie the line securely to the washer. Do not use steel or iron washers as they might scratch your barrel. Use double strands of line for safety. Allow enough length to reach easily through your barrel.
Thread the free end through the Borekisser and tie on this end a fishing weight no larger than 10mm so it will fall free through any gauge barrel. Pull the Borekisser from the chamber end towards the muzzle.
In pull through mode the Borekisser is smaller than a 12 gauge shell. It can be easily carried anywhere. Use a container to avoid the cleaning pads picking up grit or sand. An empty 12 gauge shell is a practical container.
Thread the 8-32 headless bolt onto the rod thread. Use thumb pressure only.
Using thumb pressure screw the Borekisser onto the threaded 8-32 bolt. The Borekisser has inner threads at the unslotted end only.

If you overtighten the Borekisser use a coin at the slotted end to unscrew it.
