      Wow. That's quite a list.

      Thanks a lot for compiling it!

      Do I really have to have all that stuff just to clean & lube my M14?? GI3

      Having this problem once a long while back myself, I can tell you the wooden dowel won't work.
      The problem is a wooden dowel that is thin enough and the right size to fit into the barrel to push on the plugged patch is not strong enough for the push needed and will snap like a twig.


      What you need is a good quality rod and bore guide to push that plugged patch out.
      You can invest in a Dewey nylon coated which is high quality or go the little bit cheaper route and get a good Dewey brass rod and make a bore guide out of something or buy one too.

      The sectional rods, even though compact to store, are terrorists looking to kill your barrel and crown.
      The best system for compact and general cleaning I've found is the OTIS, but it still leaves out that rare time a patch gets stuck, where that rod is needed.
      Soaking the patch with more Hoppe's cleaner/oil till it's all wet will also help unstick it and soften it for the trip down the barrel.

      I use OTIS exclusively now, but still keep a Dewey brass rod and guide in my case for those unseen times.GI8

      well, got a dewey rod guide, however it doesnt fit my socom 16... any advice?
      thanks!
      I'm a bit of a newbie here myself so if I'm wrong hopefully someone will enlighten us both.

      I assume you bought one of these: http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/productdetail.aspx?p=5631 (Brownells stock number 234-014-014)

      If so, I did the same thing and it just didn't work (I guess if you take the flash hider off?). So I then bought one of these: http://www.brownells.com/aspx/ns/store/ProductDetail.aspx?p=81 (Brownells stock number 022-100-014). Seems to work a lot better, don't have to try to take off the flash hider or anything. Oh, and this is on my M1A Scout Squad.... dunno if there'd be a difference with the SOCOM 16 model

      Quick question for anyone that reads this:

      I am looking to get a bore guide, this one in particular:

      http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/ProductDetail.aspx?p=81&title=M14/M1A BORE GUIDE&s=462#462

      Will this work with the Scout's Muzzle Break? The scout muzzle break looks to be about 5/8" in diameter.

      Took it to the range today for the first time. This scout is a joy to shoot. It got a lot of attention at the range too. It was shooting about 10" low at 100 yards from the factory. I'm still working on getting that zero, but my 100 yard groups were about 5" from a bench rest w/ the irons. I have no experience so I'm pretty happy with that, and am looking forward to improving.

      I will say that Winchester Supreme CXP2 .308 ammo smells like something that should splash down in porcelain.

      (I can call Dewey monday, but I figured I'd ask here first so I can perhaps place my order sooner).

      I need to order a muzzle guide and rod (I only have the otis system so far). I have a standard sized, custom built LRB m14, but seeing I'm in the PRK I had to add the muzzle brake and opted for the one from Smith Enterprise.

      The Dewey muzzle guide page says they have one for the CA legal brake, but meant for the .75"dia. Springfield model. The Smith model I have is .86" dia.

      Will the Dewey guide still work? Is there another model I can use? Does anyone else use this same brake and which guide do you use? Am I missing something very basic about cleaning an M14 from the muzzle end?

      Brownell's carries this guide ( http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=81/Product/M14_M1A_BORE_GUIDE ), that is meant to fit a flash suppressor exactly, but someone had posted here that you had to use a .22 cal rod. And I'm not sure it'd fit the brake as well.

      Thanks!

      There are two Dewey bore guides advertised for the M-16. Make sure you get the one for the M-16 (M-16-1) with the Flash Suppressor and not the one for the M-16 with the bull barrel. It's a snug fit, but it will work.
