    Just got a new (to me) Guerini Sporter with a full set of Kolar AAA tubes.
    Great gun, great deal, and wonderful transaction from Murray in Michigan through this website.
    Anyway, I have never had tubes before and:
    Some say clean the tubes with a soft patch and minimal solvent.
    Others say it's OK to use a properly sized bore snake.

    What is the Trapshooter's Community wisdom on cleaning tubes?

    Thanks ,
    Alan

    I clean mine with a squirt of Remoil and a boresnake, but I'm really not a hardcore skeeter that shoots thousands of rounds through the tubes. I think I would contact Kolar and get the straight scoop on how to clean them. Mark

    A bag of blick licorice or a big plate of sauerkraut always cleans my tubes. Bud Edwards
