I could only purchase a cleaning kit valued at $57.80 in the area where I live. I asked if they could order a .17 cal bore snake. That was 8 months ago & many requests since. Purchased of Ebay after seeing it pop up as a suggested item. The cleaning kit only used once has already failed. The "plastic eyelet thread snapped off, then one rod thread snapped off using as a pull through in the same direction the round leaves the barrel.
No such issues with a Bore snake, barrel is clean as it was the day it was picked up.
