you guys with a single six (22lr/22magum) whats you system for cleaning a single six? the kits that buy, about the only thing i can get down the barrel is a rod and a brass brush. patches are impossible unless i cut them so small they appear to me now to be doing any good. i am a fanatic when it comes to cleaning my guns and taking care of them.
any suggestions would be appreciated
thanks

Hoppes 22 patches seem fine for cleaning the Single Six.

I remove the cylinder, clean it with Hoppes 9, run brushes then patches through each cylinder hole. Then clean the barrel the same way. The gun cleans up very quickly.

Have a Single Six Hunter and use a Hoppes Bore Snake on it. Works well, and very easy to run through.

Dido on the bore snake, add a little Rem oil and an oily rag, and I'm good to go.

Spray some Rem oil on the snake's copper brush,
a little extra on the material before and after the brush,
three passes through the barrel, wipe it down and DONE.

Ditto Redleg you gotta love Hoppes no 9.......nothing like the smell after a good day in the field.:)

I use a long, wooden q-tip to run Hoppes
down the barrel to keep the crown in good shape.
Let it set. Then very carefully use a brush to loosen
the grime. Couple of patches. Run some Eezox down
the bore with another wooden q-tip. Couple more patches.
I use regular q-tips on the cylinder. Toothbrush around the
fron and back of the cylinder and around the forcing cone,
and all around inside the frame. One patch to clean the muzzle.
Doesn't take too long at all and is actually relaxing.

I ran into a similar problem with a .177 cal. pellet gun...talk about tiny!

Took a piece of dental floss, tied it around the patch, so it sort of looked like a little bow-tie, added a sewing needle for a weight, and that worked.

Poor man's bore snake I suppose.
