Use with care!,

This review is from: CLEANING KIT (Misc.)
A well made kit with only one real reservation on my part.
The rods are hard stainless steel. This means they're harder than the rifle bore of your gun!
You can feel a slight edge and a roughness where the joints screw together. If you are not really careful, you can totally ruin the barrel or barrel crown of your air rifle, should this scrape the bore. This would not be fixable!
I have ground a slight chamfer on my rod ends which reduces the risk and I am very, very careful when using them.
One final thing (a gotcha, maybe?)
If your barrel is fixed (non break barrel), it is possible to push the wire brush down from the muzzle, then find it stuck in the loading port end, near the magazine! This happens because the bristles get squeezed and point back towards the muzzle, a bit like barbs.
If this happens you'll have to dismantle the gun and remove the barrel...
Sounds like a bit of a downer, but the cloth cleaning part and my modded rods have made this kit perfect for me.
