    As I was using the brush on my 4095ts barrel I noticed that I felt a twist only part way down and the same pulling out.

    So is it partly rifled?

    Anyone that owns a rifle probably should own a bore light, they range from $5-$15. But you can almost get by using a regular flashlight.;)

    There's another possibility. It's actually common for bores to vary in width, so if the barrel has a spot that's a bit oversize but still in tolerance and your brush is a bit undersized or worn...you could feel it.

    In old .22s, it's also kinda common to find slight bulges where squibs were shot into, though that's less common on a .40, due to higher pressures. But possible.

    If you dont have a bore light get a white peice of paper and hold in the bolt end of barrel and shine some kind of bright light at the paper while looking down the barrel its not the best but will work
     
  8. Hold a white strip of white paper into the open chamber, and stand next to a lamp.the paper reflects the light up the barrel.poor mans bore light
    Sorry didn't see post above.

    Or just use a finger nail. All I ever used till I got a bore light.

    Ok, I got it. It's rifled all the way and what a twist.

    I have used shiny coins to reflect the light for years. On the very small bore barrels you may need a flashlight.

    Good to hear!

    Now you need an expensive tool to measure the bore.:D

    Just teasing. Is the gun accurate? If so, no worries.:)

    Yeah it's plenty accurate. It seems funny that I don't feel a twist on my rod til I got near the muzzle.
