    gun cleaning help

    So i was clean an air rifle because it was pretty dirty and was out in rain. i think i was over ambitious with some tissue paper. its a higher quality beemon so i dont want to junk it. But to make a long story short, a whole tissue is stuck inside the nose of the barrel. Ive tried lots of things but cant quite get the thing clear. i went out and bought another gun cleaning kit, stuck on the ram looking attachment, hammered it in for 30 minutes and that rod got bent. i somehow bent the connecting part of the two cleaning poles, so now ive got tissue paper thats probably packed very tight, and a ramrod stuck in the barrel. in summary

    Barrel : [2 inches of air][tissue paper probably 2 or 3 inches] [brass looking ramrod thats 6 or seven inches with a mangled connecter][4 inches of air]

    it .177 cal.

    i poured half a thing of honing oil in the barrel a month a go, seems to have soaked in but its still not moving with a hammer. Any tricks? paper eating chems that dont rust riffling in barrel? idk, im at a loss currently. i dont want to mangle the rifling too bad either...
    Turtle bit me.I thought they were slow....they snap so fast. ................. <3

    What up Money? Sounds pretty lodged in there. Have you tired the wire tips? May be able to chew it out with that.

    If you have a very fine drill (1/8" or less), you can drill a hole in the middle of the tissue paper and it will relieve the pressure it is placing against the barrel walls. Then take a paperclip and bend a very tight "U" hook on one end. Insert the rounded end of the paperclip through the hole you've drilled and past the tissue paper. Then try pulling the tissue paper out. If that doesn't work, try twisting the paperclip to get the tissue to start wrapping itself around the paperclip like a "Q-Tip". Once fully wrapped around it should shrink slightly and you should be able to pull it out.

    this has happened to me before. just use oil and keep it wet. try to take it out the same direction you put it in on .. it takes some patience but it will come out.. if all else fails straighten a wire hanger grind a point on it .. douse the barrell with oil and start chewing at the paper. be careful take your time and you wont beat up the barrel

    ... anybody ever hear of Murphys law? this gun will now be known as Murphy.
    think i just broke a nuckle. also hit my elbow in the funny spot on an ammo can... im SO FRUSTRATED. rarely do i ever clinch my teeth and just wail on something in frustration but that has happened.. seeing your posts, it was a great idea to just pick the paper out little by little. i had no needle so i grabbed the wire cleaner attachment from the gun cleaner and pushed several wires forward with little fish hoom like bends. Well, the twisted wire holinding the attachment in the rod broke. i had a cuss storm quickly stabbed at it, hit my elbow on the can, the being so pissed i punched it all. arg... BAD DAY! think my next plan of attack is to put a wooden dowel in the top of barrel and hammer on the brass ramrod. seems to be my only option.

    If the dowel rod is long enough, carve it like a bit & use it to chew it out. Do you have a pressure washer? Clamp it down & blast it out. I just never had too much luck hammering on things.

    I wasn't trying be a clown. Although other presented ideas sound good (especially FoxKat's), you specifically stated that you don't want to mess up the rifling.....sooooo......gunsmith.
    They'll probably charge less than 30 bucks......and you don't bust knuckles or beat on funny bones by letting an expert handle it. Any gun shop can point you in the direction of a reputable gunsmith. Good luck!

    Don't think it was taken that way. It was good advice.
