novice ? - size of cleaning rod for saiga .223

Recommended Posts

Hello - I am a novice with a new saiga in .223 with a 16 inch barrel. The cleaning rod that came in the box with the rifle does not seem to fit the into the bore. Is this possible? If I was to get a new cleaning rod, what size is correct? Would any of the otis products work (they are readily available at a local shop)? Thank you in advance for any advice.

I prefer bore snakes to rods, the only time that I use a rod is when I have a blemish in the bore which is VERY VERY rare.


Just get a rod for a 22LR if you prefer rods, if you try a bore snake, I think you'll fall in love

I use a .22 cal bore snake as well. Can't beat it! For the 16" barrel, the "pistol" snake will work too, FYI.
