Bore Tech’s patent pending Action Cleaning Tool Wipers are the industry’s most innovative and effective method for meticulous cleaning a bolt action rifle’s locking lug recess and action.
The action and locking lug recess on a bolt action rifle has a tendency to collect brass shavings, powder residue, debris, bolt lug grease, and solvents. This accumulation of debris can cause operational malfunctions and increase wear on your bolt, bolt lugs, and action. In the past, these areas have been difficult to properly clean/dry and are often neglected. Not anymore!
Our exclusive, patent pending molded rubber wiper eliminates clumsy dental rolls and ineffective felts that fall off, barely clean, and pack full of fouling rending them useless. With the new Bolt Action Wiper simply spike a patch over the rubber wiper and observe how it perfectly conforms to the action walls providing a thorough and complete cleaning in a fraction of the time.
The Bolt Action Wiper fits most popular 2-Lug Centerfire Bolt Action Rifles with 0.695”-0.700” bolt body diameter.
The Universal Wiper fits actions with 3-Lug Bolts and Smaller/Larger bolt body diameters and are easily trimmed to size for a perfect fit.

Bore Tech Action Cleaning Tool Wiper Use Instructions
1) Screw Wiper onto the end of a non-rotating rod.
2) Center Spike a patch over the tip of the wiper.
2½” Round Patches are recommended for the Bolt Action Wiper
2¾” Round Patches are recommended for the Universal Wiper unless trimmed smaller.
3) Next, dampen the patch with Bore Tech C4 Carbon Remover and align the wiper with the action. Insert the aligned wiper into the action and push the rod forward until the lug recess is reached.
4) Rotate the wiper in the bolt lug recess while lightly pushing against the barrel face and pulling backwards against the action face. Repeat with a damp patch if necessary until clean.
TIP: Insert the wiper 1-2” into the action and mark the rod & handle at 12 o’clock with a marker. Once finished cleaning and before pulling the wiper out of the lug recess area, rotate the handle so that the mark is showing at 12 o’clock. This perfectly aligns the wiper with the action for trouble-free removal.
5) Finally, using a clean patch repeat Step 4 until patch come out clean/dry.
Bore Tech Universal Wiper Trimming Instructions
To properly fit the Universal Wiper to your action, please follow the steps below;
1) Remove the rifle bolt from the action.
2) Stand the rifle bolt up on top of a piece of paper.
3) Trace the head of the bolt on the paper.
4) Cutout the traced outline of the bolt head. DO NOT CUT TOO CLOSE to the traced line. The wiper works best when sized slightly larger than the actual bolt.
5) Center spike the paper cutout over the Universal Wiper tip and use as a template. Orient the bolt lugs of your template per the illustration below before cutting. Alternatively, use a hole punch to punch a ¼” hole in the center of the template. Trim the Universal Wiper to size following the paper template.
6) Repeat the above steps to cut the rear wiper blade to size. Be sure to align the template to the previously cut wiper blade.
Q: Will the rubber wiper work in my action?
A: The included rubber wiper fits most popular 2-Lug Centerfire Bolt Action Rifles with 0.695”-0.700” bolt body diameter. For actions with 3-Lug Bolts and smaller/larger bolt body diameters such as Weatherby, Sako, Kimber, CZ, etc. we recommend purchasing the Universal Rubber Wiper.
Q: Will harsh chemicals harm the rubber wiper?
A: No, the rubber compound used for molding the wipers is extremely chemically resistant. However, we still recommend cleaning the wipers after use with water.
Q: What is the recommended patch size for my action?
A: 2½” Round Bore Tech X-Count Patches are recommend for the Bolt Action Wiper. 2¾” Round Bore Tech X-Count Patches are recommend for the Universal Wiper. If the Universal Wiper has been dramatically trimmed down in size, please reduce the patch size accordingly.
I have found these to be by far the easiest and most effective way to clean an action in my 20+ years of LR BR competition.
