Bore Tech’s Patented AR-15/AR-10 PATCH GUIDES feature an industry exclusive, hands-free patch spiking system that eliminates the mess and hassle of correctly spiking patches. These guides dramatically simplify and expedite the cleaning process.
Simply lay a patch over the opening on the angled patch plate, wet the patch with cleaner and push your rod down the bore. The angled patch plate effortlessly spikes your patch, eliminating messy cleaners on your hands, rifle stock and cleaning bench. The Patch Guide also alleviates the cumbersome patch spiking process on longer cleaning rods.
Each guide features precision CNC machined and anodized aluminum components and is designed to precisely align the cleaning rod with the rifle bore. This prevents cleaning rods from dragging on the locking lugs and chamber edges of your rifle. It also minimizes the possibility of damage to your cleaning rod. Simply put, the Patch Guide is a necessary tool for proper cleaning and protection of both your rifle and cleaning rod.
Featuring interchangeable, solvent resistant, front adapters the AR Patch Guides allows for quick and cost effective rifle model/caliber changes. Simply loosen the set screw located under the patch plate and remove the adapter. Additionally, the lengthened adapter design locates the angled patch plate safely behind your optics and also holds the upper and lower receiver apart allowing for effortless cleaning.
Additional adapters are available for most popular AR-15 and AR-10 calibers and are found on the AR-15/AR-10 Patch Guide Adapter product page. If you don’t see a Patch Guide that will fit your specific rifle, please contact Customer Service to inquire about our custom order Patch Guides.
