Bore Tech’s Patented RIMFIRE, BOLT ACTION PATCH GUIDE features 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, gun 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 eliminates damage to the firearm’s chamber and ejector by preventing cleaning rod contact. 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 Rimfire Patch Guide allows for quick and cost effective rifle model/caliber changes. Simply loosen the set screw located under the patch plate and remove the adapter. Additional adapters are available for most popular .17 and .22 caliber rifles and are found on the Rimfire Patch Guide Adapter page.

How To Determine The Correct Rod Length For Your Application
Bore Tech Rimfire Patch Guide Use Instructions
1) Remove bolt as per manufacturer’s instructions.
2) Insert Patch Guide through the receiver until seated against the base of the chamber.
3) Position a dry patch of the proper size on the patch plate and apply cleaner or oil to the patch.
4) Push the rod forward catching or “spiking” the patch and proceed down the bore.
5) The patch plate also allows for application of cleaner to brushes.
6) To remove the Patch Guide from the action, pull the guide back away from the chamber and out of the action.
NOTE: For Rimfire actions with exposed bolt releases/sears it may be necessary to pull the trigger while attempting to remove the guide. This releases the pressure against the guide allowing it to be easily removed.
To Change Adapter
1) Locate hex drive set screw under angled patch plate.
2) Using an 1//8” hex key loosen the set screw.
3) Remove adapter.
4) Insert new adapter. Adapters must be rotated to the correct position so the angled patch plate faces directly up. For Rimfire rifles the section of the adapter that is cut away needs to face down.
5) Tighten set screw.

Q: How long are the Patch Guides?
A: The Rimfire Patch Guides are approximately 13.5 inches in length.
Q: Do the Rimfire Patch Guides seal inside the chamber?
A: No, due to the wall thickness determined by the case it is not feasible to machine an extremely thin wall. This thin of a guide would become damaged and break.

A: No, it is not possible to machine a groove for an O-ring into Rimfire guides due to wall thickness restrictions determined by the case.
