Keep the clean-up to a minimum when cleaning your guns by making a throw-away dirty patch receptacle from a discarded water or soda bottle. Drill or cut a hole in the cap just slightly larger than the muzzle of your rifle and slip the empty bottle over the muzzle. Patches get disposed of without having to handle them, and when you’re finished cleaning the rifle, throw away the bottle with the patches inside.
Quick Rifle Clean-up
Lancaster County was the center of longrifle manufacturing for several decades and as such, offered employment for a great number of workers and saw the rise of great names in riflemaking. No real assemblage of early American firearms is complete without Lancaster-made rifles.
