Do any of yall know if anybody makes a cleaning rod guide for the 17? If so, where can I purchase one? I have seen some out there for the 16 but cannot find any for the 17... I have been cleaning my barrel with a bore snake but want to be able to give it a more thorough cleaning.
Thanks

Remove the barrel. It's designed with a quick change feature of (6) T-25 captive fasteners, which allows ease of access to the chamber and bore so a guide rod is not necessary.

Search this forum for the Dewey coated rod thread.

The other thing is the Otis Nomex rip cord that does not have the bristles like a bore snake.
The Otis advertising markets it as a hot barrel cleaning cord for the first swipe.

I use a Tipton universal bore guide for the 17. Didn't know they made them specifically for SCARS. Will have to check them out.

I've gotten a request to make these, but for the life of me cannot see the benefit.

On an AR, if you break it shotgun-style, and for some reason don't want to separate the upper and lower, the bore guide is useful so crud does not drip into the trigger well. Sort of useful, because if you are truly against cleaning the FCG, something else is strange.

But bottom line, bore guide is good for cleaning in the shotgun configuration.

THe SCAR cannot be broken shotgun style. To get access to clean, you have to remove the lower completely. So why do you need a bore guide?
