Photo Tutorials - How To: Use the ABS Guides
The J. Dewey Adjustable Bore Saver cleaning rod guide replaces the bolt in your bolt-action rifle while cleaning. The guide allows the cleaning rod to go straight into the bore without harming the chamber or throat. The guides are made from anodized aluminum in 5 tube sizes. An aluminum rod guide collar with threaded brass adjustment pin allows for quick adjustment to any bolt length. The tube features chamber sealing O-Rings that eliminate solvents from coming back into the action, trigger and magazine areas. On some rifles, the bolt stop can be used to retain the rod guide by using the grove provided on the guide collar. On other types, the adjustment pin can be rotated into the bolt handle area to secure it. The ABS can be used with any rod type. Standard ABS rod guides will fit any bolt action rifles with an overall bolt diameter of between .695-.700 inches. This includes but is not limited to the following actions and actions derived therefrom: Remington 700, 721, 722, 788, 40 x x7, 600, XP-100; Ruger 77; Winchester 54, 56, 70; Savage 110, 112 V; Mauser 98; Springfield; Browning A Bolt, CPS, Dakota; 1917 Enfield; Interarm mag, std.; Hart A; Kimber 89; Parker Hale and Stolle.
All ABS tubes allow for brush clearance. Also featured is a milled solvent port. Included with each rod guide is a spare set of O-Rings and an O-Ring assembly tool. Remember that the overall lengths of most models are 10 inches and this length must be added to the barrel length to order the correct cleaning rod length. Scoped rifles should use the -S series, with an overall length of 13 inches, to allow for cleaning without coming in contact with the scope.
These instructions are also to be used for the Sako, Weatherby and other custom adjustable bore saver rod guides.
