    I have a patch stuck in the receiver end of my barrel. Normally this wouldn't be a problem except I was trying to pull the patch through using an Otis cleaning kit that uses a cable to pull it through as opposed to a rod. I have tried to pull the patch out using fine tweezers but it doesn't budge and I just bring up threads from the patch... i've tried pulling it with all my might and that just got it stuck even more.

    How can I get this out? I can't stick a rod up the other end to push it out because the cable is already in the entire barrel.

    I put a ton of CLP down the barrel to try and get things lubed up and the patch moistened, but that didn't help at all

    HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks

    I accidentally made the patch WAY too big. I just tried pushing with a rod from the other end and at one point I actually had almost all my weight on it and it STILL didn't budge at all.

    shit...

    I had the same thing happen two weeks ago on my sks. Does the brass piece unscrew from the cable? If it does id unscrew the cable and screw in the rod and push it back out that way.

    on a side note, from all the pulling and pushing and just overall straining i put on my cleaning rod over the past few hours, it's SLIGHTLY bend but not noticeable enough to where you can even see it, but when you put it in the barrel you can really tell it's bent. anyway to bend it back into "true"?

    thanks again

    with a slight bend probably never get it 100% straight again, maybe try running it through a vice but if its aluminum becarful not to crush it.

    would lighting the patch on fire work? it's all metal, so i'm guessing it wouldn't hurt anything, and you'd just have ashes of the patch left... would it work, or would you end up messing something up?

    well the thought was that fire is already normally there.. it wouldn't hurt.
