Still no response from Bushnell/Hoppes.
Sorry for the delay in responding. I remembered this only this morning.It sounds like Bushnell-Hoppe's told the Chinese to make cleaning gear and didn't follow up to insure compatibility with standard threads.
The brushes I bought are "almost" the right threads, but not quite.
I'm wondering if the brushes are actually a metric thread.
I agree without reservation.On another site a member lives close to Bushnell/Hoppe's offices.
He stopped in and spoke to the receptionists about this.
She promised to have someone call him.
So far, no attempt to contact him so obviously the company has no interest in responding to customers.
So, buy American made cleaning gear.
Until further information, I won't be buying any Hoppe's equipment or bore solvent until I know where it comes from and what's in it now.
Hoppe's has been in business since 1903 but has voided all that history and customer loyalty.
