Remington SQUEEG-E

Post by SgtDog0311 » Mon Mar 13, 2017 10:42 am

When I shot in yesterday's match I noticed some of the wipers using an orange Squeeg-E plug on their wiping rods. I'd like to try them. Looked like something I'd rather be bumping into the crown on the way back through instead of a brass jag.

Anyone using these know what size works well with Arsenal patches for a 38 caliber? Any other comments on their use?

I asked the question for a 40 caliber and was told 9mm gave room for the patches and found referenced (two actually #17127 and #17126) but not sure about the correct size for my 38-50. Someone mentioned "35" when I asked about the 38 caliber but I don't see any reference to "35" on any of the Remington links.

I'll post the link for reference but if anyone is using they likely don't need the link.

.35 would be for 35 cal rifle and 38/357 handguns. They're both .358.

I would think that size would work with the 38-55.

Thanks for that RL-7. I'll give it a try soon. Was a little confused since there were two that showed 40 caliber, one of them being the one you suggested.

The 30 caliber rifle works well for 38 caliber. Use the .357 caliber squeegee for 40 caliber and the 40 caliber squeegee for the 45.

Currently using the 9mm size in my 40 and the 40 cal size in my 45 and they are working very well, using MP 7 and CRC BlueTrue Tap cutting fluid. Very easy clean up, when done for the day. :D

Let me add a bit to this thread.

The 9mm squeegee is used in a 40 caliber rifle with patches when wiping between shots.
Likewise the 40 caliber one in a 45 caliber rifle.
I use them with 2or 2-1/2 round flannel patches from Brownells.
I feel the rubber allows the patch to conform better to the lands and grooves.

I got "introduced" to the Remington squeegee's by some Gentlemen who drive down to Ridgway from MI.
We chuckled at the sound those squeegee's make going down a rifle barrel on the line.
One of my goals is to learn how to play a few bars of Dixie when wiping between shots.

The wiping fluid recipe that Grumpy was referring to, was something I stumbled on trying to re-invent the wheel.


First, buy this stuff.

Then get some of this. I buy mine by the gallon wherever it's cheapest
http://m-pro7.com/products/gun-cleaner/

I mix it in one of these.
https://www.zep.com/product/zepcommerci ... al-sprayer

Fill it to the 1st line with the CRC cutting fluid, then fill it to the last line with M-Pro7.
To mix it's shaken, not stirred.

I use my wiping patches on the very wet side and don't mop my chamber after wiping as it gives me more aiming time.
One wet patch down the barrel, load, aim and drop a chicken :-)

And I in turn was introduced to it by 45bpcr, who provided me with all the necessary information to mix, and shake,and what to mix and shake, and my first 9mm squeegee. Thank you again Craig.

Hope to see you at Ridgeway this weekend.
