They are not so easy or cheap to make as you might think. The man that invented them (and now holds a patent on them) is a member of this forum. With luck, he just might drop you an email or add a post to this thread.

Show yourself, Paul!

There must be a difference in Arsenal patches. The patches I have are on the thin side. Even using a 45 jag in my .44 rifle the fit is very loose that I have to double them.

I have no source for GOOD arsenal patches. Some folks have a stash for themselves and the rest of us suffer. I have washed, straightened and stacked several thousand to be used a second time, but that's all I have. Then it is on with the new ones. Paul, if he would sign in here, had some "custom made" patches. Not cheap but sounds like they work really well.

Maybe we should talk him into making square Patch Poppers so we can use more conventional or home-cut patches?

I just went to Wal Mart and got 4 yards of Cotton Flannel for $3.69 a yd and cut 2" patches. It took about 1-1/2 hours to cut a shopping bag full using a roller cutter. God snug fit through the bore.
I don't know if you can use them in a patch popper or not. Maybe if you have a square tube instead of a round one :D

Paul has talked about making square poppers long ago, but sourcing the material is probably the sticking issue.

Square tube plastic might be. I might still have 2" aluminum out in the shed. Cost might be a little higher but I would think it would work just as well.
Maybe the flannel would stick together when the brush picks it up ?????????

I think the flannel will be fine. I have stuffed my poppers with flannel patches and had no problems. Mine uses bronze brushes, but they could be built with nylon brushes that might be better for some materials - like the NuevoCrappy Arsenal patches.

Paul, Can you post a picture of your patches? Do they look like what Brent has in his poppers? LB

Shooting here in Germany, I´ve found that most people use these: http://www.waffenpflege-shop.de/vfg-fil ... niger.html. They are felt cylinders, available cut to most of the different calibres with a hole in the middle to fit a scew on attachment. They´re cheap and work really well.

rbertalotto wroteCOLONJust ordered a bunch of stuff from Steve at arizonasharpshooters.com.

I asked him how I should pay and he said he'd send all the stuff with an invoice and I could send him a check after I receive it!

I love this about the shooting sports! Folks trust folks! I do this with my 17HMR bore guides that I sell, but they are only $20.....although I've NEVER been burnt, if I was, it is only $20.

Steve sent me over $100 of goods! Derin rods, Delrin jags, Patch dispensers,
Thanks for turning me on to another first class supplier for our "habit"........ :D
Hey guys, I know the above was written a couple of years ago but I just wanted to say this...... I ordered 2 molds from Leo at Boomers Molds in Canada. He sent me both molds but an invoice for only 1. Try before you buy. No way would you get this service in Australia where everything is ' pay up front '. Thanks Leo Bumphrey .
