The Definition of Bore Snake
A bore snake is a tool used to clean the inside (bore) of the barrel of a gun. It resembles a short section of rope with a smaller,
weighted cord attached to one end to help feed the bore snake through the barrel. A bore snake often has one or more integrated brushes to help clean the barrel,
and may also be used to apply lubricant. It is an alternative to using a cleaning rod and patches to clean the barrel of a gun.
Bore snakes are made in different sizes for different calibers and gauges of guns.
19 Other Firearms Definitions You Need To Know
A laser sight is an alternative sighting device which enables the shooter to quickly and accurately see where the firearm is aimed even
when lighting or other conditions prevent using the gun's normal sights. Lasers may be located within the grips,
hung from accessory rails at the front end of the gun, or placed within the firearm.
A premature, unintended discharge of a firearm that occurs as a round is being loaded into the chamber.
A material added to an explosive to slow its burning rate.
Something that will prevent or hinder something from happening.
The opening in the bottom of the gun into which a box magazine is fed. On a semi-auto handgun,
the magazine well is at the base of the grip; on a rifle, it is usually placed in front of the trigger guard.
The distance, or clearance, between the base of a chambered cartridge and the breech face (or bolt face) of a firearm.
This is a critical dimension, particularly in high powered rifles. If there is too little headspace, the bolt will not close.
If there is too much headspace the cartridge will not be properly supported in the chamber and the cartridge will expand upon
firing and may rupture, blasting high-pressure gas into the action and possibly into the body of the shooter.
Headspace should be .003" - .006" in a centerfire rifle. It can be checked with a set of "Go and No-Go"
gauges specific to the calibre in question. (See below.) With a standard cartridge, the headspace is
registered by the shoulder, with a belted cartridge, the headspace is registered by the forward edge of the belt.
A malfunction which locks up the gun so badly that tools are required in order to fix it. Sometimes used to denote a simple malfunction,
but many people make a distinction between a complete jam and a simple malfunction.
A misfeed or other failure to fire which can be cleared on the spot and without tools.
Common term for federally restricted "short-barreled shotgun (rifle)" as with a conventional shotgun with barrel less than 18" (rifle less than 16") or overall length less than 26.
A condition (status) of a shooting range that shooters may commence to fire.
The cross-shaped object seen in the center of a firearm scope. Its more-proper name is reticle.
This occurs in telescopic sights when the primary image of the objective lens does not coincide with the reticle.Telescopic sights often have parallax adjustments to minimize this effect.
