The BRM Flex-Hone® polishes barrel interiors, leaving a smooth surface finish for minimum resistance and optimum paintball velocity.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), makers of flexible hones and industrial brushes, is announcing Flex-Hone® for Firearms tools for paintball guns. Built with a stiff metal stem and flexible nylon abrasive filaments, these gun tools remove machine lines from stock gun barrels. BRM’s flexible hones also polish barrel interiors, leaving a smooth surface finish for minimum resistance and optimum paintball velocity.
Paintball Gun Manufacturing and Flexible Honing
In a video interview with Bacci Paintball, BRM Chief Operating Officer (COO) Bob Fowlie explains how Brush Research has been helping paintball gun manufacturers since the sport’s early days in the 1980s. Like pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns, paintball guns have metal barrels that require cleaning. Gun maintenance, including interior barrel polishing, is also important for paintball markers.
A former paintball player, Bob “Flex-Hone” Fowlie understands the rules and requirements of this now-popular shooting sport. As the BRM COO explains in the Bacci Paintball video, Fowlie once traded Flex-Hone® tools for paintball guns made by Tom Kaye of Airgun Designs, Bud Orr of Worr Game Products, Rob Smith, and other industry pioneers. Paintball promoter Jessica Sparks is also noted in the video.
Paintball Players Choose Flexible Hones
Today’s paintball players also trust Flex-Hone® technology to provide a superior surface finish every time. In addition to barrel hones, BRM provides rear bore honing tools in a variety of abrasive types and grits. Unlike rigid hones such as honing stones, the Flex-Hone® is self-centering and self-aligning to the bore. The tool’s low-temperature, low-pressure abrading process provides a long-wearing surface.
Paintball players don’t need the tools of a professional gunsmith to improve surface finish and optimize performance. As Bob Fowlie demonstrates in the video, BRM’s versatile and easy-to-use industrial brush mounts in a handheld electric drill, a tool that many shooters already own. Typically, the barrel of the paintball gun is secured in a vise, another common piece of workshop equipment.
Paintball players and paintball manufacturers are encouraged to visit the Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) website, where they can order both the Flex-Hone® for Paintball Guns and Flex-Hone oil. Shooters are reminded to always use the Flex-Hone® with a lubricant, and to choose Flex-Hone® oil for best results.
