Flex-Hone® Tools for Shotguns

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), maker of industrial brushes and gun tools, announces the Flex-Hone® for Firearms for shotgun barrels, shotgun chambers, and shotgun forcing cones.

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), maker of flexible honing tools for firearms, is announcing shotgun tools that use the California company’s award-winning Flex-Hone® technology. Built with a double-wire stem, the Flex-Hone® for Firearms mounts in a variable-speed electric drill, a handheld power tool that most gun owners already own. The Flex-Hone® for Shotguns also mounts in machining centers, and can be used by the firearms industry to remove machining marks or impart a final finish on smooth bores.

Abrasive Globules and Flexible Nylon Filaments

BRM’s flexible honing tools feature distinctive abrasive globules that are permanently laminated to flexible nylon filaments. Self-centering, self-aligning to the bore, and self-compensating for wear, these gun hones use a low-temperature, low-pressure abrading process to improve surface finish. Brush Research supplies three types of Flex-Hone® for Shotguns tools in different abrasive types and grit sizes. Visit the BRM website to order shotgun barrel hones, chamber hones, and forcing cone hones.    

Shotgun Barrel Hones

Shotgun barrel hones improve the appearance of smoothbores and make shotgun barrels easier to maintain. Choose BRM gun tools for 10, 12, 16, 20 and 28 gauge (GA) barrels or .410 bore. Shotgun barrel hones use either silicon carbide (SC) or aluminum oxide (AO) abrasive. Use a medium-grit hone to remove rough and tight spots from the bore, and then a fine-grit gun tool to impart a bright, mirror-like final finish. When using these shotgun barrel hones, insert the tool from the breech (if possible).

Shotgun Chamber Hones

As this video explains, shotgun chamber hones improve the surface finish of the chamber, the part of the firearm where shotgun shells fit for firing. BRM chamber honing tools have a 3” abrasive part and an overall length (OAL) of 12”. Choose flexible chamber hones for 10, 12, 16, 20, and 28 GA shotguns or .410 bore. Use fine-grit AO abrasive for an ultimate finish.

Shotgun Forcing Cone Hones

Shotgun forcing cone hones are tapered so that this Flex-Hone® tool’s abrasive globules gently smooth the surface of the funnel-shaped area between chamber and bore. Brush Research provides forcing cone hones for 12, 16, 20, and 28 gauge shotguns. Choose medium (180), fine (400), and ultra-fine (800) grit tools in SC abrasive. BRM shotgun forcing cone hones feature a 1-5/8” abrasive part and have an OAL of 10”.
