Cheater Block & Blow Tube


The Cheater Block is so named to prevent the shooter from using more than 5 shots for score.  It is in the NRA Silhouette rules that, after the sighters, you go for score and can have only 5 rounds out.  The Cheater Block holds those 5 rounds out of harm’s way—preventing dirt from getting in the bullet lube, and is just easy to pick up.  Drilled for plugging (use lead), the bottom gives weight so it is not tipsy in the chicken event.  Holes are drilled in the side to hold your Blow Tube if you have one that doesn’t hang from around your neck.

Cheater Block comes in oak typically, but as with most of our products, can be customized to your specs.  We often make them in black walnut to match a shooter’s Classic Range Box, for instance, or Rifle Tote.

Blow Tube is used to put moisture down the bore to loosen blackpowder fouling.  When shooting a string of shots and unable to clean the bore, a blow tube is used to reduce fouling after every shot.  This makes each shot much more accurate; in very dry climates it is even performed after you take a sip of water.

Blow Tube is made of clear plactic tubing (32 inches) fitted with maple ends and a 32 inch leather thong for over-shoulder carrying.  Improve accuracy, reduce fouling.

Blow Tube, $27.00 plus shipping.
