Cleaning Kits - Rifles/Pistols - Mobile ops and for Stay at Home Solutions HOME KIT First, the stay at home kit (not every can of cleaner and scrub brush I own, just a run down of the basics) I tried to include as many items as I could for an example, this way you guys can run with this and comment on your favorite lubricants and cleaners, or whatever floats your boat. You can have several kits set up in case you need to hand some out to family. I keep mine portable, in easy self contained kits. These are genuine G.I. all steel cleaning kits. I replace the standard oil bottle with a new bottle of Rem Oil. My main cleaning kit is a fishing tackle box so I can get to what I need easily. Some things to avoid: The "homeowner" targeted cleaning kits, especially the cleaning rods made out of cheap aluminum and plastic. They are a complete waste. Go straight for the all-steel rods, bore snakes and quality steel attachments. Items I find especially useful: Lithium grease, Hoppe's solvent, Gun Scrubber, Q-Tips, backup cleaning rod parts and attachments and lots of patches or old T-shirts. MOBILE KIT You might need one for the range, and you might have another for bug out, and perhaps a mobile kit for hunting. Each could be set up according to your own needs and suit your purposes as you feel would be best. Not every kit needs to be the same. My kit may not be suitable for somebody else, and let's face it, if you don't use your kit, you should not trust it. This is the Otis 5.56/7.62 Sniper cleaning kit. Of course, I modified this one because I didn't like it the way it came. Yup, I used it quite often, and plan on using it if I ever have to bug out. The contents are simple, a bag filled with the attachments and rod, a bag with patches, a bore snake for each caliber and some oil. I think Rem oil works fine, but so does CLP, as I have used this for many years with no problems. No need for frills, and no need for fancy items. I tore out the panel inside and placed all the attachments in a single bag, threw away what I deemed useless, and moved on. I would use the bore snakes as I needed them, and could complete a thorough cleaning at camp when/if necessary. This isn't a thread about cleaning, just the kit used, so I will leave it at that.
