Hope this isnt breaking any rules by posting this since gandermountain is not a sponcer.

Anyways I went to gandermountain today looking for so pieces I was missing from my current cleaning kit and to get some cleaning items for my new PT1911. Well I ran across a pretty nice little kit on sale at around half price that contains MANY caliber sizes in it. Here is the link to the kits. 1 of is a wood case 28piece and the other is a steel case 62 piece. The 28 piece for 12.99 is all I needed to handle my handgun and shotguns. Might not be top of the line but gets the job done. Just thought I would pass this along if anyone is looking for a cheap cleaning kit.

The 62 piece set looks a lot like a Winchester branded kit I purchased at Wal-mart last year on clearance for $12.00

Gotta love finding a good deal on cleaning kits. Those brushes wear down far too quick, and you end up using other caliber brushes and more effort to do as good of a job. Now that o think about it, i need to get a new kit since i've worn out my .40, .45, .9mm, .357, and the .410 brushes over the last year. I can't even complain about the $15 i spent on mine 2 years ago, but i definitely need some new ones to optimize my cleaning time and habits.

The 28-piece looks like the one I bought from Cabela's a year or two ago. Good price on yours, though.

I bought the 28 piece and used it when I got home on 1 12 gauge and my pt1911. Worked well. The only complaint I have with it is the brisle brush that looks like a tooth brush I noticed was loosing brisles easily. To avoid them cause problems from being left in the gun I quit using it. But other than that it was worth the money.

I'll stick with my Otis kits for quality, but you can't go bad for those prices...

You reckon that one of those cleaning kits would work better than just tyeing a bunch of knots in your boot lace, dipping it in motor oil and pulling it through the barrel a couple of times???? :D

I have about ten cleaning kits that were gifts I use a good multi gun cleaning kit that I spent about $50. It has a coated rod and better brushes. I also have the wood kit that you show its a lot of show for something that wears out fast the quality just is not there for good use. JMO

I would buy several thing separately the rods I would use a carbon fiber rods they are expensive but do not damage your guns. And quality brushes and jags. I own several M-16 style brushes for general cleaning. I prefer nylon to Brass or any form of metal. And I love bore snakes to do a quick cleaning in between major tear downs. Again just my opinion.
