Not all gun cleaning kits are created equal and in this article, I will teach you how to go about building the best one for all your gun cleaning, polishing, and overall gun maintenance needs.
The first item you’ll need is a Hoppe’s deluxe gun cleaning kit, which will serve as the backbone for your ultimate gun cleaning kit build.
Once you get it, make sure to take out the gun oil, and place it somewhere safe, cool, and out of the sun in an upright position to prevent the oil from leaking out overtime into your kit… which it will most definitely do if you don’t by the way.
Another bonus piece of information is to place your gun oil bottle in a Ziploc back, and then do the things mentioned above, this way the oil will evaporate overtime at a much slower pace.
Now on to the second set of tools you’ll need on the road to creating the best gun cleaning kit imaginable, which is a double ended polymer metal set of picks, coupled with a nylon, brass, and stainless steel brush set. I know, I know, it sounds crazy, but you’ll thank me later… believe me.
Finally, if you have a firearm with a shiny finish, such as a bright nickel finish, you will want to purchase yourself a Riedel microfiber polishing cloth, which was originally designed for polishing wine glasses, but thankfully works like a dream on shiny firearms as well.
All of these pieces mentioned above combined should create for you the absolute best gun cleaning kit the world has ever known, and I have the utmost confidence that you too will agree once you get it all together, and put your own gun through a good cleaning with it for the very first time.
