Otis Tactical Gun Cleaning Kit Reviews
“The system is well designed. I personally find the Otis system to be a perfect marriage between a boresnake and a traditional rod. I feel that I am getting the cleaning capability and modularity of a rod with the convenience, portability and idiot-proof usability of a snake.
-The actual packaging of the products is very well thought out. I am impressed with how compact the bag is, considering that it truly does contain everything you need to clean the bore of many different weapons.
-It works. Despite all the Cons I am about to list, the fact is I am entirely satisfied with this kit and plan to continue using it for the foreseeable future.”
“The .17/.22 cable is a great thing to have in there – that’s part of the reason I bought this one… getting some oil down the barrel of my .22 when storing it is something that was key to me, and without having to buy a different kit. This one really does it all.”
“This is the best cleaning kit in its class. I’ve cleaned every gun I own with it. I recommend doing some research into cleaning solutions and oil to make sure you’re using what’s best for your gun, but as far as hardware goes, this is all you need. DON’T BUY RODS, they mess up your barrel. Pull systems like this are much better for the longevity of the gun. Everything fits so compact in this kit, you can throw it in your ammo box and do a brief cleaning right at the range, or bust everything out and go wild on a deep cleaning at home. The price for the quality is astounding. I’ve already referred 3 friends to buy this product, and I bought one for my brother for Christmas.”

Real Avid Gun Boss 9 mm Gun Cleaning Kit Reviews
“Nice and compact. Was able to fit the kit for handguns, the kit for shotguns, the swab patched, the stick swabs, a green felt cleaning rug, a smaller bottle of cleaning solvent, and a contained of gun oil in a ‘shoe box size’ carry-all. PERFECT for the field!”
“great little kit. The brush holders work well to avoid crushing the bristles. Has some nice storage areas for pads qtips, etc. The multi-piece cleaning rod is probably the best aspect of this kit as it is in three pieces which can work for pistols and long guns. Hard shell case also protects from crushing for when we jam this thing into our range bags! Overall, great little portable kit for on the go quick cleans.”
“I will continue to by Real Avid products for my weapon needs. This convenient pouch has a nice selection of cleaning tools that fit easily in whatever bag you carry them in. Would recommend.”
“So far so good. A decent little kit with multiple caliber brushes. Small bag of patches included. Carrying case is nice as well. Fits perfectly in my range bag. I can fit a small bottle of oil inside the case as well. Other than that though not much space for anything other than what’s in the kit.”
“…you just want to take a small cleaning kit with you, and this one fills the bill! It’s small enough to fit in just about any nook or cranny of a vehicle, and it’s soft outer construction won’t generate noise or damage a thing. I bought this mainly for cleaning handguns with very short barrels and, for that purpose, it’s been perfect. I’ve used it on .22’s, .38’s, .380’s and 9mm’s and never experienced a problem with binding.“
