Hoppes Universal Gun Cleaning Kit
If you’re looking for a gun cleaning kit for a beginner shooter then you might want to take a look at the Hoppes Universal Gun Cleaning Kit. It includes almost everything you will need to clean a rifle or handgun such as 3 piece cleaning rod, handle, bore brushes, slotted tips, cleaning patches and bore mops in various sizes. You will need to buy a good gun solvent, oil or CLP though.
The case is pretty nice and should last a long time. It keeps most of the items organized and in place. The 3 piece aluminum cleaning rod will accommodate .22 caliber guns on up to .45 or even .50 caliber guns.
Aluminum is not the best material for a gun cleaning rod but it’s better than steel. Aluminum will not scratch the bore unless you drop it outside and dirt gets embedded into the soft aluminum. Aluminum cleaning rods are lightweight, cheap and rigid enough to be useful. Be careful not to rub the rod against the edges of the barrel or muzzle. The soft aluminum can shave off in the barrel which is not ideal. This kit comes with various size brushes, mops and slotted tips to accommodate a wide range of calibers.
