While a lot of my readers are based in the UK, many come from the US and the popularity of guns over there means that gun maintenance products are quite popular.

Not only are there numerous guns available, but there is also a wide variety of cleaning kits available for these weapons. If you’re not a gun expert, then you may not know which kits are of the best quality. This can make picking a gun cleaning kit a very difficult task. Want to avoid cheaply made kits? Or even worse, an expensive and good quality one but for the wrong kind of gun?

It can be a hard task, but don’t worry – we can help. If you’re hoping to find out what the best gun cleaning kits of this year are, then you’ve come to the right place as we’ll take a look at a couple of this year’s kits and why they’re better than the competition.

What They Include

There are some things that a good gun cleaning kit will come with, and these are:

  • Bronze brushes
  • Nylon brushes
  • Cleaning swabs
  • Cleaning jag
  • Cleaning patches
  • Slotted patch holder
  • Cleaning rod
  • Double-end brushes

If a kit does not come with all of these things, then they’re probably not worth looking at. After all, if it doesn’t come with all the standard cleaning tools, then it may not be a good quality gun cleaning kit.

Best Gun Cleaning Kits

You could search best gun cleaning in 2018 on the internet and spend your time exploring for a kit that’s both of good quality and affordable, or you could read on and take a look at one of the cheapest and one of the best universal cleaning kits of the year so far.

  • Ohuhu 28-Piece Kit

This kit will get the job done for beginners and experts alike. The set comes with 10 brushes and mops for 10 different types of calibers, an instruction booklet, and an aluminum carrying case.

It’s also one of the cheapest kits on the market, but because of this, the included components aren’t of the best quality. However, it’s a great one for a novice who doesn’t want to spend a lot on their kit to start with.

  • DAC Winchester Super Deluxe Kit

If you’d prefer to spend a little more money to get a kit that’s of high quality and a little more advanced, then this universal gun cleaning kit may be the perfect one for you. The high-quality pieces come in a nylon bag, and they all have their own designated spot. With a wide range of brushes and mops for 14 kinds of calibers, there’s not much that this kit can’t clean.

However, this kit doesn’t come with a bore snake, lubricating oil or cleaning solvent, so you will need to purchase them separately. Other than that, it’s an amazing kit!

Conclusion

As with most things, you get what you pay for. However, as a beginner, you may not need the best gun cleaning kit yet. Instead, a less-quality and cheaper one can help you to learn more about what you do (and don’t) need to do when cleaning your gun. Then, when you need a better kit in the future, you can simply purchase a higher quality one to replace it.
