You can also hit the dollar store for 5 pack of toothbrushes for $1. Lead removal cloths will also strip bluing from blued guns- be careful.

[QUOTE="SmallHands;1375456"]So my bf and i just got our new and first fire arms but We havent got the chance to shoot em yet before we do shoot em i want to give our guns the froglube treatment first. Im not sure what i do really need for cleaning and maintenance but So far im thinking of froglube, silicon cloth, t-shirt patches, cleaning mat, microfiber rags, cleaning rod and a brass bore brush (i really want a nylon bore brush though). Is that a good list or do i need more?[/QUOTE

Get both brass and steel brushes try to stay away from microfiber anything best patches are 100% cotton ( never used froglube ) rim oil has worked in my shop for years and hasn't failed me yet as far as solvents go i will pvt message u on that

seriously....as some have said....use reg. household items and save that $$$.

i use cheap toothbrushes, Q-TIPS, and old socks and undies more than i use any other cleaning items.

i also find a FLEXIBLE cleaning rod to be indispensable.

oh! and i highly recommend wipe out bore cleaner....but i'd only buy it if i have long guns to clean imo....and be careful to cover wood finishes (shouldn't hurt it, but JIC).
