On my list to buy ASAP is THIS. I bought a chamber brush for my AR, but then realized that all of my rod handles were turney (I made up that word...I can't think of what to call a rod handle that isn't solid on the end).

Also a Hoppe's BoreSnake!

RC,

The Dewey Rods which I prefer have the following thread sizes.

17 Cal. 5/40 Female Thread
22 Cal. to 26 Cal. 8/36 Male Thread
27 and Larger 12/28 Male Thread

Check our their website for tips, brushes and other items. Mine have lasted for years and do not harm the bore of the rifles. They are nylon coated rods.

I would get a bore snake. I just ordered one off eBay for $9 free shipping, it will for for my 22 and the AR I am building.

Also get a tooth brush and a bottle of REM oil (Walmart for $8) and you shouldn't need much else.

I use Viper boresnake. It can clean the barrel really good with 2-3 pull through. Put some oil on the end of it on the last pull to lube up the inside. Though boresnake doesn't really clean the chamber so I've been looking for a chamber brush but no one seen to carry it around here so I'm also looking for a good cleaning kit as well. I'm going to Militec treat my ar and I would suggest the same to you as well. It will make cleaning a lot less tedious once your ar is treated and you won't have to lube it so often.

Yep, it looks like J. Dewey products are tops.
They are the very next thing on my shopping list, just after I give my credit card a little rest. Kind of overheated right now.
Thanks for all the comments.

Expensive, but really convenient. I got one, and it is significantly easier than the GI issue to use. One caviat; you have to get adapters to use the replacement bore brushes, as Otis doesn't sell replacement brushes, and their threads don't match up.
