The Tools You Will Need To Clean Your Disassembled Gun


We left off at Breaking Down The Gun [part 2 of 4]. In particular the Glock 19. As stated in my previous blog entry, the Glock 19 is my primary EDC firearm. I did include some cool videos from popular YouTubers breaking down common firearms as well, links to their personal YouTube page.

So after we take our firearm apart to do basic maintenance, it will be important to have the proper tools on site to clean your disassembled firearm (frame, barrel, spring, and slide).

The tools we are going to discuss are bore brushes and patches as well as your solvents like the one included with the BT-101 kit being used in this gun maintenance series. So lets get started on the bore tools ... Pretty much you will find that most of your bore cleaning tools will look similar in concept and design, not all but most. some will use a cable system or a rod system. The one I have is a cable system. I actually bought this kit on Amazon.com 2 years ago. Online stores like Brownells.com, Aimsurplus.com, Cheaperthandirt.com, and Basspro.com will also fulfill all your gun needs, which would probably have a vast array tools and product for your firearm needs compared to Amazon.com.

The name of the bore cleaning kit I have is called the Real Avid Gun Boss Universal Cable - 12 & 20 gauge, .17 - .45 caliber pull-through gun cleaning kit. 😅 I know it's a mouth full! Only $24.30 at the time now its $30.36. I felt this little pack would be very convenient, efficient, and durable to last at least a decade. This universal kit works for me because I own multiple firearms ranging in different calibers. I also wanted to plan for the future knowing I would expand my gun collection in years to come. Lets take a closer look.
