Must Have Gun Cleaning Tools

Gun Cleaning Tools

Today is gun cleaning day, so I wanted to make a quick plug for a couple gun cleaning tools that are on my “must have” list… The CTK Precision P3 Ultimate Gun Vise and a J Dewey Cleaning Rod.

The P3 Ultimate Gun Vise from CTK Precision securely holds any firearm in place during cleaning, or other maintenance. Adding to the gun vise’s versatility is the optional Shooting Rest Attachment, making this unit a great accessory at the shooting range as well.

As for the cleaning rods from J Dewey… they are quite simply the best I have ever used. I have the nylon coated rod, but they also offer brass and stainless steel rods.

The first gun up for cleaning today is the Smith & Wesson M&P15T, which I’ve equipped with the Burris AR Riflescope.
