    I am on the search for a nice cleaning kit for this gun. This gun is a pain for me to clean at this moment. It's hard to find a jag small enough to get down in the barrel. Any sugesstions for great Ar15 cleaning kits? Also I was wondering what a couple of items were. After searching myself for cleaning kits I found two items that I still don't understand their full purpose or if I need them. First was a product by Gunslick call the bore guide. I don't quite understand the purpose of using this product. The other one is not so much a product but something I read that I want to make sure that I'm not doing to cause damage to my gun. I read that you don't want bronze cleaning rods going down the barrel of this gun and that you don't want marring caused by hard jags. I have a cleaning kit with plastic jags so I'm not too worried about that but the bronze cleaning rod one I have been doing. Is this a major problem?

    It might interest you to know the GI issue cleaning kit for the M16 rifle contains a jointed steel cleaning rod, bronze bore brushes, and a Steel patch jag.

    A brass rod or a smooth steel rod will not harm the bore.

    I'd get a brass or aluminum jag and toss the plastic jags you have.

    Those plastic ones can pull off the threads inside the barrel with a tight patch, and then you got a real chance of damaging the bore trying to get it out.

    Yeah I was thinking about getting rid of the plastic jags as well. Are these names of cleaning kits you guys gave me just for AR 15 or are they actually cleaning kits period? Since I want to get rid of the plastic jags can I get some suggestions over cleaning kits with brass or aluminum jags? Thanks for all your help!

    I have an Otis kit and a Boresnake that go in my range bag. The "GI" kit has never been used though it's in my range bag too.

    I agree with RC on the Kleenbore SS rod and accessories. I've used then for years on all my firearms and never messed up a barrel.
