Gun cleaning (.45, 9mm, AR-15, 12ga), critique please!

I desperately need to replace/upgrade my current gun cleaning inventory, so I have put together this lot:

From Amazon:
1x Tipton carbon fiber Shotgun rod
1x Tipton .22-.26 carbon fiber rod
1x Tipton .27-.45 carbon fiber rod
2x 500 pack of Hoppe's gun cleaning patch .22-.270
1x 500 pack .38-.45
1x Otis variety pack of receiver brushes
2x Hoppe's silicon cleaning cloth
3x G96 Gun Treatment 12oz

Then from montanaxtreme.com, I plan to buy all the nylon cleaning brushes & a pick set

If you could please recommend/critique anything else, or possible recommend other good sites to buy gun cleaning stuff

I buy most of my stuff from Brownells.

I generally use Hoppeā€™s No. 9 as my basic cleaner along with some Mil-Comm spray. I have some good ole Break-Free CLP that I also occasionally use.

I'd add some MPro 7. I like Hoppes and use it to soak my choke tubes, but use the MPro for just about everything else. No odor is one of the reasons I tend to use it.. Less complaints from the 'other half'.

I use Gunzilla and the small Otis kit. I use (slit ala Otis style) cheap cotton patches. Bought some Gun Scrubber a while back, but haven't tried it yet.

  • Jags and brushes - I use the Tipton combo set.
  • Perhaps a couple slotted tips or two
+1 on the picks. They are especially useful for getting just that little drop of Loctite where you need it.
