What kinds of kits and accessories do you guys use to clean your firearms? I use a crappy Cabela's kit, hoppes #9 solvent and rem oil. Also have a little bottle of sig oil.

Rusty Duck cleaning kit and lubricants mostly. I have a ammo box half full of fuel oil that I drop parts in or my stripped down revolvers and pistols to soak in while I do other things. Blow them off with a compressor and I am good to go.

Militec synthetic oil works very well. Wilson combat lube also works well. I have used both on a glock and they have worked well. Other than that I use the standard stuff (Hoppes 9, Remoil, etc.). They seem to work well.
Have you had problems using the regular stuff?

big bottle of rem oil and bore snakes. all you really need. unless you dont clean your firearms often that you might need something to breakup the built up of junk.

After I'm done shooting I usually lock the slides back and toss them in the bed of my truck and on the way home I hit a drive through car wash.

I have a very large plastic utility/tackle box that has a shoulder strap on it. It holds bags and bags of patches, bottles of solvent, small tools, lots of jags and brushes, some parts, screwdrivers, pistol cleaning rods, cleaning brushes, cut hardwood dowels for cleaning, and quite a bit more.

I don't buy kits. I buy what I need and probably what I think that I'll need one day...
