    Thank you. I was up late last night researching and I have it down to 3. The Remington, the Otis Elite and the Gloryfire Elite. I’m leaning toward the Gloryfire because it has both rods and cables. But I can’t find anything on the company itself and from their writing on amazon, it seems to me like it most likely is a foreign manufacturer. Any input from you guys? All 3 kits will do multiple calibers which I have. I liked the idea of having a rod but not sure if I need one. Or I could just add a rod to anything. Otis seems to have a lot of proprietary stuff that people seem to love but it is pretty expensive. Anyone care to weigh in?

    My wife bought me a Remington cleaning kit/bag which contains both brushes and squeegees for just about every common caliber. I can attest that the squeegees work great. Just have a rag or paper towel at the end because the solvent or CLP will splash.

    matter of fact only use solvent once and the squeege removes everything pretty much in one pass through

    I've run snake down a barrel several times, then run a swab w/solvent on a rod and it comes back filthy.

    I can see it useful for out hunting or some kind of event where you only have time for a Q&D cleaning.

    But otherwise not.

    For a quick field cleaning perhaps. But nowhere near as a good as a rod and swab.

    I’m not a fan of the boresnake. I bought one but then wondered about cleaning it. I use the traditional bronze brush, patches etc.
    For shotgun I use a one piece fiberglass rod for the brush and a wood dowel for the patch. It saves time of swopping rod attachments or needing two rods.

    Guns can be shipped directly to and from you to the original manufacturer for warranty work, no FFL required. If the gun is a registered “assault weapon” per the safe act then it is legal for you to own, although I don’t know how high point would feel about sending it into New York. You’d have to ask them directly. If it’s not registered, well probably shouldn’t poke the bear. Those high point carbines are honestly tanks though. My uncle has one upstate that probably hasn’t been cleaned in 20 years and it goes bang everytime, not that I’m recommending leaving a gun uncleaned for that long.

    I think that was my problem when I first started. I went thru tons of patches and the patch still didn't come out clean. What constitutes as clean anyway. I've since kind of stopped when the patches had some little bit of discoloration then stopped. I don't like cleaning them but I know it's a necessary evil.
    I have a GSG too, haven't taken apart that sucker at all as it was too involved. I spray some CLP over anything I can reach run a bore snake thru it a few times and done.
    OK, so I was thinking about this. I know this may sound like an absurd question, but what would happen, say on the Hi-Point (I've come to terms with taking apart the GSG) if I just sprayed a ton of say, Gibbs or Shooters lube into the action and the barrel. Ran patches through the barrel and dried up everything in the action I could reach with patches and Q-tips? Could I really fuck the gun up?

    Also, if you store your guns for a long time after shooting, you really should clean them after you shoot. Carbon buildup will attract moisture over time, which creates sludge and rust.
    Bingo. Thats exactly my problem here.

    Keep in mind the brush leaves a residue that can turn the patch blue/ green. An aluminum rod can cause black on cleaning patches.
