I'll get a picture later. I have a plastic tool box for my home made cleaning kit. I have all my oil's and cleaners, bore snakes, towels, rods, in the bottom of the box and my swabs, brushes,bore light and tools in the top tray.
I have a bag in the garage of that stuff I bought that never worked the way it said. I have 2 different 22 cal bore snake that not even Superman himself could get down any 22 barrel. On another forum some guy asked me if I was sure I had a 22 well after 3000 round threw it I'm pretty sure. This guy gave me crap about the snake. I wish you could try it before you buy it. So much cheap crap comes from China now days. I just saw on the news last night about dog treats from China killing over 800 dogs in the USA nothing will be done until it's 800 people.

I have over 5 hundreds of dollars in cleaning rod , bore guides and solvent and a Bore Snake is a super tool for guns you must clean from the muzzle or carry it on a hunting trip to clean or check barrel if needed in the field away for camp . A piece a tape over muzzle stops water and dirt from going it barrel .

Here's a picture of some cotton cleaning pellets I found for cleaning my 22 rifle and pistols. These just work so well. I have some in a bottle of hoppes #9 cleaner and some in a jar of gun oil. I got them from Amazon.

Ya that's what I thought too a bigger box but after looking at so much of the older cleaning parts some of my brushes were just shot. I did a cleaning and got rid of over half of my old junk, I had 9 bottles of gun oil with just a little bit in each bottle. I combined all of them into 1 bottle. It seems we keep some of our brass brushes way to long even the diameter of the brushes has changed over the years.

I need to clean mine out too. Its got a lot of tools in it that I don't use much anymore. No sense of bringing an AR wrench when I'm shooting a Henry.
