Domestically Produced: Twisted Wire Firearm Cleaning Brushes

All firearm cleaning brushes are available in nylon, phosphor bronze, stainless steel and cotton swabs.

Nylon cleaning brushes are ideal for lighter cleaning jobs. Durable nylon fiber gently and safely removes residue from barrels and will not break down in commercially available cleaning solutions.

Phosphor bronze brushes are excellent for moderate general-purpose cleaning. Abrasive, yet gentle on the finish, phosphor bronze brushes quickly and effectively remove performance-impeding residue.

Stainless steel rifle cleaning brushes are used for the toughest cleaning jobs. Ideal for removing caked-on powder residue and burn marks, our stainless-steel brushes are available in multiple fiber diameters and sizes.

Made from 100-percent cotton for maximum absorbency, our cotton swabs are ideal for removing any cleaning solution after cleaning. Custom swab designs include colored cotton, combination swab/brush, and step-trimmed models.

The Importance of Proper Gun Cleaning

Firearm users know that keeping a firearm clean is a critical responsibility and is often compared to the importance of properly maintaining a vehicle. The number one reason for maintaining a clean firearm is safety. A firearm that is not regularly cleaned is prone to all sorts of safety issues including slam-firing, or the premature, unintended discharge of a gun that happens as a round is being loaded into the chamber. In the same way that vehicles require regular upkeep, firearms must be cleaned to stay in safe working condition and be free from damage.
Deposits from the rounds fired, as well as carbon buildup from the charge, are left behind in a gun’s barrel, requiring a regular cleaning regimen to optimize use as well as extend the life of the barrel. A firearm cleaning kit typically contains all of the items necessary for good gun cleaning, and an important component of any gun cleaning kit is the brush. It should be of high quality, maintain its physical characteristics during use, and clean the barrel without causing excessive wear.
