Hoppes handgun, Rifle and Shotgun Cleaning Kit
There is hardly any gunsmith or gun store owner who doesn’t know of Hoppe’s product. It can be found in any reputable store. They are one of the renowned companies and have been in the business for God-knows-when.
The Hoppes standard cleaning kit works on a push-through mechanism, where the cleaning rod/brush/patch combination are pushed through the bore of the gun to scrub away fouling and to apply solvent/cleaning patches.
The kit comes with the following:
- Hoppes #9 solvent, which is believed to be one of the most well-known, staple solvents in the world.
- Basic selections of aluminium cleaning rods and extensions
- A couple of plastic jags
- A couple of patches and patch holders
- Few brushes and gun oil
This is an effective no-nonsense kit. However be careful when using the aluminium cleaning rods to avoid scratching the inner walls of the gun barrel.
- Hoppes Boresnake Cleaning Kit
This is the next generation of cleaning kit from Hoppes. It works on a push-through system, but instead of ramming a brush/patch tipped rod through the bore and risking scratching the interior of the barrel, the pull-through wipes everything clean with subsequent pulls of the cleaning “rope” through the barrel.
The kit comes with:
- Calibre/ gauge-specific bore snake
- 2 oz. aerosol can of classic Hoppes #9 solvent
- 2 ¼ fl. oz. plastic squeeze bottle of Hoppes lubricating oil
- Anti-rust gun wipes in sealed packets
- Extra room for other small tools / cleaning components
The hoop-and-loop closures in this kit keep the pouch of the kit sealed up air-tight.
The Hoppes collections of cleaning kit are some of the best around and we have them ALL here. If you need it, we SHOP it. Take a look around our Cleaning Kit category and make a pick of one of our Hoppes products that meets with your taste.
Ladies, remember that your hand gun is your best friend, more like a lover. He (the gun) could be that one source to save you from a very dangerous situation; so keep him (the gun) clean ALWAYS.
