Every gun owner knows the importance of keeping their firearms clean. Regular maintenance and lubrication will keep firearms functioning properly and safely.

In the past, I have used patches to clean my guns. I never felt that the patches were getting the guns cleaned and oiled uniformly. I always felt there had to be a better way, and now there is with Bore-Tips and Gun-Tips from Swab-Its.

When I first saw Bore-Tips I was amazed at how they fit perfectly to the barrel.  No more patches, no more guessing and they are lint free.

           To provide complete contact with the entire rifling of the barrel, Bore-Tips are engineered specifically for each bore. With 360 degrees of contact you can be sure that your barrel is being cleaned and oiled properly.  They will even thread onto your standard cleaning rod so you won’t have to purchase a new kit. Best of all, they are reusable. That’s right! I said REUSABLE.  Use, wash, dry and repeat! A great way to save money and eliminate piles of used oily patches.

Gun-Tips are also reusable and perfect for getting into the tight angles and small spaces in your firearm. I am now able to get my AR completely clean after spending a weekend stalking hogs. Riding in an open ATV can get dirt places you would least expect and when dirt combines with oil to become an enemy of a functioning firearm.

Cleaning an AR used to be a challenge, with all the angles and small places–it is very easy to snag a patch or even get a cotton swab stuck, or worse unraveling. That is not a problem with the Gun-Tips, they come in many sizes and are perfect for getting in and around small areas without snagging or leaving lint behind.

Fellow staff member Diane Hassinger has this to say about Bore Tips:

I brought Bore Tips Swab Its home with me from the Shot Show.  I showed the bag to my husband and told him they were helping to clean our guns.  He took them out to the shop, and I didn’t think much about it.

A couple weeks later, I asked him how well he liked the Swab Its.  He said they were the best Q-Tips he had ever used!  He really liked that he could get into small places, and reuse and clean them as needed.  I asked if he had used them with our cleaning rods, with that he got them out and cleaned my 30-06.  The product that he loved as a Q-Tip, now became even more valuable to him with its ability to do many jobs.  These products get 4 thumbs us from us!!” ~Diane H
