Kleen-Bore is known worldwide for the highest quality, most innovative gun cleaning products available. We are an authorized Kleen-Bore distributor and offer the complete line of Kleen-Bore products. I've personally selected several of our most popular items. The Classic Handgun Cleaning Kit features some of the best made cleaning components in the industry, neatly nestled into a custom organizer tray and then securely packaged in a rugged, reusable polypropylene storage and carrying case. The Rod in this kit is made of a smooth, high grade steel (for maximum strength) with a black oxide finish and rotating handles. This kit includes a plastic muzzle guard to protect the crown of the barrel during the cleaning process. Also included are 2 oz. Formula 3 Gun Conditioner, double-ended nylon utility gun brush, Silicone Gun & Reel Cloth and 100% cotton patches.

I think the tools work great, they're sturdy, maybe a bit weak in the construction, but I've never had an issue. The container and red molding is also quite cheap looking and feeling, but it does the job very well, and the price is exactly right. So if you picked up a firearm, and are new to this whole thing, this is a great place to start for you. Also there is a cleaner/lubricator all-in-one included with this kit, so you can certainly just use this. But my recommendation is to get yourself some of the other products out there that will last you for a very very long time.
Finally just wanted to touch on the case itself, it's build with a similar quality to a tackle box, but slightly thinner plastic. However it's great that this kit is built into this box, it makes for really easy storage, and doesn't look like an eye sore—something I certainly didn't think was a big deal, but definitely appreciated once I got it.
It's a good cheap kit to get you started. I've used it to clean a 38special, 9mm, and a .380.
The kit comes with (at least mine did) a small bottle of CLP gun cleaner, lubricant preservative in one small squeeze bottle. I tend to not lean towards one-in-all cleaner lubricant, but it's good stuff I am sure, 4.5 stars on amazon. I used it, seems to clean and lube just fine. Keep in mind most of ALL gun cleaning stuff like Hoppe's No. 9 and lubricants are petroleum distillate products of some kind. I tend to like one product to just clean and another separate product to just lube... seems the combo deals have to compromise somewhat? Maybe not. My preference really.
With that said, the Kleenbore comes in a nice box, which is a good thing. It has a standard handle/rod tool, standard bristle BORE brush (brass) and cotton cleaning patches, to shove through your barrel to apply cleaning solvent, clean and dry barrel bore. Plus it has a two ended nylon brush, one small and one large. A tooth brush would work, but this is trick nylon brush.
Most of cleaning is just wiping it down. DO NOT SLATHER your firearm with solvent. Second DO NOT OVER LUBE...Third people spend way too much time and money on cleaning their gun. If I had it to do over I'd buy a bore tool (the rod) and brush seperate, without solvent/lube or cleaning patches. I would buy everything else separate, a bag of cleaning patches, dedicated cleaner (like Hoppe's #9 or other like Birchwood) and dedicated lube (too many to mention but Mil-Comm synthetic or Hoppe's Precision Lube). I went with synthetic grease... The CLP it comes with is fine I am sure... It would cost more but you would get more...last a long long time.
My last comment is most gun stores rip you off to some degree without some preferred customer discount. Walmart or on-line is best bet. Bottom line I recommend this kit, even though I personally might have bought my cleaning gear differently next time... If you are like me and end up buying different individual items, "ala carte", it would be better to skip the kit, just by the rod tool separate, along with buying separate cleaner, lube, cleaning brush (toothbrush) and cotton patches.
