    I looked at cleaning kits and you end up with a lot of stuff you wont use so i bought a cleaning rod (25) a calibre specific mop, brush and jag (10 for 3), along with some patches and barrel cleaner, thats all i use. Everyone is different as well - some people clean after every outing, i usually clean the barrel out after every 100 rounds or so. Bushwear do a cheap cleaning kit, i think the make is tetra and that has all the above but the rod isnt up to much, i think there around 25.

    Im guessing you mean cleaing the barrel? If you just mean the rifle i give it wipe over with cloth covered in vp90 after every outing and if it gets really wet i take the stock off and give it a wipe undernaeth as well.

    At the very least get a Bore snake, and pull throught 3 times after a day out. then once in a while a bore foam and rod /jag with patches

    Most importantly.....get a bore guide.....will prevent damage to the throat and solvent saturating the stock!
