ever heard of OTIS gun cleaning systems?


Recommended Posts

Good kits. They make the USMC standard issue cleaning kit now. (I guess the old A2 buttstock kit went out of fasion.)


I have an Otis kit for my 6.8 SPC gun ... But in my opinion, they're a bit pricey for what you get. If you need something ultra-compact (like fit-in-your-pocket-or-on-your-belt size) and portable, or you want a super-big do-it-all kit, then Otis might be your style. If you just want a kit for a single caliber and don't need it to be ultra-compact (got a range bag?) I'd look elsewhere. You'll save yourself about $50.

well, as i plan to purchase the H&K mr556 and mr762, a glock in .40 and a DE .50AE anyway, i'd like to have a do-it-all kit.

i just don't quite see the difference between the military elite:



and the LE elite:



except for the price of course. any idea?

They are a little bit pricey. I use mine mostly for my M1A because it is a real pain in the neck to clean from breech to muzzle without taking the barrel completely off if you are using a cleaning rod. The otis kit is very portable and all around useful, but it does make the cleaning process take about three times longer than using a rod. But for Ar's and shotguns where it is easy to access the barrel for cleaning...I like using a single piece coated rod with patches and brushes

I have this one http://www.otisgun.com/cgistore/store.cgi?page=/new/product.html&setup=1&ida=41&idp=330&his=0|1|330&cart_id=5470886.5200


I have been using it for a few months and it is stocked with every damn thing under the sun... Very nice kit...

Comes in a pretty cool little duffle bag with a very plush inner velvet liner. I like the bore cables better than the steel/brass rods, seems faster to me and this kit comes with a ton of them in different lengths and diamiters.

there's my 2 cents....
