Based on the incredible response to a product review I wrote about The Discreet Concealment Guitar Rifle Case from Cedar Mill Fine Firearms, I decided to see what else the Longview, Washington-based family-owned firm had to offer.
The first thing I noticed is that the kit is similar in size and contents to the better-known Otis tactical kit, which retails for around $50,
Cedar Mill’s kit has an MSRP of $16.99.
That’s a savings of $33.
The Cedar Mill kit has all the contents I need to clean a weapon in the field: bronze and wool brushes, a flexible rod and T-handle, a brass adapter and slotted tips, 3”x3” patches, an empty 5oz bottle for the CLP of your choice and a multi-tool I’m still finding uses for.
It has all you will need to clean a firearm from .17 caliber to .308 (4.3mm to 7.8mm), with barrel lengths up to 34-inches.
The kit is light – very light – and compact. It fits easily into a pack, range bag or thigh pocket. I’ll be ordering more for all of my tactical gear bags.
I’ve cleaned two rifles using the Cedar Mill kit – a filthy AK and an AR – and two 9mm pistols. The cleaning gear works fine.
There is ample room in the pouch for additional items: I added two .45 caliber brushes, cue tips and a small toothbrush.
If you are looking for a good-quality tactical weapon cleaning kit at a fantastic price, this one is a no-brainer.
