GLORYFIRE Gun Cleaning Kit Elite Designed, Rifle Handgun Shotgun Pistol Cleaning Kit

Why It Made the Cut

Otis, Gloryfire, Outers, Boosteady, and Hoppes are all popular choices, and the Gloryfire Universal Gun Cleaning Kit is my pick for the best gun cleaning kit for beginners. The Gloryfire Universal Gun Cleaning Kit has everything you need to clean your guns—and probably even some things you didn’t think you needed. Rods, brushes, mops, loops, patches, etc. It’s all here. 

Key Features 

  • Durable storage case
  • Multi-caliber compatibility
  • Wide variety of included tools


  • Sturdy case will last a lifetime
  • Huge assortment of cleaning tools


  • No cleaning solution or oil included

Some gun cleaning kits come in cheap packaging with no means of actual storage. Worse yet, some come in so-called storage containers so flimsy that they break after just a few uses. Not the case here. This kit from Gloryfire comes in a fitted, hard plastic case that abides by the motto, “A place for everything, and everything in its place.”

With an assortment of rods that screw together for different length barrels (and two handles), this kit is perfect for your handguns and long guns alike. It also covers various calibers by including 14 different size bore brushes and nine assorted bore mops. An often overlooked tool to have is a good hand brush, and this kit has three with different bristle types in each.

The only downside to this kit is that it doesn’t come with any cleaning solution or gun oil. In a sense, this is a good thing because everyone has a different favorite to use. A nice touch, though, is the two included bottles for you to store smaller amounts of the solvent and oil of your choosing.
