New 1. 2. 3. Done! Cleaning Kit From Hoppe’s

One of my favorite relaxing pastimes is cleaning my guns. Somehow there’s not much I find more calming than the familiar motions and smells of taking my time cleaning my guns, and because of that I admit to owning more than a few cleaning supplies and accessories. Yes, I have my favorites, but a new offering is bound to catch my attention, especially when it comes from a company like Hoppe’s.

Hoppe’s has a new cleaning kit out called 1. 2. 3. Done! that’s being offered in several calibers. Each kit incudes their No. 9 bore cleaner and lubricating oil as well as a caliber or gauge-specific bore snake. And for the new shooter or just those unfamiliar with bore snakes, there’s a photographic guide. Remember, clean guns perform more reliably – and better – than filthy ones, so whatever your favorite brand of cleaner is, use it.

From Hoppe’s:

Hoppe’s®, makers of renowned gun care products for more than 100 years, has a new line of gun cleaning kits that make maintaining firearms in the field quick and easy.

    That’s a really good idea. Kinda makes you think why didn’t Hoppe’s do this before?

    as a somewhat new shooter I’m still trying to find a really good convienent kit. I have a crappy walmart special one but a lot of the brushes and stuff are already damaged. Would this be sufficient (perhaps paired with a toothbrush for cleaning slides and innards?)

      I use Hoppe’s solvent and oil and I find it to do it’s job very well. Maybe there’s products out there that are even better, but for the average amateur shooter, a Hoppe’s basic rifle/pistol/shotgun kit should suit you fine. I would advise you to buy more patches. I bought a bag of 1000 from Sportsmans Guide for $6 and it’s lasting me a year, even after loading out handfuls to my dad and friends.
      But, if you use a boresnake, then patches won’t be a big concern. I have a Hoppe’s Viper boresnake in .45 for my 1911. It does it’s job ok, but when I scrub the bore with a brass brush and swab it with patches, I still have a bit of carbon coming out. I find it’s good to use at the range while the powder is still hot. A quick pass or two and it’s mostly cleaned out.

    Or you could just pick up all three of these from Walmart….. most likely at a discount….

    Freshly baked bread and Hoppe’s #9; two of my favorite smells.

    The bore snake is the best thing since peanut butter.
