Our recent gun maintenance post got me thinking, I don’t really clean my guns that often. I usually run a bore snake down the barrel and wipe off the bolt and that’s about it. My AKs I usually run pretty dirty, it’s an AK right it doesn’t need to be cleaned? Well eventually they do so I went shopping for some tools that will help make the job easier. I stumbled upon a few neat gadgets from Real Avid for the AK47, I have a Real Avid AR-15 Tool and I love it so I know Real Avid makes good products.
The Real Avid Gun Boss AK47 Cleaning Kit is a pretty good all-in-one gun maintenance kit for the AK47 at just $30. It includes a T-handle with 6 threaded and black E-coated steel rods, when combined they form a 28.5″ cleaning rod. It also includes a 7.62MM bore brush, chamber brush, gas tube brush and mop, nylon slotted tip, gas port scraper and a AK47 drift pin punch as well as an 11 function carbon scraper made specifically for the AK gas pistons abd bolts. You get all this in a portable carry bag.
Don’t need all that? There’s also the Real Avid AK47 Scraper which is just the carbon scraper in the above kit but with a little more, it goes for just $20. It helps you scrape off built up carbon on your AK47 gas piston surfaces like the bolt face, firing pin tip, piston face and piston head grooves. It also includes a muzzle brake wrench as well as a flat driver and .25″ bit driver.
