MS Clean- the STANAG Mag Cleaning Case (or Kit!)

Originally pitched on KickStarter, the MS Clean (Magazine Shaped Cleaning Kit) is the first product for MS Clean, LLC. Billing itself as an “Improved cleaning kit case for sportsman and professional use,” the MS Clean is a patented STANAG shaped hard case designed to be easily stored in existing magazine pouches (Author’s note- hopefully away from and not to be confused with your ammo!). It is sized to carry the contents of standard issue cleaning kits and other small accessories. The MS Clean cannot be inserted by accident into a mag well.

The bare case retails for $20 and MS Clean offers a case with standard 5.56 cleaning accessories (steel sectional rods, brushes, etc.) for $35.00. The first production units have shipped and are now available from Saints Tactical. Peter Palma, a previously deployed Marine and brainchild of the MS Clean explains the concept best himself:

On a personal note, it is nice to see my fellow Jarheads getting their brains back after boot camp and finding simple solutions to known problems. I too crushed the CLP bottle in the OTIS soft kits. Now, if there only was a coating or foam on the inside to keep the contents from rattling around during movement…

    My mind is boggled. True genius, we never had anywhere to carry our cleaning kits, so we just threw them away. Thimk people.

    Genius. I think you could make it an outrageous color like Orange or Yellow, and that would basically solve the problem, in addition to not putting it anywhere you might grab it. I think that's pretty intuitive though. It's hard NOT to be conscious of where exactly you've put live rounds on your rig.
