    Gun cleaning brushes?

    I get this sales flyer and in it is a nice set of gun-cleaning brushes, "the best cleaning brushes you can buy."

    I wonder who buy these. My dentist hands me a new brush every six months and I toss my old one in the gun-cleaning drawer. I've got a bunch of them. Should I package them and sell them?

    I do the same thing. A not so new tooth brush turns out to be a dang good gun brush..

    I agree, and use a toothbrush as well, however, I notice that there are some crevices that I just can't reach... looking for something specialized for that reason, tired of looking at the buildup.

    Sometimes you really need to floss the tight spots.

    Check Otis brushes.
    They have a line with toothbrush width on one end (4 rows of bristles) and 2 rows on the other end.
    They come in nylon,stainless and brass.
    The only complaint I have is that the brass bristles fall out easily.

    In addition to toothbrushes, I use various angled forceps and patches to help get in the tight spots.
