-Daria Gionta **World's Smartest Cleaning Kit **
The Otis Elite gun-cleaning kit will pull the grunge out of all firearms, from .117 caliber through 10 gauge. Using a coated cable to pull a universal patch from breech to muzzle, the Otis system prevents crud from being pushed into the action. Beautifully made with 16 brass bore brushes, brass cleaning picks, patches, solvents, bore reflector, and instructions, this kit will keep all your firearms factory fresh. A small, portable kit for field use is also included. By far, the finest set of gun-cleaning components I've seen. About $100 from Otis Technology. % 800-684-7486; www.otisgun.com.
