View Full Version : What do you use in order to have a clutter free gun cleaning space?

I am an 18 year old Sophomore in college and I currently only own 2 guns. So far I have a pretty nice OLL AR-15 and a M91/30. I have a file box full of magazines (for the ar) and extra parts including cleaning stuff. I have about 10 bottles of cleaning supplies just sitting next to the file box also... It isn't a fun experience for me to clean because there is such a clutter and it would be much easier if I could keep everything separated so when I need something I don't have to dig around.

I have looked at the little tool box things on midway usa but it seems like none get good ratings. I also would like a gun vice but I don't know where to find a cheap reliable one.

I move between my mom's house and my condo at my university so it would be nice to be able to move cleaning stuff easily.

i just use a toolbox and a couple of little tackle boxes that fit inside for the small stuff like brushes, misc. parts, etc.

I use a Plano ProLatch 3700 (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000E3C3OE/ref=asc_df_B000E3C3OE852891?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=googlecom09c9-20&linkCode=asn). The link will take you to amazon.com, but you should be able to find them at Sports Authority for about $6-$7. Just set up the dividers for what you need. You may have to cut away a portion of an inner wall if your cleaning rod has a wide handle on the end. Most of my cleaning supplies are in there and it fits great in my range bag. I keep the solvents and oil in another pocket in the range bag to keep them upright.
