I'm hoping this is the right section.

I'm looking for suggestions on the best AR15 cleaning kit. I rather not order each item individually, unless the consensus is that I should. Anyone that swears by a certain kit?

If you're only interested in a "kit", I suggest one of the OTIS kits. Available in a small pouch, butt stock concealment & even a version to fit inside the AR pistol grip.

I personaly am not a fan of the otis gear, it did not seam to work right for me.
But I am a huge fan of bore snake. Rods a good item to have and so are the little cotton swabs. Thay make one for the bore that is like the bore brush. A good cleaning brush is a must have, and so is a good cloth to wipe it down with.

This combined with a brush and pick set, lube of your choice, and you're good to go.

Get a military style cleaning kit from Brownells, a bore snake, some Slip 725 cleaner and some rags and q tips and you will be good to go.

bore snake, patches, cleaning rod, tooth brush, chamber brush, canned air.

start with a Mil-spec cleaning kit then add to it.

Otis m4 m16 kit, then add a chamber/lug brush and a bore snake for quick clean outs.
