Default What is your favorite $20 Accessory?

What is your all-time favorite gun related item that cost you $20 or less, Actual item, not memberships, ammo or something like a friend gave you a gun for $1. Something any of us can go pick up. Something that goes on the gun, a tool, or bag or whatever. Add a link or picture if possible. My best money spent was on a Hogue Grip sleeve for my Shield, Love it. $10

I used to buy dozens of magazines for each gun (I still do but I used to too). This chingadera lets you load as fast as you can shoot(ish).

The same company also makes a thingy called the Lightnin' Grip Loader, it comes with interchangeable magazine holders for most every .22LR autoloader out there.

Snake. Not the best for deep cleaning, but outstanding for a quick clean.

Cheap gunsafe/storage for car travel.

Bag. Yeah, not many great ones for that price, but close.

Bag-o-rags.

Sling (as above).

No doubt its the original Butler Creek Lula Universal Pistol Loader. Now they're about $30 but still a must own item.

Slip on recoil pad for the Mosins and Mausers.
My son called it my "wussy pad", before I made him put 100 rnds of heavy ball through his M44. Now he asks politely to borrow it.

One of these is helpful in AR and bolt action cleaning. I used it nearly weekly.

https://www.amazon.com/Tipton-777888...s=tipton+guide

I use this weekly also, it seems. Always in the range bag. Saved more trips than I should mention.

This plastic thing I found on amazon a while back called a Fast Pull. Turns a standard AR charging handle into an ambi one. Works great for me. Makes it really easy to pull the CH with a scope hanging over it. Have not seen it on amazon since. I'd buy another for a back-up if I ever see it again.

This is a real friend when shooting in the desert, especially run and gun shooting.

Saves a lot of time. Finding brass in the dust is not easy and can be time consuming.

Reloaders rejoice. Brass stays cleaner, too.

Next purchase, for sure.
