Grab one of our Pro .223/5.56 Cleaning Kits and keep your rifling sharp and shiny. Need to perform some gunsmithing work? Grab the Wheeler AR Armorers Essentials Kit. It includes an AR vise block, gunsmithing wrench with attachments, torque bar for setting barrel nuts and screws, and just about every other fixture required for breaking down and assembling a black rifle.
Why a Gun Cleaning Kit?
Modern rifles like the AR-15 sport advanced barrel coatings and treatments (phosphate, chrome lining, nitride, and other protective, hardened finishes) that generally do a great job of protecting your AR's parts and barrel from wear over time. However, the AR platform utilizes a direct-impingement gas system. The drawback to this light n' fast semiautomatic cycling system is that it creates a lot of carbon fouling: Debris that clogs up bolt carriers, makes the rifling in your barrel nasty, and generally coats your upper and lower receivers in corrosive chemicals.
Grabbing the proper cleaning and disassembly tools for your AR-15 is the only way to ensure your custom build is kept in a good, serviceable condition - not pitted or ruined prematurely from all those days at the range or in the field.
Need Help with Assembly?
Although we've got plenty of great written guides and video tutorials for assembling an AR-15 and breaking down its parts, it pays to have a good workstation that can double as a proper firearm schematic. We've got some excellent AR-15 Build Mats that not only protect your AR and its individual parts while you work (by providing a soft, rubberized surface) they also show detailed schematics and diagrams of how each component on your AR is disassembled.
