The German Army Gun Cleaning Wick is a unique take on the traditional gun cleaning patch.

The main issue is figuring out how many strands to use for different calibers Review by ben (Posted on 4/29/2017)

Saw these for the first time and thought I had to try em. The Germans seem to always get it right. They do penetrate the grooves of a barrel quite well. If you have multiple calibers you have to take a little time to determine how many strands to use. But they work. And you can use them to clean other hard to reach places too. My brother in law was here when they delivered them. He was impressed, he left with a couple packs. Review by Dan R (Posted on 2/9/2017)

Can't be the price so I ordered a bunch of them - lifetime supply I'm sure. Tried them out on an old Remington 8 and they seemed to work nice. Just keep adding strands until its a snug fit. Can't tell if they clean better than patches but they do seem to and they are a lot cheaper. Add some to your next order and I don't think you'll be disappointed...if they're not for you, give them to a buddy. Review by Dave (Posted on 2/6/2017)

I picked up 20 bundles of these wicks and I'm very happy with the quality of the product. I will be cleaning my AK47 tomorrow and will use them for that job. Review by Duane (Posted on 1/13/2017)

I loaded up on these because I've heard the description is true - they do a better job than patches. I've never used them but I just purchased a bulk load that will last me forever. I shoot a few times a year and I should be good on cleaning barrels until I'm dead. Review by Fox (Posted on 1/13/2017)
Great stocking stuffers

I have used these for years and they really do a good job of cleaning, I like them better than a bore patch and you can't beat the price.... Review by April (Posted on 12/8/2016)
