The German Army Gun Cleaning Wick is a unique take on the traditional gun cleaning patch. Recognizing that traditional gun cleaning patches have trouble with the lands and groves of the barrel, the German army designed these cleaning wicks. With the cleaning wicks, you will be able to get a more thorough cleaning of the rifling in your firearm barrel, which will help maintain accuracy and longevity of your firearm barrel.

These unique firearm cleaning aids are much large than expected. Very different from what most of us are used to, and very useful.
The main issue is figuring out how many strands to use for different calibers
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.
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.
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.
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.
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....
