Any suggestions for a good cleaning kit for .177 and maybe .22 too.

I use cleaning pellet, pellgunoil and a garden bamboo stick...

Also have the garden trimmer plastic line and clothes pad, but looks not as easy use as the stick....

I just use 200lb FF bowfishing string to run patch's through. Use it because I have lots of it around the house. Don't really like running rods down barrels if I can get away without it. All done I fire a cleaning pellet through also. CHEERS!

I do like my boresnakes because I am lazy but a solid rod with the appropriate brushes and patches are probably the best.

I use the Patchworm cleaning kits. They’re super portable, can be had in a variety of calibers for a very low price. Will never damage you gun’s barrel. They work very well in my experience. First saw the kits on Airgun exploration and advancement on YouTube.

You can get .177 cleaning rods at gun stores.

I just picked up one at Cabelas for like 14$. I got a Umaerax pull thru kit. But sometimes you just cannot get a pull thru one, thru. And have to use a rod.

I use the Umarex .177 & .22 Cal Cleaning & Maintenance Kit that I purchased off of Amazon over the summer at $18 and change. I even use it on my powderburners.
