THE IMAGE ABOVE IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT
Just got a Rock River Arms NM A4 and want to know if it's really necessary to use a bore guide. I want to use a Otis cleaning kit because I've heard alot of good things about it. This is my first AR-15 and I just wanna take care of it. If anyone uses them what is a good brand? Thanks in advance !

welcome!

for me, no on the otis. some do ok with it. i never bought into it because of all the stuck patches i have seen. my gunsmith had two rifles in at once from different guys that jammed patches in the bore. i would get a dewy coated rod and chamber guide. that's what i use and works great.
this does not contain a catchy phrase or a famous quote.

Welcome to the site.

There is a section labeled "maintanance and cleaning" which has a wealth of information on the subject.

Personally, I use a bore guide, from Brownells, a one piece Dewey delrin cleaning rod.

I keep an Otis in my range kit for cleaning if needed.

Personally I run a Brownells bore guide.

Didn't get into the whole Otis kits. I just use a standard cleaning rod, works fine for me.

Uh, this IS the "Maintanance and Cleaning" section. It wouldn't hurt to do a search here first, but unless you are quite familiar with this search engine, it could be a bit challenging to find what you're looking for. Lucas makes excellent bore guides. I think I'm going to get a JP aluminum bore guide though.
