Anybody have any recomendations on what is a necessity and what works best? I have been looking at the Bushmaster Master Armorers tool kit for ideas Thanks.

Dewy coated rods and bore guides for home. for field a bore snake.

chamber brush a nylon toothbrush and a brass one if you dont like carbon build up on the back face of the bolt.

Q-tips, 100% double nap cotton patches.

Quality gun oil/rust prevent ie Break Free clp, fp-10, g-96.

Bore solvent such as Hoppes No. 9 or better. ie shooter choice or butches bore shine.

Copper remover not really needed in a chorme lined but sweets 7.62 or shoters choice copper remover will work. the one listed before ie hoppes etc will also remove copper but it takes overnight where these do it in 7 minutes.

and dl the m-16 maunal hosted somewhere on this site or biggerhamer.

Gregory_K has hit the nail on the head. I can't think of anything else I would classify as a "necessity."

From here you start to get into the options like a cleaning link or bore guides or ....... The list can be endless especially if you start into the tools for doing more work than cleaning on your rifle.

I like dental tools for a completely anal cleaning job, which I'm doing right now... resulting in black stains on my keyboard as I type this

One of the best tools is the double ended toothbrush.
