A full cleaning kit is something for your pack.
I have a USGI kit with better jags, solvent and patches.
The Otis kit is nice, but no rigid cleaning rod.

However, the one thing that you should always have with our rifle is a disassembled USGI rod.

Failures to extract are disaster.

You can feed my rifle one-by-one, but one FTE will wreck your whole day.

good idea.....so does everyone carry a disassembled rod with them on vest or chest rig? I wantto know what everyone has on them at all times......the cleaning kit goes in the pack.....but what will you have on you? thanks guys

I keep a complete GI cleaning kit in the buttstock of my rifles, never use them for cleaning.... they are just there 'in case of emergency'.

Of course, I don't have an M4gery. (yet)

Otis universal. It'll clean any handgun or rifle, is about the size of a McDonald's hamburger, and is tough as hell. I wouldn't trade mine for any other cleaning kit.

+1

As well as a bore snake, extra jags and brush's and a small bottle of CLP. They are in one of my utility pouch's on my TT MAV with other gear I hope I never have to use.

If two is one, and one is none, three must be for fun.
