Being a Glock owner doesn’t just mean using your firearm for shooting. It also means taking proper care and maintenance so that it will last a long time.
But proper care and maintenance don’t just mean wiping your Glock with a towel. It means taking it apart and cleaning it with a special cleaning kit. This is where a high-quality cleaning kit should be considered.
To help you choose one, I’ve assembled a list of some of the best Glock cleaning kits you can purchase. Let’s take a look at them in the following section.
Best Glock Cleaning Kit (Ranked)
The Real Avid Glock 9mm cleaning kit is compatible with 9mm, .38, .380, and .357 caliber Glock handguns.
The kit comes with bore cleaning tools and handgun detailing tools.
The bore cleaning tools include two brushes (bronze and nylon bristles), a mop, a slotted tip, and a jag. No matter what solvent you use to clean the bore, you have both brush materials at your disposal.
The handgun detailing tools include two brushes with different bristles and picks with which you can easily clean dirty grooves in your gun. The picks are designed to fit any corner inside the gun for thorough cleaning.
All the cleaning tools are neatly packed inside a small, organized, easy-to-access case. The case operates easily, unfolding all of the tools conveniently in front of you.
All the tools are tightly placed inside the case, yet they are easy to take out and use without much effort. This is the best Glock cleaning kit to take with you on your travels.
OTIS was established in 1985 as a family-owned and operated company.
The kit includes a unique memory-flex cable and patches, able to squeeze into the bore of your Glock and clean it thoroughly. It is compatible with 9mm, .40, and .45 caliber Glocks.
Three bronze and three nylon brushes are included in the kit, along with an obstruction remover and a slotted tip for deep bore cleaning.
The FP-10 lubricant, which comes in a small bottle, acts as an excellent solvent, while the steel rod and square patches included in the kit do the rest of the dirt removal.
Something that sets this kit apart from others is the included 8-in-1 T-tool. This tool will help you quickly remove pins and make front-side adjustments. The specialized Glock magazine plate tool will help remove and replace springs and magazine plates.
The entire kit comes in a small and foldable zipper nylon bag, which measures 10 inches in height, 4 inches in width, and 2 inches in depth.
This Glock cleaning kit includes multiple rods for cleaning pistols, rifles, shotguns, and multiple brushes, mops, slotted patch loops, and jags.
The 14 bronze brushes and nine cotton mops are the central part of the kit. They come in different sizes and shapes, able to penetrate and clean any part of the weapon.
But brushes are most effective when combined with a proper solvent. That’s why the kit also comes with a cleaner and oil bottles.
The cleaner bottle contains Frank August Hoppe’s nine ingredients formula, considered the world’s most effective gun cleaner.
The kit also provides bronze, nylon, and steel brushes to scrub the leftover dirt and residue.
Unfortunately, this kit is not convenient for traveling. The parts and components are all encased inside a hard polymer case, which is too large to fit in a backpack. On the other hand, everything inside the case is tightly organized and accessible.
This Glock & Polymer 80 cleaning kit includes all the essentials you need to clean your Glock firearm, so if you don’t need a big kit with many parts, this would be an excellent choice.
The kit includes a long, one-piece aluminum cleaning rod, a bottle of Hoppe’s special number 9 bore cleaner, lubrication oil, cleaning rod accessories, and patches.
The jags included in the kit are plastic to prevent you from accidentally damaging your gun’s bore while cleaning it.
The kit is meant for cleaning 9mm, .38, and .357 caliber pistols.
Depending on your specific caliber, the kit may include a nylon brush to thoroughly clean your gun’s bore.
All the parts are assembled in disposable plastic packaging, which makes this kit unpractical for storage. But taking that aside, it truly is an affordable choice to keep your firearm clean.
