Avoid a "kit". Get yourself a good one piece rod, some brushes and brass pointed jags.

+1 Tipton

However; the military has been using Otis technology for years now.

I second the Otis products. The last cleaning kit I will ever have to buy.

I don't own an Otis kit but I do own other kits. For pistols, I tend to use pistol cleaning kits. For shotguns, I use shotgun kits. For rifles, I have coated rods and different brushes and jags. I don't know if you'll ever find one kit that is the "last" one you'll buy though.

Midway has some very complete kits, they are excellent except they come with 3 PC. Rods, I just bought a kit and ordered a few 1 PC rods.

Thanks for all the helpfull responses. Looks like I'll get the Otis and then just add a few pieces for the more thorough cleanings. I like the compact size of the Otis for traveling to the hunting sites with me.
