AR15 Cleaning Kit / .30 Bore Brush?

Postby Werz » Sat Sep 02, 2017 12:15 pm

I like to keep a mil-spec AR15 cleaning kit with each of my AR15 platform carbines. However, that is a bit of a challenge with the .300 Blackout. It needs a .30 caliber bore brush. The problem is that the cleaning rod for the mil-spec kit has "buried" threads that a normal bore brush will not reach. There are plenty of .223/556 mil-spec bore brushes that will fit those cleaning rods, but it seems that all the .30 caliber brushes have the standard commercial threading. Right now, I either have to switch over to a standard cleaning kit to brush the bore or use a bore snake. Does anyone know who might make .30 bore brushes that fit that the mil-spec cleaning rod? Or maybe an adapter?

Use this brass adaptor on any military rod with #8/36 thread to change threads to standard American rifle/pistol #8/32 threads.


Brownells also has a rod kit that includes an adapter.

Thanks! I must have used the wrong search terms; they're more plentiful than I thought. I now have one on my ever-growing MidwayUSA wish list.
