Best brush for cleaning rifle.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello all, I'm a father of a private who is currently in Bastion and waiting to go to his FOB. He's 1RA. He messaged me requesting a medium paintbrush to be sent to him to aid cleaning his gun. Any pointers to what I should send. Sorry it's a bit bland for a first post.
     
  2. I used a half inch (not half-inched!), bristle- not nylon- brush from B&Q or the like. Probably a Harris, get a half decent one so the bristles don't come out.

  7. Shaving brushes are good too.
     
  8. Shouldn't he be Gunners Dad?
     
  9. Nah, I thought 1RA is 1st Royal Anglian, an infantry battalion. Though if it is a gunners unit I'll take that back.
     
  10. I got 10 half inch Harris brushes on eBay for £8. I sent them all out for him and his mates. Also sent him a Boresnake Viper which was recommended too.
