Gun cleaning kit

As is well known in 2/95th folklore my gun cleaning prowess is legendary,I never had this trouble with my SLR and Gimpy in the mob so it's obviously crap kit I've got..😀
So Santa says he'll get me a decent kit,so what's the best one out there,I won't touch anything by Derbyshire Arms so open to suggestion.  😁

Colonel Stewart says in 1808 you should only dry clean if you fire less than twenty rounds. I reckon that's you done for the year at about eighteen tubes. So you only need to brush through.  q5

Urine. Everybody knows they peed down the barrel.

Note for the new guys. When peeing down the barrel, always 'seat' the connection from tube to barrel with a sharpe tap to ensure a water tight fit. A mallet is included in your loading kit for this purpose. This is the origin of the re-enactorism known as tap loading. Its closely related to spit loading, a technique where your file partner bites off your ball and holds it in his mouth. We'll cover that one next week.
