We have featured Swab-It’s before on the site back in November 2016 when brought you the Swab-It’s reusable 9mm bore swabs. So we were already very aware of the company when they approached us at SHOT Show 2017 and offered us a small sample of their latest yet to be released product the AR-15 Chamber Swab. I was excited when the site was approached about doing a test and evaluation cycle on the new swab-its especially since I absolutely hate to clean my guns and anything to help make that process suck less would be a welcomed change.

Swab Its vs Traditional Swab

The Swab-It’s AR-15 Star Chamber Swab is designed to be a smaller, lighter and easier to use alternative to the above shown traditional chamber swab. One of the major difference with between the two is that the traditional swab requires the user have a section of cleaning rod to secure the swab to. The Swab-It’s style chamber swab is mounted to a  8 1/2″ long polymer rod with a paddle end for easy use. The rod extends entire length of the 2′ foam swab and so far in our test and evaluation process is performing as well as every other Swab-It’s product we have tried. At first glance the idea of using a washable foam swab for the application of cleaners and oils seems odd, but it quickly changed my thinking process months ago.
