    I have decided it is time for a major "spring cleaning" of my whole collection. Quite a few shotguns. When I usually clean a gun it takes a while. I like to get pretty detailed and use tooth brushes and different solvents and the like.
    But, now I would like to do a fast but reasonably thorough job to the bunch.
    Would anyone care to suggest tools or products or techniques to clean a bunch of guns in a hurry?
    Oh, one other thing, what product do you like to finish with and put on your stored guns to keep them safe?
    Regards, Jake

    Does anyone use a drill with a wire brush to clean bores?
    Any thoughts about Eezox as a cleaner preservative?

    I use a TICO/Outers. Others use the Bore Snake. The Tico Tool is my mainstay after each shoot and readily gets powder residue out with a few brisk strokes - offers an oiler attachment.

    For plastic and tougher fouling, I use a "Tornado" brush attachment on a shorter chamber length handle.

    Gibbs is excellent!

    jakearoo, I use the drill attachment sold by Shotgun Sports. It has a bore guide and a large brush and works very well indeed.
