New: Breakthrough Clean Technologies Carbon Removal Tool

Cleaning your firearms seems to be approached in two ways. It’s either seen as a relaxing time or one to be avoided at all costs. Whether you believe in cleaning your gun with every use or only break out the tools and lubes when it becomes unavoidable, you do need to have the right things for the job at hand. With this in mind, Breakthrough Clean Technologies created the Modern Sporting Rifle Carbon Removal Tool. If you have an AR-15 platform rifle or pistol, this particular tool is meant for you.

Breakthrough Clean Technologies describes the tool on its website: “[Our] Carbon Removal Tool easily removes Carbon build-up from hard-to-reach areas on your firearm. With its integrated handle and double ended blade tools, removing stubborn carbon has never been easier. To use, push forward on the lever on the back side of the handle, grab and pull the tool blade end out until it clicks.  To retract, push the round button down, and push the tool blade in until flush with the handle.”

Carbon build-up on AR-platform rifles and pistols is unavoidable, and it can lead to feeding and cycling malfunctions. The last thing you want to happen to your gun, whether it’s a duty rifle, target gun, or hunting set up, is for it to fail you when you need it most. It’s up to you if you work at removing carbon at low or high round counts, but no matter what, you’re going to find yourself attempting to scrape residue off your components. Breakthrough Clean Technologies Modern Sporting Rifle Carbon Removal Tool was designed for ease of use, to make the cleaning process simpler and more straightforward.

The Breakthrough Technologies Modern Sporting Rifle Carbon Removal Tool has a number of benefits to recommend its use, including:

  • It simplifies scraping carbon buildup from hard-to-reach components such as the bolt carrier group and bolt and firing pin.
  • Proper cleaning with the Carbon Removal Tool minimizes fouling-related malfunctions.
  • The ergonomically-designed handle offers a firm, no-slip grip to facilitate the removal of tough carbon build-up.
  • The tool is double-ended with blades that retract into the handle for storage and safety.
  • It has a compact design, so it doesn’t take up much storage space.
  • It is portable and easy to carry in a range bag.

Failing to maintain your AR-platform rifle or pistol properly can do more than create fouling-related failures, it can shorten the life of your components. Breakthrough Clean Technologies doesn’t think the cleaning process has to be frustrating and drawn-out, though, which is why they offer not only the Modern Sporting Rifle Carbon Removal Tool but also bore brushes, solvents, and lubricants.

MSRP is $18.95.
