Cleaning a gun can be a tedious and daunting task, but if you need it to perform optimally, you have to take the time to give it a proper clean. Thankfully, there are tools available that make gun cleaning easy, and one of those tools is a cleaning jag.
Cleaning jags are mainly used for cleaning the inside of a gun’s barrel, and they are usually attached to a cleaning rod. The jag itself is used with patches to remove dirt, grime, and carbon buildup.
Jags are available in different sizes for different calibers. They are also made of different materials. In this article, we have discussed two main types of jags, brass and nickel-plated cleaning jags highlighting the pros and cons of each.
