Customer Ratings & Reviews
Tapco AR Cleaning Stars Good but overpriced,
These are the best cleaning swab for the AR chamber/locking lugs that I have found so far. You need to use a suitable solvent cleaner, and an AR stepped chamber brush first to scrub the area and loosen the deposits. Then use these stars to mop the area clean. At about 50 cents each, they are way overpriced. I'm guessing they are manufactured with a cutting die that punches them out of a pad of felt, so probably cost a fraction of a penny each to make. That's why I only gave them 4 stars.
ar-15 chamber cleaning
These Cleaning Stars work well but are expensive for what they are. They can be used more than once, and I see no reason why they can't be cleaned insolvent a few times before discarded. For the purpose they are used for, they really won't wear out in the short term. Cleaning and reusing make them a better bargain.
AR15 Cleaning Stars
These felt stars are for cleaning the chamber and have nothing to do with the bore. They work best after the chamber and locking lugs have been blasted with a little solvent or brake cleaner, then brushed with an AR15-specific chamber brush. While relatively expensive for what they are, they're cheaper than replacing a chamber mop every 4 or 5 cleanings and do a better job of cleaning between the locking lugs than a conventional patch.
My USMC company is finishing up our rifle range this week, and I’ve used this product to clean out the hard to reach spots in my chamber. They’ve worked awesome!! Have recommended to everyone in my platoon and will to continue recommending them.

These little critters are Great for getting the gunk out of the chamber lugs. Stab 'em with a bore brush, dip 'em in your favorite cleaning juice, work 'em around in the lug area of the chamber and , Voila, the crud is gone!! Highly recommended!
