Is all of this stuff necessary? Or is a bore snake and some oil good enough?

Depends how many firearms you have and the range of calibers.

You can absolutely get by without everything in this kit. However kits with 20% of what this one comes with can retail for $50+

The best bang for your buck would be to get everything you need, and make a case for it all yourself. Or dump it all in a zip lock bag.

I have this exact same kit. I have no complaints with it at all!

I paid ~$70 for it. For $44 it's a no brainer.

Amazon has better info, they include more photos and a better description. 73% of people that reviewed 5/5 that paid at least $69.29 (Lowest price from CCC on Aug 08, 2019). This is a great find OP, thank you

Aluminum rod, I'd stay away from it unless you already have a brass one on hand or a cheap replacement. Only go for brass or carbon. Aluminum oxidizes and forms a very abrasive layer with time that will scratch your barrel

It's nice to have an all-in-one kit, that works on handguns, rifles, shotguns...etc. When I go to the range I always take my cleaning kit with me just in case. Having a comprehensive kit in a convenient box is easier that lugging around 2 or 3 cleaning kits. I'm not a fan of bore snakes myself, I find the rods easier to use. To each their own.

I wouldn't use just oil on the barrel though, you need some kind of solvent like Hoppes #9 to remove the carbon residue from the barrel. CLP and other all in one products are decent, but don't clean out the carbon as much as I like them to. Hence why I always use a solvent for the barrel, then finish it off with a light coat of oil for corrosion protection.,

Is there a certain cleaning solvent and lube/gun oil you'd recommend?

I bought one last year and I recently called their CS to replace it. Very poor quality brushes and the "brass" is practically falling apart. Suggest staying away and buying a surplus kit with real brass brushes and rods.

Hoppes #9 bore cleaner. A 1 pint bottle will last you a decade.
