The Professional Rifle Cleaning System by Otis Technology was recently named Outdoor Life magazine’s Editor’s Choice. Otis is honored to have received such prestige.
The review appeared in the November/December issue of Outdoor Life and focused on portable pull-through gun cleaning kits. The article was written by John B. Snow in which he tested and evaluated six pull-through gun cleaning kits. The kits were evaluated on several criteria including 1) ability to clean the bore 2) ability to remove barrel obstructions 3) ease of deploying components/carrying 4) ability to service a firearm in multiple ways 5) ability to service multiple calibers 6) durability and 7) value.
Of the six portable cleaning systems evaluated, two were manufactured by Otis – one under the Otis brand and one marketed under the Cabela’s brand. The Editor’s Choice was bestowed upon the Professional Rifle Cleaning System (item # 308-5). This cleaning system can clean and maintain .30-.45 caliber rifles as well as clean optics.
Otis Technology developed the Breech-to-Muzzle gun cleaning concept back in 1985, after owner Doreen Garrett tripped in the mud while hunting. She went back to camp and developed a cleaning system that fit in a shoe polish tin – then called The Whole Kit And Caboodle®. The main innovation that accompanied this portable and compact kit was the flexible pull-through cable, dubbed the Memory-Flex® cable. That fateful day hunting was indeed a stumble into success for Doreen, and from that point on, she and Otis Technology led the market in lightweight and portable gun cleaning systems.
