PMA Action Cleaning Tool Kit

The PMA Action Cleaning Tool is our answer to getting rid of the yuck and grit we all get in the lug recess of our rifle actions after cleaning. Other action cleaning tools mostly just push that debris around. We wanted to make a tool that would actually get rid of the crud. After a lot of testing by several shooters with various sizes of die cut foam, patches, felts and cotton rolls by several shooters with various bolt action types (BAT 2 and 3 Lug, Kelblys, Halls, Remingtons, Winchesters and Savages) we determined that the best way to clean the lug recess area of a bolt action rifle is largely up for individual interpretation. What we all agreed on however was that the foam disc is far superior to felts and cotton rolls, what we disagreed on to a certain extent was what diameter foam and whether or not a patch placed on top of the foam added to the cleaning performance. In the end we decided to include two different sizes of foam discs.

 We received a lot of help from a good friend and customer with our handle. Rather than using a generic plastic screwdriver handle, the handle on our action cleaning tools are CNC machined aluminum with a very grippy silicone tubing sleeve captured within the contour of the aluminum. The result is a tool handle that feels soft and comfortable and does not slip in your hand.


We offer our lug recess action cleaning tool by itself with five foam cleaning discs and also in a kit that includes a chamber cleaning handle and cotton swab. Cleaning discs are also available separately in your choice of 1” and 1.25” diameter in a five pack.

    Works pretty well to do a difficult job. cleaning out bolt recesses in actions is a hard one to verify, but these seem to be getting it done.

    Made of great material. This tool is very refined and works great. PMA is the only company I trust for cleaning tools on my 2500$ actions and barrels.

    Works great on my Defiance Rem 700 type action. I like the patch over the larger foam for this.

    Great design, very sturdy. Just wish the sponges were made of cotton.

    really did not know what I was missing until I got this tool. The gunk in the action can really read havoc and cause pressure issues if you clean at the range. Great tool.

    Works very well. I like that the assembly is non-spinning, allows a thorough cleaning!

    Action Cleaning

    This did the trick, my rifle sits in a MDT TAC 21 Chassis the adds distance from the action to the receiver making it had to get to the chamber. I was able to wipe it all out.

    A superb lug cleaning tool

    This is really high quality tool. The large foam discs with a 3 in flannel patch work well for my completion and high power rifles.
