I like a 1 peace rod like this https://www.amazon.c...aps,200&sr=8-23  and a longer one for Rifle 

I have a few bore snakes but just not a fan of them

Never found a kit I liked, and I generally make up my own. Bore snakes are good for quick cleanings, or to loosen up fouling before a conventional barrel cleaning. I use them quite a bit, but not as a primary means of keeping bore/barrel clean. Some people are fine with running one through a time or two and pronouncing it "clean." It's a matter of preference and anal retentiveness.

Dewey rods, jags, and brushes.

I've been using a kit I got at a gunshow years ago. It's very similar to this

Gunmaster 35 Piece Universal Gun Cleaning Kit Wood Case on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Gunmaster-Piece-Universal-Cleaning-Wood/dp/B000BU54JG/ref=sr_1_129?dchild=1&qid=1596283276&s=sports-and-fitness&sr=1-129

Has everything I need, comes with a nice wooden case and is reasonably priced.  Downside is the plastic jags are delicate and tend to break.  I've  tried the Otis cleaning system (brush on a snake) for pistols and hated it.

Years ago , I bought a universal cleaning kit at Walmart and it has served me well through the years.  I've had to buy a few extra brushes for different caliber handguns and that's it.
