Firearm Maintenance Mats
Tipton Gun Cleaning Supplies has two new additions to its maintenance mat product line: the S&W M&P Maintenance Mat and the GLOCK Model Maintenance Mat.

The mats are designed to lie perfectly flat on a workbench while cleaning or disassembling firearms. Excess oils and solvents are quickly absorbed into the mat, ensuring a clean and dry surface. The maintenance mats easily roll up for easy transport. Keeping the mats clean is easy: simply hand wash to make them look new again.
