What are Gun Mats?
This is a very essential equipment for people who own multiple guns, they protect your gun’s surface from scratches and marks, therefore, maintains your gun properly. Cleaning gun mats also protects your work area from same scratches and marks. Gun mats are extremely diverse in terms of size and functions as some of the gun mats also acts as a carrying case for your guns while some has pockets to hold your bullets, extra magazines, oil, cleaning solvents etc. but there are many more gun mats with extra features which would help you in one way or another. I was introduced to gun mats by a close friend who has extensive knowledge on guns and its allied accessories, he gifted me a Real Avid AVGLOCKSM (gun mat) on my 23rd birthday. I use it to this day and have never faced any problem with it. As I mentioned before, the market is filled with gun mats with diverse features, therefore, I have listed top 2 gun mats with their details and features so that you can purchase one which fits best for you.

- Real Avid AVGLOCKSM
I was lucky enough to be gifted this masterpiece, as a beginner in this industry this gun mat works well as this was designed for novices and beginners. This gun cleaning mat is user-friendly as well as highly functional which is respected by its numerous customers and I being one of them. It does an effective job to protect surfaces (of desk etc.) by the use of its non-slip back which avoids slipping of mat. As an owner of a Glock this is perfect as the gun mat was designed especially for Glocks as its specs are 19 inches by 16 inches in size which is sufficient for Glock pistols, and as a cherry on top, the gun mat comes with special double padding which helps the gun mat to not absorb solutions like lubes or oils or other cleaning agents. Another great feature of this gun mat is that it is shock resistant which immune your pistol from damage of a sudden shock or force etc.
- Useful Thingy AR-15 Gun Cleaning Mat
This one of the most common gun mats I found on “top gun mats list” and after researching about this mat I can clearly see why. The gun mat is made specifically for AR15 rifles as the gun mat has a printed image of every component of AR15 labeled with its function which can be useful for the handler. The gun mat also does a great job of being not slippery and also doesn’t absorb the oils and lubes if spilled on the mat due to the material made of neoprene rubber. This mat can also be washed with soap and water (note that don’t wash it with a washing machine as it causes damage to the gun mat). The mat is 36 inches by 12 inches which is more than enough for all components of AR15 rifles to be laid out for oiling, lubing and cleaning.
