TekMat is the creator of original printed cleaning and maintenance mat. Our 17" TekMats are large enough to handle a fully disassembled handgun with room to spare for tools and accessories. The 1/8" padding on these mats not only provides a premium feel and high level of quality but it offers extra protection from any rough handling or drops while working on your firearm. The ultra soft, oil and water-resistant surface helps protect your firearm from scratches while the diagrams and illustrations help with cleaning, disassembly and are just plain fun to look at. Features: PROTECT YOUR GUN AND YOUR WORK AREA - The soft thermoplastic fiber surface ensures your gun doesn't get scratched while the extra thick, 1/8" vulcanized rubber will protect your work surface and prevent the mat from sliding. This mat will also keep harmful chemicals, oil and dirt from penetrating down to your desk, bench or work area where you normally clean and work on your 1911. OVERSIZED DESIGN - This 1911 gun cleaning mat measures 11" x 17" and is 1/8" thick. The oversized design gives you plenty of room to disassemble your handgun and to clean it without having to move parts all over. The thick 1/8" vulcanized rubber backing ensures the cleaning mat will protect your firearm and work surface. QUALITY GUN CLEANING MAT - This 1911 gun cleaning mat by TekMat is made to exacting standards. This begins with the water-resistant, scratch proof, fade and oil resistant dye-sublimation printing. This heat transferred printing impregnates the ink into the fibers for a lifetime of durability. TekMat does not silkscreen their designs like a lot of other inferior gun cleaning mat manufacturers. EASY TO USE - This 1911 gun cleaning mat comes with an overview of the history of the 1911 as well as a simple to follow parts diagram of the parts that make up your 1911. The 1911 cleaning mat rolls up for easy storage along with your other cleaning supplies and accessories.
