    Because when you use it instead of soap and water you don't have to apply any additional oil to prevent rust. No water, no rust.
    If you cannot stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    If you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself..."Baa."

    Thanks. I was only looking at the cleaning side and wasn't thinking of rust prevention.

    That's what they say. I've been using it lately. I must admit the first time I used it I wasn't really impressed. I still haven't gotten the black off of my SS Ruger SP101, but I haven't tried the pencil eraser yet. I let it soak for hours.

    I did notice the next time I went shooting, though, the guns didn't seem as dirty and they did come clean with just the gunzilla easier (except for the SP101 still). I still put a little gun grease on the rails and a couple select spots sparingly. Overall, I think it's a good product. Let some things soak a little. Use it consistently and I think you will be pleased.

    The good thing about Gunzilla besides cleaning your weapons, it's safe, no chemicals to harm you.

    I ordered some myself but haven't used it yet. That won't last long though. Went to the range with my sister so I have 4 guns to clean...

    I am fairly certain that Gunzilla uses solvents. They may just be different solvents than other products that have no smell.

    I find Gunzilla and Blue Wonder are about equally effective. I experimented cleaning some guns with Blue Wonder and then recleaning them with Gunzilla. I also did the opposite. Both times more grime was removed.
    Gunzilla may have a slight edge in that a lubricating film remains when you're done.
    Blue Wonder on the other hand has such a strong chemical action, that it strips the metal bare. The instructions strongly encourage you to lubricate after cleaning to prevent rust.

    NO. Gunzilla is the only thing you need to clean lube AND protect your gun. It has been an excellent cleaner from day one. All my clean guns were alot dirtier than I thought possible. Gunzilla got grime off of all my guns that I had thought were clean. I was reluctant to use it as a lube. After awhile I tried it adding a few drops on the slide & wear spots after cleaning checking the gun after each mag. No signs of wear and they seemed to run smoother. Finally I have gotten to running all my guns dry with only the film left from cleaning with Gunzilla. Even my AR which I always always ran wet with lube, I now run it dry. I have since learned that if you add lube after cleaning with Gunzilla the Gunzilla will break down the lube as it cuts grease and carbon. As I understand it they work against each other. TapRackBang probably has better insight and info about that. All I know is my guns have zero wear seem to run smoother and are easier to clean. I like it so much I buy it by the gallon, because I tend to stock pile supplies and ammo. Like ammo this is one product I do not want to run out of.

    Been researching this, and making the switch from CLP and Miltech1!

    Ordered (2) bottles of Gunzilla to try in the XD .45, Ak-47, BlackPowder, .357, Ruger 10/22, Keltec P3AT, Mossy 500, ............

    Stop acting like we're fightin' for "freedom". We are ALREADY....free.

    New user with the Gunzilla, ordered the big bottle (get the big bottle!) and opened the box and cleaned my pt145 and my Ruger p89 right away. Never had my guns cleaner, unbelievable to be honest.

    I was more impressed with subsequent cleanings than the initial one...it does leave a good protective film that seems to keep the guns from getting as dirty and makes them clean easier and better over time.

    Even Russian Wolf 9mm is no match for Gunzilla!
    Ive been using it for over a year now and Im just overwhelmed at
    how much better it is compared to other products.
