    Gunzilla ~ Myth or Miracle

    Frankly, I’ve been out touch for a quite a while following a rather serious Line of Duty injury. In fact, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to shoot again but I have recovered to a state that allows me to function quite well with my handgun(s). Ok, now that ya the know, here is my question. This GUNZILLA stuff sounds a lot like the old military standby BREAKFREE but I’m not sure. Any feedback is appreciated.

    UPDATE: Now that my thread was kindly redirected to the correct sub-forum, I see that my question may well have been addressed. However, any recent opinions are still welcomed.

    I use it and set all my other cleaning supplies aside. Gunzilla is the best IMHO.

    I just bought the large spray bottle, it seems like effective stuff, but I have not used it long enough to rate it.
    I use a variety of solutions, but everyone here raves about Gunzilla, so I decided to give it a try.
    If you read up about it...it sounds great...we'll see.

    After reading numerous posts here raving about it and no negatives, I ordered a bottle.
    I am happy so far but didn't use it long enough to be positive.

    It's not BreakFree. It does, without question, works better than anything else I have used to clean my guns. Your results may be different but it appears that everyone here that has tried it has the same results....

    I give Gunzilla a two thumbs-up! I was a disbeliever until I tried a sample size bottle. Now I'm hooked and have a bunch of useless firearm cleaning concoctions sitting in my cabinet collecting dust. The Gunzilla gets used every time.

    My favorites have been Sharpshooter Wipe-Out and Sweets. Has anyone tried cleaning with Gunzilla and then let either of these set in the bore (for a couple of hours) to see if any additional gunk came out?

    No but vise/versa, I have cleaned guns thoroughly with my old products then with Gunzilla and have gotten lots more gunk out. When I first bought Gunzilla I re cleaned all my guns with it and got more out. I will not use anything else unless something new comes out to beat it.

    Hands down the best stuff out there. I have given all my other stuff away and this is all I use now.

    What were you previously using? Reason I ask, I gave up on #9 (donning flame suit) and CLP over a decade ago.

    I use to use everything else.

    I would go to the Shot show in Vegas and Pick up a bag of samples and use them until the next show.

    I have used Hoppes and I liked Mpro 7.

    I keep the small samples around for my CCW classes, But I only use Gunzilla, as does every Officer in this area.

    Gunzilla Rust Prevention

    Been using EEZOX for years and have been happy with it. Read a lot about Gunzilla and decided to try it. Ordered some - prior to using, I decided to test it for rust prevention. Took 3 new 16 penny nails. Submerged one in Eezox, one in Gunzilla and did nothing to the third. Took nails out of the Eezox and Gunzilla and layed on work bench to dry till the next day. Next day, I drove the nails into a piece of 2 X 4 about 1" deep. I put the 2X 4 outside on 2 June 2011. On 4 June 2011, I sprayed down with a salt water solution. On 5 June, the untreated nail had a lot of rust on it and the Gunzilla nail was starting to rust. By the 21st of June, the untreated nail and the Gunzilla nail were both very badly rusted - could not tell the difference between them. The Eezox nail had no rust. Today is 4 July 2011 and the Eezox nail still has no sign of rust - not even on the head of the nail which I used the hammer on to drive it into the 2 X 4. It has rained several times per week for nearly the whole time that the nails have been outside.

    Gunzilla sounded good, but guess I will stay with the Eezox.
