C.E. , "Ed" Harris recipe for bore cleaner:
Supposedly, the acetone can be left out, if your not cleaning shotguns or other weapons that have plastic residues, but the cleaner won't be as fast acting.
- Dexron II ATF (or IIe or III)
- K1 kerosene (for space heaters)
- Aliphatic (odorless)mineral spirits or Stoddards solvent or Varsol
Supposedly the Dexron + kerosene mix (50/50) is highly effective "gun oil"
Supposedly one of the most effective penetrating oils available (beat all the commercial preparations)
Who has experience with this and how well does it work? Hoppes No. 9 doesn't smell as good as it used to....
