    Same as Hops and the like .. Basicly oil .. So dont breath it in too much or smoke near it etc or get it too hot etc ... Unless you need zee fire

    Sounds like it is mainly oil and other stuff .. So if your parnoid just use it in a well vented place and wear chemical proof gloves ..

    Most gun cleaners have MSDS sheets ..Some may make you not want to use them anymore .. About the only reason why I use what I use as it is relativity non toxic

    Been using it for years and no, it's not the same as Hoppe's - works much, much better. I gave up on trying to get the residue off the front of the cylinder of my revolver w/o endless scrubbing - just decided to live with it. G96 took it off with virtually no scrubbing.

    I meant in terms of health and smell issue same as Hopps not in terms of what it does or does not do ..

    It's been around for years. It works as well as any other CLP I've used.

    Proper ventilation, eye protection and gloves are still recommended.

    I don't let my guns get especially cruddy but it works fine for "normal" cleaning.
