    Trying Gunslick Foaming Bore Cleaner

    Hi All,

    I've read some fabulous, too-good-to-be-true statements about Gunslick Foaming Bore Cleaner.

    One of these was that after one uses a conventional cleaner like Hoppe's #9, you can fill the bore with the foam and it'll take gunk out of what you thought was a clean barrel.

    I figure the Mosin-Nagant M44 carbine I bought about a month ago is the perfect candidate for a test. I cleaned it a few days ago after shooting with LOTS of Hoppe's #9, followed by Outter's oil. It's not been shot since, and before I owned it I think it was likely last cleaned somewhere in the USSR in the 1940s.

    It's soaking for 1/2 hour right now. After it's done I'm going to run dry patches through it. If I get green or brown, I'll treat it again. If I get clean, I'll follow up with a shot of G96 down the barrel.

    I'll report back after I've cleaned it all the way.

    I never tried it, very interested on how well it works.

    Update:

    The foam got a bunch more gunk out, both copper and fouling, so I'm running it through again.

    There is no smell on my hands, and none in the room.

    And, unbelievably, the bore is starting to SHINE. That was unexpected.

    I have time for one more run before I have to go back to college.

    I'll report back.

    By the way, this stuff is NON-TOXIC and NON-SKIN-IRRITANT. VERY LITTLE SMELL.

    Probably a very good thing to have around if you have kids in the house!

    This stuff is really surprising me.

    This is what I got when I swabbed the bore after soaking for 30 minutes the second time:


    This is one of the copper/powder soaked patches. Look at all that green. Remember, Hoppe's #9 couldn't get anymore of this stuff out.

    I'm even more impressed...


    Here's the bore as it is now. Notice the shine coming into it? I had a feeling it was there; it just needed some encouragement! Until now, it was all black and I was only able to photograph it with a light source on the other end. This was taken with the bolt out and the only light source was what reflected off the linoleum floor - not much. It's cloudy out and one of the overhead fluorescent tube banks has blown.

    I think I'll be happy with this stuff. It's more than worth the $8 I paid for it. I do wonder how it will work on removing salts. I'm thinking well; if not, the G96 will take care of them.

    I'm pushing time, but I have a third treatment in. I'm going to push it out and then load the bore up again, this time letting it soak for the four hours I'm in school.

    Me too!

    I use this stuff to care for range rentals all the time. So easy and efficient to use. It will clean the most fouled and dirty filth-crusted rental gun with little work on my part, and that's good. I swear by it now for every kind of cleaning I do. Black powder, corrosive ammo, lead, copper FMJ....

    Superhouse,

    On average, how long does a small can last you? I'm trying to clean the whole bore up and I'm almost there. Had to sidetrack to use some G96 as I was showing rust on the patches, but I'm back to it, 5th application since 2:00 or so.

    20" barrel, .308 caliber. Any guesses?

    Thanks,

    Josh <><
