    I still use Hoppe's #9 for bore cleaning and my wife uses it for perfume when she really wants to get me all worked up :-)

    Hoppe's #9 and Break Free pretty much takes care of everything for me. Except for some specialty stuff I use for cleaning black powder guns and greasing nipples and choke tubes.

    That's exactly what I said. Exactly what I said. In the beginning.
    I actually just did my wife's 10/22 after 500+ rounds (took it out last week for a couple hundred MORE rounds) with Gunzilla. Yeah...I broke it down completely (I do that every now and then with the 10/22's), and 22lr is nasty....real nasty. Made quick work tonight.

    Gunzilla handles all those & I'll bet after you clean your gun with Hoppe's if you cleaned it with Gunzilla you will find more carbon on your patches. Gunzilla flat cleans better than Hoppes #9.

    I guess you can clean your firearm using Gunzilla, then sprinkle some Hoppe#9 on it just to have the smell around and be old school ...

    We lived in base housing at Lejeune (Tarawa Terrace); there was no place to clean the guns but the kitchen table. The place was so small, you could smell it everywhere as soon as you cracked the bottle
    Gunzilla is safe and 100% organic. There are NO hazardous material in Gunzilla.

    Here is the ingredients to hoppes#9 according to it's MSDS

    Ingredients
    No. CAS Number Ingredient Percentage Remarks
    1 64-17-5 ETHYL ALCOHOL 0 - 35 % default range
    2 8008-20-6 KEROSENE 0 - 35 % default range
    3 00-00-0 TRADE SECRET INGREDIENT(S) 0 - 25 % default range
    4 00-00-0 ORGANIC ESTER 0 - 10 % default range
    5 7664-41-7 AMMONIA, AQUEOUS 0 - 10 % default range
    6 00-00-0 NON-HAZARDOUS INGREDIENTS chemical identities withheld as a trade secret:no % given by mfg

    I spray a little gunscrubber down the bore followed by a little remoil. Cleans it up nicely.

    I'm curious about the Gunzilla product. For those who have tried both, how does it compare to Weaponshield?

    Weapon Shield

    Thanks.

    I have never used Weaponshield but looking at the flyer

    Weaponshiled uses synthetic hydrocarbons, many hydrocarbons are used as fuels.

    Many cleaners use hydroncarbons, for example hoppes #9 contains kerosene. It appear that the Hydrocarbons in Weaponshield are Non-Toxic & contains no volatiles.

    Gunzilla is produced from 100% plant materials and is also non toxic.

    Gunzilla breaks the carbon bond removing carbon easily from the steel.

    Gunzilla leaves a very slick surface even when dry.

    Here are some tests conducted compairing Gunzilla and CLP.

    They tested Gunzilla against CLP, because CLP is what the military uses and Gunzilla was developed for military use.

    I use Eezox. It's a cleaner and a lubricant. It works well with all off my handguns.
