Clean Guns Make Happy Shooters
So Clean ‘Em Up And Smile!
During significant slices of my life in some “interesting places,” my biggest challenge in cleaning guns was simply having the supplies to clean ’em! In one foreign unit I worked with, the only “solvent” available was diesel fuel, and in another, nobody wore underwear because all such garments were cut up and used for cleaning rags and patches. Now my problem (a great one to have) is which system will I use on THIS gun? Which goops and sauces?
With one Glock, cleaned, lubed and preserved with FrogLube, I’m kinda repeating Brian Hoffner’s experiment: How long will it run without any further care? And I’m getting the same result: Still runnin’ slick and smooth. One carbine, a SIG 556 Patrol, has known only Mil-Comm cleaners, lubes and protectants, and it obviously loves ’em. On another I use only Sentry Solutions products, and it shrugs off dust, grit and purposeful abuse. On two bolt guns I use Hoppe’s BoreSnakes and their Venom cleaner and lube, with great results—and the list goes on. Your choices are dazzling, so let’s look at some winners:
If traditional rods, jags, and brushes represent “conventional” cleaning gear, J. Dewey has been producing the most unconventionally superior examples of them since 1975. Precise sizing and machining to the closest dimensions have made their tools the choice of benchrest shooters and other accuracy fanatics, like our own Big Cheese Editor Jeff John. He praises the sheer strength and wear resistance of Dewey components and the year-to-year consistency of Dewey’s wide array of products. And now they’re even making field-cleaning kits for us caveman-types, like their AR-15 and pistol kits. Most highly recommended are Dewey’s coated non-marring rods, and their new line of “Copper Eliminator” jags, brushes and adaptors.
