Gun Cleaning & Lubricant Product Reviews

Field tests and reviews of all kinds of gun cleaning solvents, tools, lubricants, and accessories, by Russ Chastain.

Review of Fluid Film Corrosion Preventer and Lubricant for Hunters and Gun Care
Fluid Film is a lanolin-based product used to prevent corrosion and to lubricate. I heard good things about it and decided to give it a try on some guns. Read on to learn the results.

M-Pro 7 Tactical 9mm Pistol Cleaning Kit Review
This kit certainly isn't overcomplicated and it contains some things that I really like, but for the price it might seem fairly spartan to some. Read the review to learn more.

Montana X-Treme Gun Oil and Bore Solvent Review
Montana X-Treme makes this stuff in the good ol' USA, but the packaging didn't really do it for me. Check out the review for more info.

Review of Tipton Rapid Deluxe Bore Guide Kit
Review of Tipton's Rapid Deluxe Bore Guide Kit. This kit claims to be universal, and even provides some stuff for guns that can't be cleaned from the muzzle. It also offers a fancy way to insert patches and apply solvents, but does it really work? Let's find out.

Steelgard Firearm Protector CLP Review
Steelgard is billed as an all-in-one gun care product, acting as a cleaning solvent, lubricant, and anti-corrosion protectant. Can one product really do all of those jobs? Read on...

Rusty's Rags Sheepskin Silicone Gun Cleaning Cloth
Review of Rusty's Rags sheepskin silicone gun cleaning cloth. Despite the name, these are not rags at all - they're patches of sheepskin impregnated with silicone, meant for wiping down your gun to prevent rust. The hairs can get into nooks and crannies where a cloth rag doesn't reach.

Stinger Shotgun Bore Cleaner
Review of Stinger shotgun bore cleaner. This is a shotgun shell containing patches and CLP. You load it and drop the hammer, which pops the primer and shoots a string out the end of your gun's barrel...

Answer Products Gun Cleaning Kit
This combination of solvents and methodology makes for effective gun cleaning.

This cleaner, lube & protectant does as well as any; see what my testing shows.

Dewey Rods & Bore Guide
These gun cleaning products, along with others from J. Dewey Mfg, are among the best I've ever used.

The Otis Elite Weapons Cleaning System Gun Cleaning Kit Review
Otis Technology offers this kit, called the Elite 1000, for cleaning every gun there is. They claim their gun cleaning system is advanced and wonderful. Does it work? Read the review to find out.

Kleen-Bore ChamberMate
This shotgun chamber & choke cleaner is a great tool, which should be seen to be appreciated.

Militec-1 is Good Stuff
This lube & protectant is the most impressive product I've seen in months. And, a few years after writing this review, Militec-1 is still my gun lubricant/protectant of choice.

Muscle Corp. Lubes
The results of a field test of some great high-tech lubricants.

ProTec GUNoil and BOREcleaner Pump Sprays
ProTec makes some interesting products, and these are just a couple of them. Oil and solvent in metal pump spray bottles.

ProTec GUNoil and GUNgrease Syringes
A couple more of ProTec's gun maintenance products - both oil and grease, in convenient precision applicators.

Gibbs Brand Lubricant
This spray lube was quite helpful in cleaning my shotgun's chamber, and in cleaning my black powder guns. I use it all the time around the house, too.

Tetra Gun Lubricants
Yet another test & review of a high-tech gun lubricant. The good, the bad, and the smelly.

Trewax Clear Paste Wax
This wax is said to be a good protectant for guns, and a release agent for bullet molds, too. I haven't tried it on my bullet molds, but it didn't impress me as a protectant.

Shooter's Choice Black Powder Cleaning Gel
This cleaner did a fine job on two of my black powder guns, and it beats the old hot water trick.
