I was a bit restless this morning, so I decided to clean a few guns. I got out my 1903A3, M1 Carbine, and Mrs. Hammers Rem 1100. The '03A3 and carbine were not that bad, but the 1100 was terrible. I used my Gunzilla on all of them, and it worked great. It ate up the powder residue and carbon deposits. The Copperzilla made the rifle bores shine.
I got to do my 308, and Marlin 22.

What cleaning tools do yall use? What kind of cleaning kits, what brands?

I dont really stick to just one brand. I have my bronze brushes and patch holders. I have a couple bore snakes. As far as cleaning chemicals I use gunzilla copperzilla hopes #9 copper out by Klenz and some foaming bore scruber by birchwood casey. I fallow it all up with either hopes benchrest or Remoil

I use Hoppes 9 solvent and Rem Oil. Hmmm, I wasn't aware of Rem Oil having a teflon additive and that it could affect the bore.

I was using remoil after Hoppe's #9 on the bore and after cleaning that out, I'd run a light patch of remoil down it. What should I do? Used to do the 3M oil a long time ago.

I use a whole array of stuff and have been picking up cleaning stuff for years. I like bronze brushes mostly, but have some nylon (i think) that do good as well. Boresnakes work for quick cleaning.

Hey guys I just know what happened to me. My Rem 700 '06 started grouping like a shotgun, literally all over the target. I almost got rid of this gun, then my sporting goods store guy asked me how I cleaned it and when I mentioned using a wet patch of Remoil down the bore, he cringed. Told me to get the Hoppes 9 and clean it real good, dry patch it, shoot 10-15 rounds and then shoot for a group, it was amazing. Since I have cleaned with sweet 7.62 once or twice to get the copper out, gun shoots better than ever, still not a tack driver, but the deer can't really tell the difference.

Kroil is a good "after cleaning" product...Think the benchrest shooters actually clean their guns with it....No problems for me...

Gotta get some of this Gunzilla stuff
just don't get it on your finish.

Non chlorinated brake cleaner for cleaning and SumGy magic for lube (used to be BreakFree but switched when something better came along)

Hoppe's #9 in the bore.

Formerly used 3-N-1 machine oil on all moving parts, and a light coating of 3-N-1 on the exterior when finished.

Now it's Sum Gy Lube on all moving parts, and a final exterior wipe down with a silicone-impregnated cloth.

Shooter's Choice for bore cleaning, if I'm low on that
Hoppe's #9 still does a good job and its not pricey.
Sweet's for copper fouling removal or Hoppe's Copper
Solvent if I'm out of Sweet's or my nose just can't take
another sniff of Sweets.:lol5:
