FIREClean is a
revolutionary way to keep your gun running cleaner, longer, and
smoother. If you shoot an AR-15, you will go through 60,000 rounds of
ammunition before you use up these 2 bottles. Whether
you're firing a musket, revolver, or belt-fed crew-served weapon,
FIREClean will enhance your firearms' reliability, and greatly reduce
cleaning time and effort.
- Conditions metal to prevent buildup of carbon and other fouling
- Most fouling simply wipes off
- Cleans deeply and safely into gun metals
- Safe for use inside bores.....no damage to polymers
- Dramatically reduces cleaning time and effort - generally by half or more
- Enhances reliability and decreases parts breakage
- Odorless and non-toxic
is designed to hold as an oil to the highest possible temperatures, and
provide the best possible lubricity across the applicable temperature
spectrum. In addition to the “wet” lubrication provided by the oil
itself, FIREClean™ also conditions the metal deeply to provide inherent
slipperiness or lubricity. Even in the absence of visible oil, metal
parts still slide freely due to the remarkable “boundary lubrication”
properties of FIREClean. A very light, thin coat of oil on any parts
that are subject to mechanical movement, or fouling from carbon or other
sources is all that is required.
FIREClean™ is a new
and different approach to operating your firearm. While traditionally
the focus has been on “proper lubrication” and “keeping the gun wet”,
experience has taught us that friction is rarely the problem on normal
metal surfaces in the operation of guns. While this may sound like
sacrilege to many, consider this- when was the last time that manually
cycling a clean dry firearm resulted in locking the gun up? The REAL
ENEMY of successful firearms operation is heat and fouling- particularly
carbon fouling. Carbon is the unavoidable byproduct of powder
combustion in the firing process. Carbon adheres very, very strongly to
metal surfaces. It is very abrasive, hence the “gritty” sounds typically
encountered with dirty or fouled firearms. Cleaning carbon with
traditional methods requires harsh and hazardous chemicals- toxicity to
humans, eco-toxicity, flammability, hazardous and potentially explosive
vapors are some of the typical dangers.
cleaning materials must be treated as hazardous waste before disposal.
This leads to long term health concerns as well as risk and expense.
Other methods of carbon removal involve scraping, grinding, and other
mechanical methods. In addition to the time and difficulty of using
these methods in a field environment, this can often lead to undesired
wear on mechanical surfaces or on the finish of the firearm. The other
problem that FIREClean™ solves exceptionally well islubricant
“burnoff” or evaporation due to heat generated in the firing process.
Frankly, most firearms lubricant can’t stand the heat! When you are
required to constantly re-lube your firearms, that is a telling sign
that either your oil has evaporated or has “cooked off”. Evaporation is
caused by low temperature thresholds and the volatility of the
substances used. If the oil has a strong odor or smell at normal
temperature that indicates that the oil is undergoing evaporation. If
the oil is “smoking” in operation that tells you that thermal breakdown
of the oil is happening. Either one of these cases will lead to the loss
of lubrication, and typically the dried up or burned off oil creates
gums and varnishes that are difficult to remove and lead to jamming.
Directions for Use & Application
Step One - Strip Firearm
and field strip firearm according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Wipe parts with a rag or quality paper towel. To degrease the gun,
rubbing alcohol works. Shake product bottle and remove (and retain) red
stopper. Apply FIREClean™ oil to fouled
parts. It extracts fouling like you won’t believe. Allow to soak in
overnight if possible. Wipe fouling off. Fouling may continue to "weep"
out of the metal for a period of days, depending on the porosity of the
metal and amount of fouling. Wipe the fouling as it comes out of the
metal. You may see machining marks in upper receivers, bolts, etc that
have been previously camouflaged by carbon fouling.
Step Two - Apply & Wipe
Once clean, apply a thin, even coat of FIREClean™
oil over all internal surfaces subject to carbon or friction. Wipe
excess off. A cheap 1” paint brush works wonders for large (or hard to
access) areas, as do QTips for small crevices.
Step Three - Condition
On parts you wish to fully condition, apply multiple thin layers of FIREClean™ until it is no longer absorbed into metal. The metal should have a "sheen" or "glisten".
Step Four - Assemble & Shoot
Shoot gun, reapply FIREClean™ oil as desired in cleaning / lubrication / conditioning process.
FOR BEST RESULTS WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THE USE OF OTHER OILS, CLEANERS, OR LUBRICANTS ONCE APPLIED.
DO NOT APPLY FIRECLEAN OR OTHER OILS IN FIRING PIN CHANNELS OF SEMI-AUTOMATIC PISTOLS.
Safe for use in bores- run patches through until they are clean and dry.
