Once upon a time, there was a day when I used to joke that the criminal who broke into my house never had to worry about infection from a dirty gun, but lead poisoning was a serious concern. That was a time when after the gun went bang!, it immediately took a trip to the cleaning bench. Monthly, the guns came out and were cleaned whether they needed it or not.
There is nothing wrong with being a clean freak—until you have multiple gun safes jammed with more firearms than they were designed for. Cleaning would be a fulltime affair. Besides, just because a box of ammo went through a pistol or your favorite rifle, does not mean it has to be completely stripped, scrubbed, and cleaned. However, that does not mean it is okay to neglect it either.
Hoppe’s has the solution with the release of its new Hoppe’s Gun Medic Cleaner & Lube. Hoppe’s Gun Medic Cleaner & Lube was designed for those times when a deep clean just isn’t in the cards. Hoppe’s Gun Medic Cleaner & Lube is a fast-acting, all-in-one product that will clean and lubricate a firearm in one application to quickly get the gun back in action. It’s like having a first aid kit for dirty firearms, eliminating malfunctions caused by buildup of dirt and grime.
When seconds count, Gun Medic products will clean and lubricate a dirty firearm quickly and effortlessly to provide unrivaled performance. The revolutionary formula combines a bio-based lubricant developed for jet turbines with an amazing cleaning agent that scrubs away powder residue and then evaporates in 60 seconds, leaving only the thin coat of the high-performance lube. The lubricant tolerance is an astounding -65°F to 500°F. This cleaner and lubricant combination is loaded into a new high-pressure bottle to blast out dirt and crud. It comes in 4-ounce and 10-ounce sizes.
Filling out the line, Hoppe’s also packages these formulas as standalone offerings. Gun Medic Cleaner is the same quick fix, bio-based cleaner in the new high-pressure 10-ounce can. Gun Medic Lube comes in an easy-application 2-ounce bottle. Both products are environmentally friendly bio-based formulas.
