Slip2000 725 Gun Cleaner is a non-toxic water-based cleaner and degreaser. I have used it in the past on my Glocks and it worked really well but I never really new how well, so I decided to test it.
I use a simple test for gun cleaners. It’s composed of a metal plate or bar, smokeless powder and a gun cleaner. I burn several charges of gun powder on top of the metal plate and then apply a gun cleaner to see how well it removes the fouling and residue.
Let’s take a look at the gun cleaner test setup.
Here’s the typical gun cleaner test setup/equipment. The first thing I do is clean the test bed which is the aluminum plate/bar. Then I pour a 50 grain charge of H4831 smokeless powder on top and ignite it.
Hodgdon’s H4831 is a slow burning powder, so it’s pretty safe to experiment with.
Here’s the 1st powder charge. I’ll ignite this one and then do it all over again 2 more times. This provides a good amount of fouling that is pretty hard to remove easily.
I use a long grill type lighter to ignite the powder.
You can see how slow this powder burns. It takes about 3 seconds to burn.
Here’s the result of 3 charges of H4831. There’s a pile of carbon that is stuck to the metal test media. Let’s see how well Slip2000 725 gun cleaner removes this.
I’m applying the 725 gun cleaner to the fouling, spraying it on very heavily and then letting it sit for 10 minutes. This is the key to cleaning carbon fouling. You have to let it SOAK.
Here’s the fouling soaking. I’ll try wiping it clean after 10 minutes.
The fouling “pushed” to the left easily when I used the cleaning patch to wipe the area. The Slip2000 725 gun cleaner loosened the fouling, so it could be wiped off easily.
There you have it…nice and clean. Slip2000 725 gun cleaner is AWESOME. It’s also totally non-toxic and safe to use indoors. There is little to no odor and it’s clear. Great product!! If you want to try it out, here is a link….Slip2000 725 Gun Cleaner/Degreaser at Amazon.com
