Is Hoppe’s Elite Gun Cleaner Any Good?

Is Hoppe’s Elite Gun Cleaner any good?

I’ve tested many gun cleaners in the past 2 or 3 years and Hoppe’s Elite Gun Cleaner is one of the best. I burned 3 charges of smokeless powder on a flat steel bar and then soaked it with Hoppe’s Elite. I waited 10 minutes and then wiped it clean. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

So the short answer is YES…it’s very good and non-toxic too.

The best way to use Hoppe’s Elite Gun Cleaner is to apply a very generous amount or in other words SOAK the area to be cleaned and wait 10 minutes. Then run a few wet patches through the barrel and then a few dry patches. Done

Here is one of my gun cleaner tests featuring Hoppes Elite Gun Cleaner.

Is M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner Safe for Polymer?

I had a few readers ask if M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner was safe for polymer pistols.

The short answer is YES.

I have used M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner on my Glocks for many years. It’s an excellent cleaner and will not damage or harm the polymer Glock frame. But be careful when using it on unprotected wood or painted wood surfaces. It may remove the paint or finish. Always test M-Pro 7 on a questionable surface before cleaning the entire weapon.

I’ve tested M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner many times and have to say it’s one of the best gun cleaners available. It’s also non-toxic and has no odor.
