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.
