Copper fouling.....
« on: May 14, 2018, 01:10:31 pm »
OMG, no matter how much I clean the barrels on my sub-guns I cannot get the copper fouling from the land & grooves!  Brush & brush, still there!  M-PRO 7, M-PRO 7 copper cleaner, Hoppes, etc.  Does anything work or do I just live with it?

    Wipe Out works extremely well for me:

    Also, I've used CLR, which also does a great job on carbon.

    In the shop I like to use Shooters Choice or Sweets as they both contain ammonia which will strip out copper. Use it very carefully as it will strip off finish on wooden stocks.

    I rotate between a heavy ammonia based cleaner and the the next cleaning JB's. I swear by JB's!!

    I used Sweets on my HK53 and my M4. It worked well
