I have a friend that won't shut up about G96 Gun Treatment. A cop told him it is the cat's meow.

I have had nothing but excellent luck with Hoppe's #9, brake cleaner for a rinse, and RemOil for lubrication.

I would consider using this G96 if I could spray it on my Taurus 44 mag stainless steel revolver and all the burnt cr@p on the breech and cylinder face would come off. I have to use Flitz and a stiff brush for that.

Any rate I was just wanting people's opinions.

Thanks.

It smells nice, but its not a terrific lube, its not a terrific cleaner, but does a nice job as a protectant before storage. I use a solvent to clean, a gun oil to oil (not rem oil, I like militec or fp10) and a silicon rag before storage.

Anytime you try to use just one product for several very different tasks, you are bound to comprimise on a few. (which is why my father hates crescent wrenches and vise grips :))

All of this is true. G96 is old tech but I keep a can around. I use it for quick cleans and it seems to work okay for that. I generally use CLP for lube, Hoppe's #9 (best on lead in my opinion), GI Bore Cleaner ( I have a good supply), and CLP as a protectorant.
