    Hi eveyone,

    Has any one tried this stuff? Good, bad , so so? How about on the finish of a 340 m&p or some of the other light weight S&W snubs?

    Thanks

    It's high tech soap. Very, very high tech. Check their web site for details on how the military cleans copters and big machine guns, etc. Airplanes too.

    Yes it works, although it's not magic and it does take a little work with a stiff brush. The best part is that it doesn't stink at all. If you use it be sure and put some lotion on your hands afterward because it will strip every bit of oil from your skin.

    Looks like they changed their site after agreeing to a distribution deal with Bushnell. There is a flyer/poster available for download and a FAQ list that says it's safe for everything.

    And oil any metal the cleaner touches because there won't be ANY oil on it.

    Anyway, here's an old quote:

    "Chosen and approved by Boeing, H&K, and many others for guns small and large. Approved for use on the Apache attack helicopters by Boeing! "

    I like it. No odor and it cleans thoroughly. If you have a barrel that coppers badly, you will need something get that out after the MP7 has removed the powder fouling.

    Good stuff, but, like Jim says, if you have bad copper fouling you will need something else. Bore Techs Eliminator attacks copper better than anything short of the ammonia based copper solvents. It will absolutely eat bronze brushes. Use nylon ones with it.

    I've recently switched to using M-Pro 7 and I'm very pleased with it.
    Low toxicity, odor free and best of all it does the job very well.

    After you use it a few times on the same gun subsequent cleanings seem to go quicker and easier.

    BTW, I also use Ballistol for some cleaning applications. It is non-toxic but it certainly is not odorless. It smells like something brewed up in a cauldron by a benign witch--alarming but not exactly unpleasant. :)

    I love it, been using it for a couple of years. Works well on the old blued Model 19 all the way to the 340PD, and all the blued and stainless guns in between.. Smells like nothing, and I don't worry about the kids ingesting it by mistake.

    Thanks for the input everyone. :)
    I became interested in M-Pro 7 because its nontoxic and odorless. I have often felt that I was slowly poisoning myself using other solvents. Even when used out side I always get a few lung full of fumes.

    Its nice to have a choice in what I can use.

    Thanks again,

    It is sure great stuff to use inside the house with out issues. I love the stuff but I keep butch's and Montana around for cleaning the copper and other junk out occasionally.

    Slip 2000 gun cleaner is very similar. They both work well. I think the M-Pro7 works a bit better. That is what I bought when I ran out of the Slip 2000 & M-Pro7 I originally bought to try. M-Pro7 is a bit more expensive.

    Slip 2000's Carbon Killer is great stuff for soaking SS cylinders to get clean.

    It's the same as Hoppes Elite. I will never use #9 again.

    The Elite/ M-Pro works as well, maybe better, and has no harsh chemicals or odors.

    actually it backward. Hoppes "rebag" it.
    +1 for Pro7

    Pluses: won't give you cancer breathing it; won't dissolve S&W clearcoat finishes; won't hurt steel, aluminum or rubber parts or blued finishes; very effective on almost all kinds of fouling, but...

    Minuses: won't do squat on copper fouling; is kind of pricey.

    I use it and would give it high marks.

    OK so I ran out to the gun store and got a 4oz bottle of the M-pro 7 gun cleaner. :)

    Worked just a little on the front of the cylinder on my 629 where the carbon builds up alot and is real hard to get off. In a very short time quite a bit of it came off. COOL! :D

    JohnBT you wern't kidding about needing lotion after using it though. :)

    I really like it, I'm sold.

    I tried the slip2000 that came with my sharpertek ultrasonic gun cleaner and it really works.[​IMG]
