We at Gunblast.com have the privilege of
testing some of the finest products in the firearms marketplace.
For the past nine years, Gunblast.com, the first and by
far the largest test magazine, online or print, has been
providing honest and informative tests and evaluation of
firearms and related products. Obviously, we test more guns than anything.
We are first and foremost a gun test site.
We gun-lovers like to talk about guns.
We at Gunblast.com love to test guns.
We own a lot of guns, and we shoot a lot of guns.
However, to keep a gun functioning properly, it must be
kept clean. And, to
keep a gun clean, you need quality gun cleaning products.
Among the best gun cleaning products on the market are
those of Shooters Choice.
It has been almost a year ago that we
received several boxes of Shooters Choice cleaning products.
Shooters Choice President Joe Ventimigloa and I discussed
at the NRA show last year about
reviewing on Gunblast.com the cleaning products of Shooters
cleaning products is a bit different than testing a gun. We can spend a few hours with a gun at times and have a
pretty good idea of its performance.
For cleaning products, more time is required to get to
know the product, use it several times, and utilize various
products by the same manufacturer to truly provide a quality
test and evaluation of their products.
So, with almost a year of experience with Shooters Choice
cleaning products, and actually many years beyond that with some
of their products, we can speak about them with some degree of
That said, I believe the quality, product
variety, application covered, and value of Shooters Choice
products is among the very best available in the industry.
I could use anyone’s cleaning products.
I choose to use Shooters Choice products.
I have been using some Shooters Choice
products for many years. I
have always liked their aerosol Quick Scrub and Shotgun and
Choke Tube Cleaner products, as well as their liquid MC#7 and
Firearms Bore Cleaner. I
have used these products for many years, and have always liked
introduced me to some new products that I have used over the
past 9 months or so, and I must say that I am impressed.
First, Shooters Choice has a great variety of
products. They have
been making gun cleaning products for a long time, and they
focus on being the best and in utilizing the latest technology.
They therefore offer a wide variety of gun cleaning
products for most any cleaning challenge.
Secondly, Shooters Choice offers a good value
to their customers. Their
prices are competitive with any other quality cleaning product
on the market. And,
a little goes a long way, making a bottle of Shooters Choice
product last a good while.
Finally, Shooters Choice products are
available through retailers, and online.
For those of us that prefer to shop online, this is
important. I’m not a shopper. I prefer to go to the website of
what I want, order it, and have the “Big Brown Truck of
Happiness” (as Jeff refers to UPS) bring it directly to the

and Choke Tube Cleaner is one of the finest aerosol
shotgun cleaning products around. I have used it for many years and it works.
Shotgun bores are messy and require a lot of cleaning to
keep them in top condition.
A quick spray and rub in the action and in the barrel
helps clean up the debris that can inhibit the performance of
Scrub III is an improvement over their old Quick Scrub
product. I have
used Quick Scrub a long time.
This product allows for cleaning of actions without
disassembly, and the product evaporates without residue.
The aerosol is convenient and easy to use.
I have kept a can of Quick Scrub in my gun kit for years,
and glad that they are continuing the development of this fine
product. It is also
one of the best values on the market.
I personally think MC
#7 Bore Cleaner and Conditioner is one of the best
cleaning products on the market. I have used it for years, and it is a one-step concentrated
solvent that effectively removes powder, lead, wad fouling, and
about any other residue that might build up in your action or
bore. It is a solvent-based product, but will not harm any plastic,
composite, or metal surface.
It comes in several handy sizes, and in gallons. It is
proven over years of use and refinement.
If I had to use one all-round solvent, this would be the
While gun cleaning chemicals is their
mainstay, they make a good lubricant as well in FP-10.
It bonds well to metal surfaces and provides excellent
One of Shooters Choice’s new products is
Clean. As you could guess from the name, it is a
water-based cleaner. Honestly,
I had doubts about this product, but after using Aqua Clean for
months now, I must tell you that I am sold on this revolutionary
new cleaning product. This
water-based formula quickly dissolves oil, grease, and powder
fouling in actions, receivers and trigger assemblies, yet is
safe to use on all firearms surfaces. It is designed to work in
ultrasonic cleaning equipment and parts washers, and while
I’ll bet it would do a good job in that application, I did not
try the product in a parts washer.
Aqua Clean Firearms Action Cleaner/Degreaser
is environmentally friendly, non-flammable, non-hazardous,
non-corrosive and safe to use.
It is designed to not harm bluing, plastics, polymers,
camouflage, painted and wood finishes. Aqua Clean has no harsh
chemical smell, is biodegradable and water soluble for easy
clean up, and is V.O.C. compliant. It stores as a non-regulated
product and, like all Shooters Choice products, carries the
Shooters Choice unconditional satisfaction guarantee. For those to whom traditional solvent-based cleaners cause
problems due to the smell, you will find good cleaning abilities
without the solvent smell in Aqua Clean.
If your local gun dealer doesn’t carry
Shooters Choice products, tell him he should. Or, do like I do. Order
your products online. With
fast delivery, exceptional quality control, good customer
service, a website that provides you easy access to all Shooters
Choice products as well as training on gun cleanliness, and a
money-back guarantee, you cannot go wrong with Shooters Choice
You have spent hard-earned money for your
guns. Keep them
operating effectively with proper cleaning and lubrication. Shooters Choice products are an excellent investment in the
future success of your firearms.
