Tired of paying for oil that dries up gunky, smells bad, and doesn't really afford any long-term corrosion protection. Also needs to be fluid at llllooowww temperatures. Last week here it was -22* F and I tried a couple of commercial preparations and they moved like cold honey. So I am going to make my own.
Fluid at low temps
Actually will clean the bore (not for copper removal though)
Won't rot my brain, liver, kidneys, ect.
Will lubricate and coat the metal for corrosion protection
The overall purpose and direction will be for the outdoorsman/woman who needs to clean the firearm after being in the field but who does not want to spend lots of time doing so. Quick, convenient, and effective. Then I have to sell it.
I have already been through the testing stages for quite a few of my recipes, and have hit on what I think will be a good compound. Two solutions are cooling outside on my steps right now. It is only +6* F. I wish it were much colder so I could see how they look once chilled. I think I will toss the containers into my freezer overnight and see how they look in the morning.
