    Mr. Baldy

    There are two that I know of, one is by RIG products, the other by Birchwood-Casey. Both are found at my gun shop in Memphis, and I think Brownells and Midway carries them. They work good for bores, but will remove blueing. I am told they work well on the exterior surfaces of stainless steel. I have all blue guns and use these in the bore and sometimes in the chambers. Have for several years now. They really pull gunk out of the barrel. Even after cleaning with Hoppe's they get a lot of carbon out that's left behind.

    P.S. These are sold in plactic envelopes much like the silicone cloths. They are usually placed with tese cloths and look very similar in appearence.

    Thanks Bob

    :-D I'll be looking them up later this evening. A fellow told about some paste stuff that you can get there too. I got to find the note where I wrote it down. The stuff he was talking about was at midway also.

    Thanks Again Bob..

    Found One..

    Hey Bob I found one kind of patch at Brownells. It was the Birchwood-Casey. What do you think of JB Paste & Kano Kroil?? I am like you, I am kind of set in my ways but I though what the heck I would try some things a little different. That's how I got to useing Blue Wonder. Which buy the way does a fair job of bluing a gun. I don't know how long it will last but I just did a J-frame S&W for a guy who forgot it was under the front seat of his truck for three years. Turned what was a $50. gun back into about a $150-$200 gun. For now anyway. :-D

    Mr. Baldy,

    I've never used either of the two products you mentioned.

    Several years ago a friend of min tried using JB paste on cast bullets to lap the bore of a new revolver. This was done by using an un-lubed cast bullet and applying the JB paste by hand, actually by finger. These were loaded and fired almost immediately lest the compound contaminate the powder. I think the formula was to fire twelve of these bullets, wipe the bore clean, then fire twelve more until thirty-six bullets had been fired. They may have finished up with some jacketed bullets. Then, after a good cleaning, the bore was said to be mirror bright.

    I never tried this myself, but this was reported by my friend, Tommy Russell in the Ruger Collectors Ass'n. publication. Tommy was at that time orchestrating the T.S.A.B. Ruger Bisley, a customized Bisley. Tommy had done some work on slicking up the actions and had sent the guns to Hamilton Bowen for finishing. Grips were by Roy Fishpaw. The result was a very handsome and accurate package.

    I never cared for the Bisley but gave Tommy a .45 Super Blackhawk for similar treatment. I did not go with the lapped bore, though.

    I make my own, 1 part synthetic motor oil, 1 part transmission fluid, 1 part Marvel oil, 1 part mineral spirits. I use this to clean and lube. I had the motor oil and tranny fluid on hand purchased the Marvel oil and mineral spirits.
    It has worked very well for revolver, pistol, rifle and shotgun so far.

    That's why I asked..

    Thanks Bob for the info; on the paste and oil. After reading up on the stuff I am thinking I got some stuff out the garge called semi-crome. I could use that and I got brillo pads under the sink and motor oil too. I'll quit. I am going to stick with Hoppe's #9 & gun oil. They have worked for ever plus I don't mind the little extra work involed to get them clean.

    Ed's Red

    Dwarren: Sounds like you are useing a mix of Ed's Red. Or fairly close to it depending how you mix it. I know a guy who made a gallon about a year ago and he's still using it. He shoots all the time to. I think he said he only had about $10.00 in the whole mix. His guns look as good as anybodys and they work great. Must be something to it. I sure can't say anything bad about it.
