Kroil - The magic sauce



  • f9Io4fz.jpg

    If you don't have Kroil among your firearm cleaning arsenal, you are really missing out on a powerful tool. For several years I've been using this stuff on everything from rifle bores to AR15 bolt carrier groups and it never ceases to amaze me what it can cut through.

    I haven't cleaned the brake on my 6.5CM barrel in over 700rnds. Obviously it was completely encrusted in carbon deposits. You'll notice the crown is completely caked.

    About half an hour later, using a razor blade to scrape a bit, a bronze brush, and some Q-tips soaked in Kroil.

  • Never thought about Kroil on carbon. I've got a can of it kicking around somewhere. Curious to see how it compares to my usual usage of CLR.



  • Never used it.

    I did notice there was starting to be some carbon on my brake the other day. Nowhere near that bad.

    Let me know the results of that comparison. Nothing I've used penetrates carbon and allows you to scrape/scrub/brush it off like Kroil. If there's something better, I'm all about it. :)



  • I keep three small bottles of liquid in my rifle case. Gun oil, copper solvent, and kroil. The stuff is great. Doesn't smell great though.



  • We used Kroil in the shop I work at for over 25 years. And I use on my weapons for as long as I can recall.



  • I'm a definite Kroil and Hoppes #9 fan.:smile:
