MPro7 Gun Cleaning Guide
The MPro7 Cleaning MethodAlways make sure the firearm is unloaded before cleaning. Spray MPro7 Gun Cleaner on the entire firearm and brush with a nylon brush to remove exterior carbon deposits. You can also soak the entire firearm in the solution. (see Ultrasonic or Dip Applications). Wipe down with a dry cloth (use cotton swabs for those hard to reach places) and re-oil to protect the finish. Most major gun manufacturers have approved MPro7 for use on their finishes.
To clean the bore, we recommend the "MPro7 Process" which is
Heating the solution - Heat speeds up the cleaning action of MPro7 Gun Cleaner. Remove the sprayer and warm the liquid in the microwave (do not heat to a scalding temperature). Then follow the "MPro7 Process".
Lead Fouling Removal - Lead fouling is the bane of most pistol shooters, particularly re-loaders. Sometimes you can scrub for hours and scrape with a dental pick and it will still not come out of the bore. Many shooters have literally spent hours trying to remove lead. Now you will have the secrets of secrets to tell your friends and become the hero of the day. If you or your friends have cleaned properly using MPro7 Cleaners and still have lead fouling .
Lead Removal - Compensators - Shooters using cast or hard cast lead bullets have a difficult time removing the lead fouling that builds up in multi-ported compensators. Using MPro7 as directed enables these deposits to be completely removed with toothpicks and cotton swabs. MPro7 Gun Cleaner will keep the compensator clean and operating at 100% efficiency longer with less effort. Subsequent lead removal becomes even easier with regular use.
Copper Fouling Removal - At bullet velocities under 3,000 fps (approximately), copper will come out the same as lead fouling. However, at higher velocities there is a metal to metal adhesion or bonding between the copper and the bore steel. What should you do then?
First, perform the "MPro7 Process" (once or twice to begin). Then use an ammonia based copper solvent as directed to corrode the copper out of the bore. MPro7 will remove the top layer of carbon from the bore allowing the ammonia solvent to work in half the time or less. All ammonia-based cleaners can cause corrosion and pitting. Plus, ammonia in any form is toxic, so use adequate ventilation and safety precautions. If not completely removed, the ammonia can cause crystals to form, which attract water and can expand into the rifling causing microscopic stress fractures and corrosion. After the copper removal, follow the "MPro7 Process" 2 or 3 more times. Used correctly, MPro7 will completely remove all traces of the ammonia so it will not pit the bore. In addition, the bore conditioning capabilities of MPro7 will help reduce future fouling.
