Abstract:

Specification rifle bore cleaners from the qualified products list of MIL-C-327b were examined for cleaning efficiency and removal of copper. They were found to be deficient against current soil deposits. A cleaner with copper defouling capability and improved weapon cleaning was developed, laboratory tested, and has undergone limited field testing. It is recommended for consideration as a comparison formula in MIL-C-372b to enable procurement of more effective cleaners, and as a basis for further efforts to develop a rifle bore cleaner with optimum efficiency.
