I am Darrel Wix, Owner and Master Gunsmith at Spring Branch Armory LLC. Located in 
Marion VA. We received and have tested out the Super Nano Detergent Bore Cleaner (Nano bore Cleaner). I have used many different products on the market. I have to say, me and my workers are impressed! Below I will highlight each project as we done them.

1st Test


We picked out some really dirty and neglected firearms to use for this review. We wanted to give a true test to this product. We also have one which is a good kept rifle. We wanted to see if any improvements are achieved by using, Nano Bore cleaner to other regular used cleaners on the market.

Testing Super Nano Detergent Bore Cleaner on Rifle


As you can see after two sweeps of the brush it is already pulling away the Nitro residue from the metal surfaces with very minimal effort. We brushed the chamber 20 times total still only using a Nylon brush and patches to apply the Nano Bore Cleaner.

After 20 sweeps through receiver with minimal effort. The results are very good. The caked in nitro residue and gun oil are pulled away from the metal. This gun will require a full break down to clean it entirely. Our focus is on the path of the area we used to clean with the bore brush and cleaner.

As you can see it cleanly removed the residue of the path of the brush. Again this was with minimal effort. This cleaner done very well removing everything in the brushes path! We could not get photos of the bore. Due to the small diameter our camera would not focus on it to detail a clear picture.

2nd Test

Here is our 2nd test This is the bore of a very rough .50 caliber CVA Staghorn this gun was brought to use loaded and had been for many years. We removed the load and now we will perform see how clean this we can get this bore using Recommended instruction on the Nano Bore Cleaner.

We used patches to liberally soak the inside. Then we let cleaner set in the bore for 15 mins before we used a nylon brush in the bore. We brushed it 25 times before using 3 more patches with cleaner again. After a short soak clean patches were run through till they came out clean.

This was way better than we expected. Most everyone knows neglected muzzleloaders will have deep pitting like this one. But the removal of residue is impressive. It exceeded our expectations!


3rd Test 

We decided to give test on a gun that was already cleaned recently with Hoppe’s Nitro solvent and lubricated after cleaning with Rem Oil. To see if this cleaner would do any better on this 1954 Mosin Nagant M44.

The Nano Bore Cleaner we used on our firearms has been a wonderful product to use. It has shown us that it is a great product to use of firearms. Most cleaners on the market have aggressive smell. This does cause problems for people storing firearms in a household, or in shops like ours. Using Nano Bore Cleaner has been a big change from those traditional solvents and has Great cleaning power as well. We use Hopps solvents regularly as well as Rem Oil and I can say with full confidence i am impressed. On a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being a poor experience and 10 being the best we have ever used, we have to score it a 10 due to all the perks to using this product. This is a product we would all recommend to others for use in home or for business. This product has all thumbs up here.
