If you’re like us, you keep a steady flow of lead and copper zipping through the barrels of your favorite guns but might not find time to keep them clean.
While it might seem tedious, regular maintenance is key to sustaining reliability and preserving your guns for long-term usage. Some guns such as .22LR semiautos are prone to malfunction due to excessive fouling, and it’s important to keep them clean and lubed during range sessions.
To support your gun care needs and maximize your time at the range, we’ve chosen the best gun cleaning products to make regular maintenance quick and easy.
- Hoppe’s original No. 9 formula is a staple of gun cleaning, and the No. 9 Synthetic Blend Bore Cleaner expands on that tradition with a cleaner specifically designed for modern firearms.

The cleaner is safe for use on anodized aluminum, titanium, steel, chrome, nickel, plastic, polycarbonate and rubber and features the same traditional Hoppe’s No. 9 smell as the original.
Price: $4.99 for 2 oz. bottle
