We broke firearm cleaning down into three easy steps to take some of the guesswork out of how to get the maximum results out of your firearms. The Shooter’s Choice Pro-Care System walks you through the 3 essential gun cleaning steps.
Step One: start with the clean.
Clean and remove fouling build-up from the bore with a bore cleaner using a quality phosphor bronze brush. After cleaning the bore, the action needs to be cleaned/degreased. Apply a small amount of bore cleaner of your choice. Using a nylon bristle utility brush, gently scrub the parts to loosen residue from all areas of the action, receiver and trigger assembly. Spray the action cleaner/degreaser on the action to flush away solvent, fouling, old lubricant and residue.
TIP #1: Remove powder and plastic wad residue with the Shotgun and Choke Tube Cleaner. Also effective at removing plastic and carbon residue from sabot ammunition of inline muzzleloaders.
TIP #2: For stubborn jobs, such as heavy copper build-up, use our Copper Remover after first
using the MC-7 Bore Cleaner or MC-7 Extra Strength Bore Cleaner. For heavy lead build-up, we recommend using our Lead Remover solvent.
TIP #3: Although all of our degreasers perform the same job, you’ll want to use our Polymer Safe Quick Scrub for firearms that have synthetic/ polymer stocks, frames, receivers, parts, etc.
TIP #4: Our Quick Scrub III is very effective but if not used as directed could be harmful to painted surfaces, plastics, polymers and wood surfaces.

Step Two: Lubricate.
After cleaning / degreasing the action, lubricating the moving parts of the firearm is necessary. FP-10 Lubricant Elite® is best for closer tolerances and most general lubrication needs. It can also be used as a highly effective C.L.P. For areas that have wider tolerances or need lubrication to adhere under heavy demands and / or extreme heat, our All Weather High-Tech Grease is highly recommended.
Both lubricants can be used on different parts of the action within the same firearm.
Suggested STEP TWO Products:
• FP-10 Lubricant Elite®
• Synthetic All Weather High-Tech
Step Three: Protect.
To help protect firearms from rust and corrosion, use Rust Prevent on all metallic surfaces including inside the bore or barrel. This superior anti-oxidant, moisture displacing agent is engineered to preserve all gun metals and will ensure a greater chance of keeping the firearm from rust, pitting and corrosion. In addition, it will effectively neutralize the acids from airborne salts, fingerprints and perspiration contact.
Although FP-10 Lubricant will help protect moving parts, Rust Prevent is the recommended product to safeguard all the metal on your firearms. Shooter’s Choice Rust Prevent can and should be applied over our FP-10 Lubricant Elite®.
