What is the difference between EWL and the regular Gun Lube?
The EWL has a higher wear property. The regular gun lubricant passed at 750 lbs. on the Falex Pin & V-Block Test while the EWL passed at 4500 lbs. This means that the EWL will endure more wear and last 4 to 5 times longer.

With the regular Gun Lube you can shoot 200-500 rounds with an AR, pull the bolt out and wipe it clean. With EWL you can shoot 2000 rounds with an AR, pull the bolt out and wipe it clean.

Do I need 725 Gun Cleaner or Carbon Killer?
That depends on a few things.
Are you using Slip 2000 lubricants?
Are you cleaning of a regular basis?
How many rounds do you shoot between cleaning?
What type of weapons are you shooting?

If you are using a Slip 2000 lubricant, shooting between 500-1000 rounds and cleaning regularly then the 725 Gun Cleaner should be all you need for most weapons. It is an all-purpose cleaner and can be applied directly or used in ultrasonic cleaners and parts washer.

If you are not using a Slip 2000 Lubricant, have neglected the cleaning of your guns or shoot automatic weapons with a lot of rounds, you may need Carbon Killer. It will remove more extreme carbon, lead and plastic fouling buildup. Carbon Killer is a far more aggressive cleaner and should only be used as directed.

What is the difference between EWL30 and EWL?
EWL30 has the same properties as EWL but is a lot thicker. It is more like a 30wt. motor oil and it pours like honey.

What is the red seal or plug in my lubricant bottle?
The red seal is in the lubricant bottles is what seals the cap and the bottle together. It is to prevent lubricant from leaking out if the bottle lays on its side. Do not remove this seal. Simply remove the cap, poke a hole in the seal and screw the cap back on. If the twist top is fully closed and the red seal is intact lubricant will not leak out.

Is Carbon Killer water based?
Yes. All of our cleaners are water based.

Is Carbon Killer reusable?
Yes. Carbon Killer can be used for multiple cleanings. The amount of cleanings depends on how it is stored and how long the product is exposed to the air. Over time its cleaning effectiveness will slowly decline and it will take longer to clean then when the product was new.

If I place an order with 2 day shipping when will I get it?
Upgrading to 2 day shipping does not mean you will have your order in 2 days. It means FedEx will deliver your order in 2 days after it has been processed and picked up.

Your order will be sent to the shipping department for processing the following business day from when it was placed. FedEx does not include the day of pickup as a shipping day.

Orders placed on a Friday will not start processing until Monday (pending holidays).

How should I use Carbon Killer?
Carbon Killer was designed for soaking heavily carboned internal steel parts (AR bolt, revolver cylinders, firing pins). Pour Carbon Killer into a small glass or steel tray and place carboned parts inside. This allows for easy removal of parts after cleaning. You can also saturate a patch of rag and place on area you need to clean but soaking parts is far more effective.

What can I put Carbon Killer in to soak my parts?
We recommended that you use a stainless steel or glass container. Some PET plastic containers are OK but lesser non-PET plastics are not a good idea. Carbon Killer is designed to break and dissolve plastic away from steel so it can be aggressive on some plastic containers.

Are your gun lubricants water based?
No. This is a common mistake. Although all of our gun cleaners are water based our gun lubricants are not water based.
