    Re: Microlon Gun Juice

    I did a pretty good test on a couple of rifles a couple of years ago. And I didn't see any significant increase in velocity. I used it for breaking a couple of used rifles that were bad foulers and the break-in improved that a little but I wouldn't necessarily credit gun juice with it.

    If you try it, be careful not to leave any wet juice in the bore as the instructions say you should. That is dangerous, unless you are using a greatly reduced load. I know this from experience.

    In the long run, not worth the time, effort and $$ IME.

    I'm going to give some custom barrels a melonite nitride treatment which i have read a lot of good things about. but that needs to be done on a new or almost new barrel.

    Good luck,

    Here's another report. Apparently they changed the application procedure after my incident with wet juice in the bore. More related links at the bottom of the linked page.

    Re: Microlon Gun Juice - Chrome-lined bore

    So I changed my mind and decided to Gun Juice treat my 5.56 AR15. It's a factory CMMG M4 carbine model with the factory chrome-lined barrel. I chronographed the first three rounds fired out of the rifle several years ago, prior to Gun Juice treatment. When I'm done with the GJ treatment, I'll fire a couple more of the same factory rounds, and compare MV to the velocities I recorded several years ago in the untreated factory barrel.

    I'm still applying the GJ treatment and am going to fire another 4 rounds down the bore before calling it good. I can hardly believe the HUGE reduction in copper fouling I experienced by the 8th shot fired on the Gun Juice treated bore. This is a rifle I don't shoot much (shot it 4 times in 3 years). But when I finally decided to clean the bore after having fired those 4 rounds down the bore several years ago, it was copper fouled so bad I decided to apply the GJ and see what became of the copper fouling in this chrome-lined carbine length AR15 barrel. This is the first chrome-lined bore I've treated with Gun Juice. Copper fouling after the 8th shot fired is just about nonexistent, especially compared to the copper fouling experienced following the first 4 rounds fired.

    I've moved on to melonite treatment for new barrels in the future. I decided to treat this chrome-line bore because I had the GJ on hand, and the bore was fouling quite a lot of copper.

    I'll say this about Gun Juice. Every barrel I've treated has resulted in reduced rates of fouling and much less time and effort to clean.
