That's not how the product was instructed to be installed/applied by the manufacturer. The bore was to be cleaned down to the bone prior to every treatment and additional shot fired. Forget all of that process anyhow. There's a newer installation process that is MUCH less tedious, and is now recommended by the manufacturer. I've used the new process on several of my rifle barrels and believe me, it's much less time consuming and seems to work just as well. If you want to send me your e-mail address via the LRH personal message system, I'll see if I can locate my electronic copy of the new Gun Juice application instructions.

The original instructions I received and used were so tedious, I don't know that many people would stick with it and do it properly. The new application instructions are the way to go.

Same to any other forum members. If you'd like the new application instructions, send me an e-mail address via the LRH personal message system. Reason for this is I don't know how to post an electronic document to a LRH Forum Thread. And I don't want to type the instructions, when I can send them directly via e-mail attachment.

I treated the exterior surface of several of my rifles at the same time I treated the bores using the new application instructions. Just got back from Kodiak Island. Spent 7 days in the off-and-on rain in a tent camp with no heat. I could tell that the Gun Juice treated barreled action (exterior) was helping prevent corrosion.

To the member that wanted hard evidence of improved bore/throat life, I'm not the guy to talk to, because I'll probably never shoot the throat out on any of my rifles. Other than maybe a 25 RUM. Cuz that cartridge may only take a couple hundred rounds to smoke the throat at 3850 fps MV. Point is, I don't shoot enough to shoot the throats out of my rifles.

A gun smith from Canada that introduced this Forum to the product claims he gets extended throat life. He and his customers may shoot enough to figure that one out.

Re: 25% Off Sale on Gun Juice - good until July 8, 2011

I just received a promotional e-mail message from Microlon Products, the manufacturer/seller of Gun Juice. Here's the link to Microlon's website: Save Money on Gas, Friction Reduction, Engine Treatments, Fuel Savings, Auto, Motorcycle

Use Promotional Code: FIREWORKS

Just in case you'd like to try Gun Juice at this discounted purchase price. BTW, I do not work for Microlon. They're located in Michigan... I'm in Alaska. I'm on their mailer list due to having purchased from them in the past.

Re: gun juice what is it?

I e-mailed Phorwath and got the new instructions. Here they are:

I'm planning on giving this a try on my new Savage 110 FCP in 338LM that is supposed to coming. I figure what can I lose? 9 bucks? Ive read of one guy who actually lost velocity, and many more who have gained and plenty who have stayed the same. I have yet to read a report that said it was not easier to clean.
Thanks for the reply Paul

Re: gun juice what is it?

I have a heat gun. But I want to know how do you know when you get to the correct temp? Also is there a way to concentrate the heat just down the tube? I will probably make it a go if I can use my heat gun. I would really like to use it on my 7rum. I think that would be a good candidate for this stuff

Re: gun juice what is it?

Microlon just sent me a summer special offer of 20% off all of their products - good until August 15th only. Use promo code during checkout SS20 or call toll free 866-452-3911. That's about as good a discount as I've ever seen offered.

Here's a link to their Gun Juice product:

Welcome to the Microlon Products store

It used to be cheaper to purchase by their 4 oz. can size container. It looks like it's now cheaper by the oz. to simply purchase their 1 oz. plastic containers. One oz. should treat probably... two or more rifles, in my experience.
