For Use on Traditional Style Blackpowder Firearms

 

Important:  Do not let Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner contact oiled stocks as it will remove the oil.

 

1.           Squeeze the amount of Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner that will be needed to clean the firearm into a small dish or bowl and roll a brass gun brush of the proper bore size in the cleaner until it is well coated.  Run the brush back and forth through the bore 5-6 times and then repeat to be sure the entire bore surface is well saturated with cleaner.  Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner works by "chemical reaction", so let the gel remain on the surface for 5-10 minutes - or longer for bores with heavy deposits of fouling or lead.

 

2.            While waiting for Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to work on the bore, the other components of the firearm can be prepared for cleaning.  First remove the percussion nipple on a percussion firearm or the vent hole screw or vent hole liner on a flintlock and set them aside soaking in a small dish of Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner.  Then apply Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to a proper diameter pipe cleaner and run this through the nipple or flash hole channel.  Let the gel remain on the surface for 5–10 minutes - or longer for heavy deposits of fouling.

 

3.            Using a soft brass brush, apply Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to the area around the percussion nipple, vent hole, hammer and any other area of the firearm affected by fouling. Let the gel remain on the surface for 5-10 minutes - or longer for heavy deposits of fouling.

 

4.            After letting Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner sit in the bore for 5-10 minutes, run the brush back and forth through the bore 5-6 more times and then run dry patches down the bore until they come out dry and clean.  For the cleanest possible bore, it is important to use a patch that fits tightly in the bore which forces itself into the lands and grooves.  If your patches are still dirty after 2-3 times, repeat step 1 above.

 

5.            Once the bore has been cleaned, run a clean, dry pipe cleaner through the nipple or flash hole channel, around the threads for the nipple or vent hole screw and through the orifice of the nipple or vent hole screw or vent hole liner.  Continue this process until the pipe cleaners come out dry and clean.

 

6.            Using clean, dry cloths or cleaning patches, wipe all areas which have had gun cleaner applied to them including the percussion nipple, vent hole and hammer until they are clean, dry and free of all gun cleaner and residue.

 

7.            IMPORTANT!!  After using Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner, the metal surfaces of the firearm will be chemically clean and free from all lead, powder and other fouling residue, thus it is VERY IMPORTANT to finish the cleaning process by applying a coat of quality gun oil, like Blue Wonder™ Disotec XFR, to all metal surfaces to prevent rusting.

For Use on Inline Style Blackpowder Firearms

 

1.            Squeeze the amount of Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner that will be needed to clean the firearm into a small dish or bowl and roll a brass gun brush of the proper bore size in the cleaner until it is well coated.  Run the brush back and forth through the bore 5-6 times and then repeat to be sure the entire bore surface is well saturated with cleaner.  Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner works by "chemical reaction", so let the gel remain on the surface for 5-10 minutes - or longer for bores with heavy deposits of fouling or lead.

 

2.            While waiting for Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to work on the bore, the other components of the firearm can be prepared for cleaning.  First remove the percussion nipple or breech plug and bolt or firing mechanism, and set them aside soaking in a small dish of Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner.  Then apply Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to the threads that hold the percussion nipple or breech plug in place.  Let the gel remain on the surface for 5–10 minutes - or longer for heavy deposits of fouling.

 

3.            Using a soft brass brush, apply Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to all other areas of the firearm affected by fouling.  Let the gel remain on the surface for 5-10 minutes - or longer for heavy deposits of fouling.

 

4.            After letting Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner sit in the bore for 5-10 minutes, run the brush back and forth, completely through the bore 5-6 more times and then run dry patches through the bore until they come out dry and clean.  For a cleaner bore, wad up a piece up toilet paper, paper towel or gun patch so it fits tightly in the bore and push it through with the cleaning rod.  This cleans better than loose patches as it is forced into the lands and grooves.  If your patches are still dirty after 2-3 times, repeat step 1 above.

 

5.            Once the bore has been cleaned, run a clean, dry pipe cleaner through the nipple orifice and nipple channel of the breech plug making sure to remove all residues from the threads of both pieces.

 

6.            Using clean, dry cloths or cleaning patches, wipe all areas which have had gun cleaner applied to them including the percussion nipple, breech plug and bolt firing mechanism until they are clean, dry and free of all gun cleaner and residue.

 

7.            IMPORTANT!!  After using Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner, the metal surfaces of the firearm will be chemically clean and free from all lead, powder and other fouling residue, thus it is VERY IMPORTANT to finish the cleaning process by applying a coat of quality gun oil, like Blue Wonder™ Disotec XFR, to all metal surfaces to prevent rusting.

1.      Squeeze the amount of Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner that will be needed to clean the firearm into a small dish or bowl and roll a brass gun brush of the proper bore size in the cleaner until it is well coated.  After removing the cylinder run the brush Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner works by "chemical reaction", so let the gel remain on the surface for 5-10 minutes - or longer for bores with heavy deposits of fouling or lead.

 

2.            While waiting for Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to work on the bore the other components of the firearm can be prepared for cleaning.  Remove the percussion nipples from the cylinder and set them aside soaking in a small dish of Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner.  Then apply Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to the threads that hold the percussion nipples in place using a clean dry pipe cleaner and let the gel remain on the surface for 5-10 minutes - or longer for heavy deposits of fouling.

 

3.            Apply Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to a brass gun brush of the proper size and run the brush back and forth through in the cylinder the bore 5-6 times and then repeat to be sure the entire bore surface is well saturated with cleaner.  run the brush into each of the chambers on the cylinder, giving them a good coating of Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner.  Set the cylinder aside, letting the gel remain on the surface for 5 - 10 minutes - or longer for heavy deposits of fouling.

 

4.            Using a soft brass brush, apply Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner to all other areas of the firearm affected by fouling.  Let the gel remain on the surface for 5-10 minutes - or longer for heavy deposits of fouling.

 

5.            After letting Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner sit in the bore for 5-10 minutes, run the brush back and forth, completely through the bore 5-6 more times and then run dry patches through the bore until they come out dry and clean.  For a cleaner bore, wad up a piece up toilet paper, paper towel or gun patch so it fits tightly in the bore and push it through with the cleaning rod.  This cleans better than loose patches as it is forced into the lands and grooves.  If your patches are still dirty after 2-3 times, repeat step 1 above.

 

6.            Once you have cleaned the bore take a clean, dry pipe cleaner and run it through the orifice of each nipple and around the threads of each nipple making sure to remove all residues. Then use a clean, dry rag or patch to clean all external surfaces of the each nipple.

 

7.            Using clean, dry cloths, cleaning patches or pipe cleaners, remove the residue from the interior and nipple threads of each chamber as well as any other areas which have had gun cleaner applied to them. Continue this process until the cloths, patches and pipe cleaners come out dry and clean of all residues.

 

8.            IMPORTANT!!  After using Blue Wonder™ Gun Cleaner, the metal surfaces of the firearm will be chemically clean and free from all lead, powder and other fouling residue, thus it is VERY IMPORTANT to finish the cleaning process by applying a coat of quality gun oil like, Blue Wonder™ Disotec XFR, to all metal surfaces to prevent rusting.
