Ballistol review by Mike Smith

This is the Review that my No.1 gun has writen about the Ballistol care cloth.

This nearly 100 year old lubricant is hugely popular with me and should catch on fast. It’s Non-toxic and bio-degradable. I found this product to be great on my air arms s410 and gave a shine like nothing I have ever tried before. Ballistol is ideal for cleaning and maintaining every part of my rifle and a whole host of things I have tried. Together with a quite nice smell I think it Cleans and protect's wood, brings out the wood grain and luster and protects it against damage from humidity, dry air and insects. Effectively cleans, rejuvenates and water proofs smooth leathers. Protects against the impact of water, insects, fungi, boots, and holsters etc.

A friend of mine came over asked me if I could do anything with his rifle he had been shooting and it rained as he had forgot to clean his gun down when he got home there where rust spots all over the metal work. After calling him a very stupid boy four or five time was going to rub it down with a little wire wool and treat it in the manner of some bluing agent I bought a while ago for an old 177 I had when I was a youngster. But before I reached for it I thought I would try some Ballistol in a sachet I had not long since opened. By be-Jesus the Ballistol seamed to just absorb the light rust spots what a result I thought. Needless to say my pal was very great full for the once over on his rifle, it really did look great with a brand new shine and no rust spots.
