The Hoppe’s No. 9 scent is one of my favorite, right up there with the smell of steak on the grill and the smell of new leather, but the formula is old, very old, and there is no shortage of modern bore cleaning solutions on the market. Hoppe’s have cleverly formulated a new modern synthetic bore cleaner with the same scent as the classic Hoppe’s No. 9. From the press release …
Hoppe’s, the industry leader in gun care cleaning products and accessories since 1903, has introduced a new cleaning solution for high-performance, modern firearms. The new Hoppe’s No. 9 Synthetic Blend has the same recognizable scent and cleaning power as the traditional No. 9 formula, but is a non-flammable and biodegradable bore cleaner.
Hoppe’s No. 9 Synthetic Blend builds on the tradition established by Frank Hoppe more than 110 years ago when he developed Hoppe’s No. 9. Hoppe concocted the unique formula to combat the corrosive qualities of smokeless gun powder, which at the time was being sought after by the firearms industry as a replacement for black powder. While the challenge was different at the turn of the 20th Century, the commitment to innovation at Hoppe’s remains the same. Designed for today’s modern firearms and ammunition, Hoppe’s No. 9 Synthetic Blend is a powerful bore cleaning solution.
The new Hoppe’s No. 9 Synthetic Blend maintains the standard set by the original formula while addressing the demands of the modern firearm. The new synthetic blend deeply penetrates the bore for superior removal of carbon, lead and copper fouling. In addition, the bore cleaner is safe on materials used on today’s firearms, including anodized aluminum, titanium, steel, chrome, nickel, plastic, polycarbonate, and rubber. By utilizing the cleaning power of Hoppe’s No. 9 Synthetic Blend with a Hoppe’s Boresnake, gun owners can drastically reduce the amount of time spent cleaning firearms and enjoy more time behind the trigger.
Made in the USA, the new Hoppe’s No. 9 Synthetic Blend is available in sizes ranging from 2 oz. to 1 gallon with MSRPs from $4.95 – $99.95.
