Cleaning Product?

I saw some talk about this new gun cleaner. Has anyone tried/used or even heard about it? BreakThrough Military Grade Weapon Cleaning Solvent.
It comes in several sizes, I bought the 6oz spray bottle, it was a little pricey 23 dollars and change about $3 dollars an ounce. It is a clear liquid and can detect no odor from just smelling the contents in the bottle.
Bottle says "Caution- Mixture is Combustible"
Removes ALL fouling. ph Neutral, non-corrosive, Not Flammable.

I have some pistols to clean so I will report back when I get that done.

I don't expect it to replace my trusty Hoppes #9 and BreakFree but you never know.

Be careful. That could be easily mistaken for a bottle of water. Coming from a guy who brushed his teeth with Brylcreem. A little dab did me.

...I'll be ordering more

The Breakthrough solvent works really well, better than Hoppes or the CLPs I've tried in my opinion. As an added bonus there's no odor, so no getting scolded for using it in the house :-) I believe I paid less at Brownells?
I really like the High Purity oil they offer as well, especially for my Micro. I think the thinner nature of it allows that gun in particular to run better???
...If you've seen the "Kimber 1000 round torture test" that James Yeager did, he cleaned and lubed with the Breakthrough products prior to the test. That's what got me to give it a try.
...will be curious to hear what you think about the solvent.

I have seen the display at my LGS but waiting on someone else to try, I really like my CLP and Barrel Blaster.

It will be interesting to see what you think of it Arland. Over the years I've tried new and improved this and that but always go back to my Hoppes #9. Something about the smell that brings back memories of cleaning guns as a kid with my dad and my grandfather.

I use Breakthrough gun oil, just because the bottle looked cool sitting there on the shelf and the clear oil looked, well, cool too. How's that for using a product for good reasons.

But I never used their cleaner.

I was a little confused with that myself Zoomy.

May have to look that up.
