Firearms Rust Inhibitor

Many Solutions to Gun Cleaning, Few That Work

Here are some examples of gun cleaning technologies most firearm owners will be familiar with and why they have challenges.

Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI) — This technology is like hanging an air freshener in your gun cabinet. A VCI allegedly releases an airborne compound which settles on your gun and protects it from rust… for a while. But, if the gun cabinet is not airtight, the protection becomes ineffective. VCIs need to be periodically replaced so you will have to be diligent about it or rust will form.

All-in-One Solvents — These products claim to allow you do steps one-two-and three all with one product. They contain flammable, toxic solvents as a significant percentage of their chemistry. While solvents are effective at removing gun crud, they also tend to remove the oil and rust protectant they are mixed with. Perhaps the best way to describe these products might be “jack of all trades, master of none”?

General Purpose Rust-Inhibiting Lubricants — Many of these products are used faithfully by gun owners and each has some effectiveness in preventing rust, lubricating, and/or cleaning your gun. But if you’re looking at these products, then you are really looking at a product like HinderRUST that is the best of the best at both rust prevention and lubrication.
