USP Bore Paste/Gun Cleaning Oil
HISTORY OF USP BORE PASTE™
Back in the mid-1950’s, a then young editor of Field & Stream Magazine, *Warren Page, contacted us to develop a compound that would clean the fouling out of all firearms. That compound was marketed under another name through 1996, when the marketer decided to close his business. Since we developed and manufactured "the original formula," and since we received requests for its continued availability, we decided to give it a new name – USP BORE PASTE™ (which is the original formula), and to add a new product normally used in conjunction with most precision machinery, USP GUN CLEANING OIL™. The oil is a custom blended formula that has cleaning, penetrating, and lubricating properties and is compatible for use with USP Bore Paste.
The old product was put up in a 2 oz. jar, which most users applied by sticking their finger in the jar. In developing the new package, we decided to place the product in a tube, which can be applied without getting it on your fingers, and since very little oxygen gets into the tube, allows for longer shelf and storage life.
USP BORE PASTE™ has been used extensively in cleaning firearms that have fired moly-coated ammunition as well as all other types of ammunition. Some 14 years ago, we were contracted by Merrill Martin, a writer for Precision Shooting Magazine, one of many hats that Merrill wears, to take part in a study concerning moly-coated ammunition. Thousands of test firings of moly-coated bullets were conducted. The result has been enhanced accuracy along with longer bore life (up to 4 times normal bore life, which, up to this time, has been approximately 2,500 rounds). In addition, it was noted that the bore did not need cleaning for as many as 100 shots while maintaining accuracy during all shots. Reference: "Adventures with Moly", Parts 1 and 2 (Precision Shooting, August 1998). All authored by Rudolph Constantine.
So you can see that we have been involved for many years in enhancing accuracy from all firearms.
