My personal use of TM's products is nearing 2 years, and I have not yet to find its equal in today's sea ofcleaning solvents. I stated 5/15/04, "I would highly recommend to anyone who cares about their firearms." That feeling has been reinforced ten fold since that date. It is truly the only solvent I have found that will perform cleaning tasks for jacketed bullet, cast bullet and rimfire. You have certainly come up with an honest to goodness “multi-purpose” bore solvent. It is an answer to my prayers. I no longer have to have 4 or 5 different bottles of “stuff” to clean with.

I am as fastidious as they come when it comes to bore cleaners, lubricants and preservatives; and I test every new product that comes along, because I do a lot of cleaning. The TM solvent is sensational, not only on copper- and carbon-fouled barrels but also on carbon, lead and plastic-fouled shotgun bores and carbon, lead and copper-fouled handgun bores and cylinders. I have to work with them all, and TM is up to the universal challenge. As stated, the TM solution really does cling. When I look down the bore after running a patch through, TM’s in there covering the bore thoroughly and circumferentially 360 degrees. I just tested two foam cleaners on six dirty bores. I was disappointed. After three treatments at 4 hour intervals, I had to really clean them up with TM solvent.
I call TM my "Crown Prince" of cleaning solvents."

I have been building Bench Rest rifles and match grade barrels since 1979 and haveused every solvent to come along. YourTM solvent is the best I have ever used. It is, without a doubt, the best carbon remover I have ever used and works just great on copper. I, along with other barrel makers, will tell you that if a solvent removes the carbon fouling, copper removal is practically automatic. I feel that TM is the only solvent (except for plain old Hoppes) that is safe when left in the bore any length of time.
Every customer that I have given ti to has said the same thing and they re turn to buy more.
My customers come first. I owe it to them to recommend products that I think are best. Your TM solution solvent is, in my opinion, just that.
I had a new barrel at the time I got the TM Solution. With an unfired barrel and a new solvent, why not use it exclusively with this barrel. That is what I did, and I must say that the Broughton barrel did not copper at all. I cleaned the barrel with the new solvent before firing the first round, and I have not had a copper-fouling problem since round one. Equally impressive is its ability to remove carbon. This new product is amazing in its ability to remove this black, accuracy-robbing demon. I checked an old barrel after cleaning (with TM) with a bore scope and it failed to show the “black top road” carbon of most barrels with 1500 rounds (like this one has). When I received this product, I must confess that I said to myself … “Another bore solvent; don’t we have enough now?” After using it for three months, I must say it is my most-used solvent. I can recommend this product without reservation.
I thought I had used every barrel cleaning solution on the market, until recently. On a nice day at the range, a fellow member offered me his TM Bore Cleaner to remove some visible copper streaks from one of my custom rifles that my myriad of cleaning solutions would not remove. I figured it was just some more "snake oil in a bottle" until I put it on a patch and ran it through the rifle bore.
The solution is the most amazing bore cleaning solution I have ever seen. It attacks carbon fouling like no other and it won't quit until all of the carbon and copper is gone. No more need for the vast array of cleaning solutions/solvents since this bore solution performs like it does. Thanks for a fine product!

I have been using the TM Bore Cleaning Solvent and it is finest bore cleaner I've ever used. I have seen an untold number of bore cleaners come and go; most of them are useless.
The TM Bore Cleaning Solvent is different. It works and it leaves the bore squeaky-clean, with a minimum of cleaning rod strokes. I'm a true believer, when it comes to this product.

Recently I purchased a 16 oz bottle TM Bore Cleaning Solvent from Sinclair International. I think in the past fifty years I've tried just about every firearm bore cleaning product that's been on the market.
Since I started using TM solvent I feel that I have found the perfect all around bore cleaner! It's not only does a great job getting the powder fouling out of a barrel, it's the best copper remover I've found!
My cleaning method now is to use Tm Solvent at the range immediately after shooting while the barrel is still warm using normal cleaning procedures. I then leave the solution in the barrel overnight to remove any remaining traces of copper.
The next day, a few patches through the barrel with your solvent followed by a couple of dry patches leaves a bright, copper free barrel. A patch moistened with a good quality gun oil finishes what used to be a time consuming chore!
Thank you for providing the shooting community with a very fine product.
