They make it sound like Rain-X for your barrel, but has science really designed something you just swab on, shoot 8-10 rounds and then it will give that much protection? I'm trying to imagine how it would survived very many subsequent firings, but then again, chemists are doing some amazing things, lately. I guess just about anything is possible.

If you had a gun with a really rough barrel I guess you could scrub it, use some bore paste and then try this stuff, to see where you wound up?

Wasn't there a bore product out back in the late '60's that was similar to this particular product? Seems like I read an article on it several years ago, but haven't seen any around or for sale.

Teflon product?

Is Bore Coat a variation on the theme of the old S&W Friction Block and current Tetra Lube products, or is it something different? The "25 microns" and "molecular bonding" buzzwords apply to all of the above.

Sinclair had a note in their catalog that the benchrest shooters have shied away from Teflon products in their bores, and Sinclair no longer recommends using products containing Teflon in bores, but I don't know why. Any of you chemical engineers want to enlighten us, please?

ive been using bore coat and gun shield for about 3 months now and its amazing stuff, especially in my dirty muzzle loaders.

Thats looks to be their bulk gun kit. They have kits that do smaller quantities for less $$.
