TALON-EagleShield-Combo

Gun guys (and gals) tend to stick with what works for them. Once they arrive at the tools, fluids and scrubbers they like to keep their guns spic and span, it can be hard to get them to change. Still, Talon Ordnance wants you to toss out all those brass and bronze brushes you’ve been using to clean your heaters. They say that if you use their new Eagle Shield CLP and Weapon Cleaner, you can swab out your gun using just a cushy-soft cotton swab. Press release after the jump . . .

Jackson, Miss. – That abrasive metal brush can now be replaced with a cotton swab, resulting in a cleaner, better lubricated weapon… too good to be true? Not in this case. TALON Ordnance, LLC has announced the introduction of Eagle Shield, a line of weapon lubricants and cleaners that has been scientifically proven to improve the reliability and durability of tactical firearms.

“We wanted to formulate a superior lubricant to operate at temperature extremes, and a cleaner that could restore weapons faster and easier than other products in the current marketplace,” said Clay Baldwin, co-founder and CEO of TALON.

Eagle Shield CLP is designed to keep weapons functioning under the most extreme circumstances. In chemical lab tests, Eagle Shield has outperformed competitors in both extreme heat conditions and sub-freezing environments. It physically prevents fouled carbon from adhering to the treated metal, thereby reducing the friction and heat associated with such malfunctions. An added benefit is that Eagle Shield dramatically shortens subsequent cleaning time.

Rhett Anthony, a retired deputy U.S. Marshal, commented, “I recently attended a carbine instructor course where I fired nearly 1,000 rounds in four days. I used Eagle Shield to clean and lube, and never had one malfunction. This was a first for my old AR-15.”

Eagle Shield Weapon Cleaner is designed to clean firearms quickly and without the potential damage created by use of a metal brush. “We’ve gotten rid of the wire brush and suggest using a cotton barrel mop or nylon brush to easily lift carbon, copper and lead by allowing the cleaner to penetrate the metal,” Baldwin added.

Its visual indicators allow users to recognize the presence of copper and lead, which ensures that weapons have been cleaned to standard. If the patch or rag turns blue, there is copper present; if there is foaming action, lead is present.

“I fired 3,000 rounds over 5 days and purposely never cleaned my handgun. I wanted to see how long the gun would continue to shoot using only Eagle Shield CLP. It never failed at any point during the course. I’ve never experienced that level of performance from any other product,” said Brian O., a former Navy Special Warfare operator.

Beyond the tactical and military world, Eagle Shield has proven its worth with hard-core outdoorsmen, who hunt for a living.

“I’ve been amazed at the difference Eagle Shield products make,” said Five Time World Champion Turkey Caller Preston Pittman. “ From iced over conditions while duck hunting, to grinding my shotgun in the dirt as I belly crawl, sneaking up on a big gobbler, Eagle Shield cleans and lubricates better than any product I’ve used in the past 50 years,” he added.

To view the CLP in action against five of its top competitors, watch the following comparison test videos to see how Eagle Shield remains stable when heated and cooled to extremes:

  1. I’d love to see TTAG do a head to head test of multiple cleaning products to see which one preforms the best. If stuff like this actually works as well as advertisers I might need to move away from the standard CLP that I have been using, since I mainly shoot military surplus, and I hate scrubbing them with a metal brush.

    • +1 I’d love to see some consumer reports style, or in depth shootingthebull410 type, product comparisons. That’d draw some good traffic to the blog too I imagine. Too much to ask for John Stossel to narrate? 😉

  2. I use regular CLP and REM Oil. Rem is CHEAP. How much is this? Better than regular CLP? Sure I’ll try it some day…

  3. I would hardly call 1000 rounds in four days a harsh test for any carbine. That’s about 250 rounds per day if my mathemagics are correct. Hell, I call that a long weekend at the range. But if it can keep his DPMS oracle at a MRBF rate of 1000, must be worth every cent for this snake oil.

    Yeah, I’m trolling hard.

  4. “that has been scientifically proven to improve the reliability and durability of tactical firearms.” K, lets see the report from the independent lab. …well?

    And for the love of everything Rock, someone tune whatever the hell instrument that is playing in their video.

    • That was some great reading. Thanks for the link.
      I’ll be buying some hornady one shot and some frog lube.
      By the gallon.

      • My best friends – both experienced shooters and hunters even by TTAG standards – have been having issues with Froglube below 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Not sure if that describes your hunting conditions. Maybe that’s not scientific enough for you, but my AR will be wearing Otis Ultrabore 085 on my hunt next weekend. Expected temps 10-40 degrees. YMMV.

        • I’ve had issues with Frog Lube and cold weather for a long time. It’s one of the primary reasons I don’t use it, aside from the cost and their weird ass distribution network that makes it difficult for me to get it in reasonable quantities as a dealer. Aside from that, there’s a forum thread floating around where someone did some digging and discovered that Frog Lube is almost identical to T/C Bore Butter in every way except the coloration. I just can’t see spending the money on it.

        • After hunting this morning with my frog lubed Ruger 22/45 and having it refuse to fire when its below 30 outside (gun was stripped prior, cleaned in ultrasonic cleaner and frogged…), tried multiple rounds and it simply would not fire until warmed up. Sat the jar of frog lube outside, currently 38 degrees, for one hour and its a little thicker than maple syrup. At an hour and a half, you can turn the bottle upside down and you have to squeeze to make it come out. I think that was just viscous enough to slow down my firing pin. Goodbye frog.

  5. Huh.

    The US Army tested the 1911 pistol for 6,000 rounds without cleaning, and back in those days, the preferred lubricant for guns was sperm whale oil.

    From my perspective, any lube/cleaner that doesn’t allow you to get through at least 5K rounds isn’t much of an improvement over the various brands of panther piss that are out on the market.

    I applaud cleaners that work and reduce the need for a brush. More than a few rifle barrels have been ruined by excessive use of a brush. But the issue is that they have to work, and for me to see the extent to which they remove copper or lead fouling, I’d want to see the bore scoped.

    As for lubrication: In the new year, I’m going to start playing with the Dupont Krytox line of lubes:

    http://www2.dupont.com/Lubricants/en_US/tech_info/Index.html

    They’re a line of synthetic, high-temp/low-temp lubes that aren’t flammable. Very interesting stuff, and unlike most gun lubes, Dupont publishes a full MSDS and spec sheet.

  6. Keeps saying damage from a metal brush. What are they using for a metal brush? Guess they never heard of brass on steel. Since my weapons are Glocks, would like to know how the stuff works on synthetics. Metal on metal is one thing, metal on plastic is different. Hard to shoot when the lube dissolves the frame. Other than that I’m sure it’s great.

  7. My mom always told me ‘the paper holds still’; meaning you can say or print or (today) record anything you want, but it doesn’t make it true, or factual. Look at the horse feathers being issued from DC!
    Wow… Those videos Really Convinced Me! I gotta git me sum!

  8. I’ve been using blue wonder cleaner and slipstream products for a while with no problems.
    I too would like to see a comprehensive cleaner and lube testing set done with the popular and edgy products.
    I’d be happy to send in a couple to whoever does the testing.

  9. Talon Ordnance apparently subscribes to a P.T. Barnum marketing strategy when peddling the greatest gun cleaner and lubricant known to modern man which leaves no doubt the company is EXTEMELY PROUD of their super duper be all end all EAGLE SHIELD products.

    How proud is Talon Ordnance of the their stupendous and patriotic products capable of shielding an Eagle? How about $14.99 proud for EIGHT OUNCES of Eagle Shield Cleaner, and $12.99 proud for TWO OUNCES of Eagle Shield Lubricant!

    BUT WAIT! If you purchase BOTH ridiculously priced products as a Combo, the good folks at Talon Ordnance will knock a whopping 99 cents off the regular purchase price of $27.98 and the Combo gives you EIGHT OUNCES of Eagle Shield Cleaner and TWO OUNCES of Eagle Shield Lubricant for only $26.99, yes folks your heard it right, 99 cents off the regular purchase price for the combo at $26.99 which gives you EIGHT OUNCES of Eagle Shield Cleaner and TWO OUNCES of Eagle Shield Lubricant. DON’T DELAY, ORDER YOURS TODAY!

    • They need to get Erwin Mainway to promote it! It’d be perfect for his lineup; fit right in with the Bag ‘O Glass!
