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.
