KG-1 was the first product introduced to the shooting sports industry to specifically meet the need to remove carbon buildup and is the first step in the cleaning process. KG-1 is formulated to be environmentally friendly and contains no ammonia. Recommended for use by several barrel makers. KG-1 is pH neutral and is ideal for removing carbon from black powder rifles, centerfire, rimfire, automatic and gas assisted weapons.
KG-1 is a non-flammable specially
formulated material used to remove spent
carbon and firing residue from your firearm.
It is especially effective on black powder
residue. KG-1 will also loosen copper fouling.
When combined with KG-2/ KG-12, KG-3,
and KG-4, you will find no better cleaning
system on the market. Unlike other bore
cleaners, KG-1 & KG-2 contain no ammonia,
and will not harm metals. If needed, KG-1
can be diluted with 15% water.
Contains petroleum distillates and aliphatic
hydrocarbons. Avoid frequent prolonged
contact with skin. In case of contact with
eyes, flush thoroughly and seek medical
attention immediately. If swallowed, so not
induce vomiting, call physician immediately.
Directions: It is recommended that KG-1 be
applied when carbon and lead residue is
present. A bronze brush or patch can be used.
Step 1: Apply KG-1 Carbon Remover to areas
of the firearm caked with carbon. When
cleaning the bore, use slow, complete strokes
(full length of the bore). Allow to stand for
3-5 minutes. Do not apply KG-1 to painted or
Step 2: After applying KG-1, apply KG2 Bore
Restore or KG 12 (following instructions), to
complete the cleaning process.
Step 3: Flush residue left by KG-1, and
KG-2/KG12 with KG-3 Solvent & Degreaser
(or similar). After a good thorough flush,
soak a patch with KG-3 and pass through the
bore. Continue this procedure until a clean
patch is experienced. Inspect the firearm. If
copper or lead fouling is seen, repeat steps
1,2 & 3.
Step 4: After the firearm is determined to be
clean, it will be free from oil, grease, and
unprotected. Remember to use KG-4 Gun Oil
(or similar) to protect your firearm, and
avoid barrel pitting.
KG Gun Cleaning Instructions
Maintaining your Rifle - 4 basic problems to look at
1. Carbon removal
2. Copper removal
3. Solvent to flush out the residue
4. Gun Oil to protect your bore
Step 1 - KG-1 Carbon Removal
Pass a loose patch saturated with KG 1 Carbon Remover through bore slowly.
Then use a phosphor bronze brush saturated with KG 1 Carbon Remover, and pass through bore 10 - 15 times.
Let stand for five minutes, and patch out with KG 3. This normally removes all traces of powder & carbon fouling. If grey staining is still visible patch out with KG 3 until all grey stains are gone.
Step 2 - KG 12 Copper Removal
To remove copper fouling pass a nylon brush saturated with KG 12 big bore copper remover slowly through the bore for 10 - 15 strokes (heavy fouling let stand for 5 minutes). Patch out with KG 3 degreaser, until patch comes out clean. For stubborn copper fouling repeat this stage.
Step 3 - KG 3 Solvent & De-Greaser to flush out the residue Flush out residue with KG 3 Degreaser; and run patches saturated with KG 3 through bore until no staining on patches is observed.
Step 4 - KG 4 Gun Oil to protect your bore
Push one patch with just a couple of drops of KG 4 Gun Oil through bore then three tight patches.
Step 5 - KG 10 Advanced Moly Dri Lube - bolt lugs
Clean chamber and bolt lug recesses and use KG 10 Moly Dri Lube on bolt lugs.
Step 6 - before firing your rifle
Pass two dry patches through bore prior to shooting to remove any excess or accumulated oil.
KG 2 BORE POLISH
Pass 30 strokes through bore with phosphor bronze brush saturated with KG 2 Bore Polish.
Pass two dry patches through bore to remove excess then give ten stokes through bore with phosphor bronze brush saturated with KG 1 Carbon Remover.
KG 2 Bore Polish can be used as a bore polish & bore restorer every 100 rounds.
Rifle must be clean before using KG 2.
KG 6 MOLY BORE PREP (using Moly Bullets!)
Prior to application clean bore well using products KG 1 through KG 3. Apply KG 6 with brass brush and apply to bore (15-20 passes) to start the embedding process.
Keep bore wet with KG 6 during this process. Allow to set for at least 30 minutes to as long as overnight (the longer the moly is left on the bore better the result).
After setting up run one dry patch through the bore to remove residual KG 6.
