When I first saw the bottles, I found the Ogre on the front to be humorous and silly, but it does fit their motto literally. I found it to be a nice touch. I had hopes that it could live up to its claims since i was going to be needing it to do the job of cleaning my wife's Walther CCP.
I found the cleaner to indeed have a light odor, but it also came with a huge list of warnings and conditions to the products usage. The liquid came out of the bottle as a clear liquid and I used a Qtip to apply it to the parts of the gun that needed the most attention. I then used a Glock cleaning brush to apply the cleaner to the bore of the pistol, which didn't really have much fouling. The piston needed the most attention of all the other parts since the CCP tends to get very caked on fouling in that area. I let the cleaner then sit for five minutes.
After about five minutes, I used a blue shop paper towel to wipe off all the surfaces that were dirty. The feed ramp wiped off easy as it always does, and the slide wiped out easy as well, so no real surprises there. But where i was caught off-guard was when i went to brush out the barrel with the bore brush, and brush off the breechface and piston with a nylon brush. After wiping down the freshly brushed breechface and piston, i found that there was little to no removed fouling that looked like it could come off. Only the very loose carbon came off. The barrel had the same issue of not having much of the fouling coming out. I decided that it wouldn't be fair if i didn't try it a few more times.
After an hour of letting the cleaner sit longer and longer each time, trying shaking up the cleaner, and even trying the oil, I had virtually zero change. I hesitate to make a huge claim since I understand that products like this can be finicky. When making biodegradable products, you do have to sacrifice certain advantages and results that more merciless products like good old Hoppes #9 is known for. Granted this product is attempting to offer a medium between Hoppes #9 and a environmentally friendly product, they seem to have sacrificed too much. Others may have had better results, so I will reserve any final judgements on the cleaner.
I found the gun oil to have the same smell, if not thicker, as the CLP I was issued in the military. Not at all like Break-free CLP, which is a good amount more tolerable. It smelled like the oil was a mix of Mobil1 and transmission fluid. It was a thick brown substance and I found it to be very slimy and not at all like an oil I know of.
Again, this is just my results and what I noticed. Some of you out there may love this stuff and get the best results in the world. I on the other hand did not and I wanted to share my experiences as an honest reviewer, but without calling the product completely bad. That being said, i do not consider this as being RESULTS since I can get the piston down to the metal and the breechface spotless just with a CLP without the need for a designated cleaner. This is just my experiences and my standards and you are free to have your own. I just thought it would be good to share what occurred during my testing.
