Heating Up: FIREClean Under the Microscope

Photo credit: Vickers Tactical

FIREClean, one of the the most aggressively marketed gun lubricants since it hit stores in 2012, is getting the eyeball from its competitors and from some third-party industry figures. Known as a "green clean" product that lubes firearms while removing fouling, FIREClean also happens to be relatively expensive. At $7/oz average retail, it should do everything it advertises. And, by all accounts: it does seem to.

Seemingly out of the blue, a video showing a frying pan test of FIREClean versus Crisco vegerable oil went near-viral. It was shared by the Gun Show Podcast on Facebook, along with a comparison video by Weapon Shield creator George Fennell. The first video has since been removed, but Fennell's video is still available, and includes remarks about the similarities of FIREClean with Wesson oil and PAM - based on a reading of FIREClean's Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). The Everyday No Days Off (ENDO) Blog also shared both videos, shrugging them off as typical industry drama. 

Enter Andrew Tuohy, owner of the Vuurwapen Blog and contributor at The Firearm Blog.

Andrew spent his own money to have an IR spectra analysis done on FIREClean, Crisco soybean oil, and Crisco canola oil. The results are damning; to the general reader, at least.

Editorial: Class Action Settlement Leaves Gun Maker Taurus Sitting Pretty...Or, So They Think

Editor's note: This article was submitted by a reader, and published by special request. Please refer to our disclaimer page

Not too long ago, I read an article regarding the gun maker Taurus agreeing to $30 million class action settlement over a trigger defect. In this article by Courtney Coren, two major items stand out to me...

The first major thing that concerns me is the idea that a gun maker allegedly knew they were selling a defective gun since 2007. Eight years ago? Really? It took eight years before they're forced to do anything about it. I wonder how many of these guns were sold in the eight years they knew about the defect? My guess is it's way more than the 200,000 that are allotted for in the settlement. I doubt Taurus is worried about the $30 million settlement, because - if you do the math - the company had a gross revenue of $70 million from those 200,000 pistols (average cost of $350 per pistol).

Now, stop and think for a second... What if they actually sold one million of these nine types of guns involved with the settlement? Then their gross revenue would be more likely $350 million. At that quantity, the settlement is more like a "cost of goods sold" rather than a penalty. They still made $320 million off of selling potentially lethally defective handguns.
