AR-15 rifles are some of the most popular firearms in America, and Americans are using them much differently than wood-stocked, bolt-action brethren of yesteryear. Instead of firing a few dozen rounds at the range and in the field, Americans are running their ARs hard and hot. High-performance rifles need a different kind of cleaner, and that's the aim of the new Black line from Hoppe's.

The Hoppe's Black High Performance Gun Care line features gun cleaner, precision oil, copper cleaner, grease and lubricating cloth all designed specifically for the exploding market of black rifles, from AR-platform guns to long-range precision rifles to competition pistols.

The company's high-performance Gun Cleaner is safe for use in any firearm barrel and is specifically designed to remove large amounts of carbon from the interior of high-round-count firearms. The cleaner is available in 2.5-ounce and a 6-ounce containers, which retail for $6.45 and $9.45, respectively.

The cleaner, along with the other elements of the new product line, is designed to withstand extreme conditions and temperatures ranging from -65 degrees to 540 degrees Fahrenheit.

The suggested retail price for the other products in the Hoppe's Black line ranges from $6.45 for 2 ounces of lubricant to $10.95 for the company's 12-cc grease syringe.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
