The Story Behind “Tactical Advantage”:

SharpShoot R does business with a military contractor who will remain nameless for obvious reasons. They use the “Patch-Out” and “Wipe-Out” on their bolt-action sniper rifles. They use “Patch-Out” in the field. Primarily, because of airline restrictions not allowing aerosols to be transported in aircraft. “Wipe-Out” is used at the local ranges and posts. Well, they got a call from their big Kahuna, asking if SharpShoot R could help with a serious problem they were having with their M-4s and M-16s. These guns after a protracted firefight were not operating in full-auto mode. They would only function in semi-auto mode. This put most of the teams at risk since the full-auto mode is used for suppressing or cover-fire. He went on to tell SharpShoot R that it was taking 4 hours to get these guns, “military grade” clean. They were literally grinding out the inside of the bolt carrier with a drill and a 50-caliber brush.

The big Kahuna said, “Can you make us a cleaner that will remove copper, carbon, and powder fouling from the bore, but can also clean up the bolt carrier and the gas system?”

We went to work and 6 months later SharpShoot R announced, “Tactical Advantage”. It is used like a conventional bore cleaner straight out of the bottle. And it can be diluted with tap water to a 30% or a 40% solution and then sprayed or dripped on the bolt and the gas system. Let it stand for 10 to 20 minutes and wipe dry. Oil the part, if it is part of the bolt.

Needless to say, the military contractor is delirious with the product. He went on to tell SharpShoot R this morning that “Tactical Advantage” is keeping rifles on the firing line that would have been scrapped in the past. As of today, there have been no M-4s or M-16s in his group that have been trashed. Last year there were several hundred.

This is the only cleaner ever developed to address the problems associated with the Stoner AR platform.

Cleans the bore, bolt carrier, bolt, gas tube, etc.

Sharp Shoot R™ Precision Products® announces a great new product that is the first product dedicated solely to the problems faced by the tactical shooter. Wipe-Out “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE”™ which is to be used as a conventional non-aerosol for special use with firearms that are used in tactical applications. “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE is an answer to specific problems, where the shooter has a need for a very carbon aggressive bore cleaner that will also remove copper fouling as well as powder fouling with a minimum of effort. “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ like other “Wipe-Out ™ products is 100% brushless. “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ has dual use for cleaning tactical firearms.

  • TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ is a brushless bore cleaner.
  • TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ When mixed with water on a 50/50 ratio and sprayed on bolt carriers and bolts will dissolve carbon on contact. 

This exciting new product is easier to use and is considerably less messy and is totally odorless. It has no complicated method of application. You simply put it on a patch or a mop and swab it through the barrel or spray it on a part you wish to clean. No Muss No Fuss!

TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ has been designed to be a maximum strength product. In our testing, SharpShoot R found that “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ was capable of dissolving more fouling faster than any product currently on the market.

Methods of use: specifically for M-16s, AR-15s, M4s, MP5, HK91 HK 93’s, etc.

How to Use Tactical Advantage:

  • A conventional bore cleaner that is applied to a patch, a nylon brush, or mop and allowed to soak while it dissolves the fouling left in the barrel. SharpShoot R prefers a nylon brush which will hold more chemicals. Simply load the brush, push it in once and pull it out.
  • A Pre- Soak Patch used before using WIPE-OUT “ACCELERATOR“™ and “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE”™ will loosen powder fouling and speed the dissolving of copper and carbon. This method will maximize the removal of fouling in the shortest possible time.
  • Use “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ as a barrel swab in between relays or between shot strings to remove powder fouling and begin the job of dissolving carbon and copper. This method is a quick solution that will ensure the cleaning job you do when you have more time will be positive and complete. Many shooters need a product that will clean in the shortest time possible because they have severe time constraints. The body of competitive shooters falls into this group because they all have minimal amounts of time to clean their firearms between relays. Additionally, during the break-in of a barrel, it is normal to clean the barrel every few shots for at least the first 100 to 150 rounds. Or you may be a high-volume shooter, who shoots a large number of rounds before being forced to clean due to the degradation of accuracy. In these particular situations, a faster method of cleaning is necessary.
  • Mix “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ in a 50/50 ratio and place in a spray bottle. Spray dirty parts fouled with powder residue and carbon. “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™will remove this fouling on contact. (Use this same method for muzzle brakes and suppressors)

With the breach open, apply into the barrel by means of a patch or nylon brush that has been wetted with the solution. Place the firearm down horizontally on the bench. Wait for 15 to 20 minutes. Put a clean cotton patch on a good jag and push through the bore. The use of a bore brush to scrub is not necessary, ever. Simple and easy with no complications.

While this product has been designed to be totally brushless, admittedly there are those who still wish to use a brush. If the user will take two strokes through the bore with a nylon brush “TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ will produce a luxuriously thick lather. Allow it to set as per original instructions for faster results.

TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ is meant to be used by itself as a cleaner, or in combination with ACCELERATOR™.

TACTICAL ADVANTAGE” ™ is as safe to use as WIPE-OUT™ and in no manner compromises the safe use of either product.
