Mike McDonald talked about this product the other day and I wanted to provide a link to David's product so folks could check it out.

I think I'll try some myself as well.

 

Here's a review from a guy that goes by ROB01 that talks about it more in depth.

   I have used this product on a new but properly broke DPMS Barrel for an AR15 I built. It was a 24" bull barrel free floated and I was struggling to shoot sub MOA at 100 yards.

Tried alot of things with my loads and what not. I purchased the final finish and went to the range.

Recorded 5 targets before running it through my gun. averaged around 1.15 to around 1.35 Cleaned the gun ran through the whole final finish process.

Cleaned the gun recorded 5 new targets4 of which were .75 to .90  1 was .5

I was thrilled my wife shoots sub MOA with the gun now.

 

I will definatly recommend this . If you think you are having a problem.

I've tried it. It works well if you have a good barrell to start with and it just needs some polish.  For example, Savage barrels tend to respond well to this because they tend to be very accurate, but foul up quikly due to somewhat rough surfaces.  Tubb's product works very well for those.  In other words it'll make a good barrel better, but if your rifle produces 5" groups at 25 yards on a good day with match ammo, Tubb's kit won't help you much.

I am too lazy to mess with Tubb's kit too much , but I am not a match shooter anyway.  I did start using Microlon Gun Juice with good success though.

Could you elaborate on the "gun juice" a little more??

It seems to works as advertised.  Guns are easier to clean after this.  I did not track the muzzle velocity, but I suspect it increased a bit since when I was doing the treatment on a 22 and you could clearly see the POI of aim moving up for a dozen shots or so and then stabilize.

 

I do not know if it makes it more accurate, but it does seem to make cleaning a bit easier.  As for corrosion resistance, here in Southern California, it is hard to tell since it is generally pretty dry.
