In 2005 GI Industries were asked by Army Research Laboratory and Aberdeen Proving ground to manufacturer & introduce a one man operation, easy to use, Solvent-less Bore Cleaning System, for the US Abrams Tank M1 & M2. USA National Stock Number: 101 501 565 0243.

Our Barrel & Bore Cleaning systems expertise are built on decades of high-quality manufacturing, innovative design and advanced research and development capabilities to provide our customers with the “Best Value” combat barrel cleaning solutions available today.

Most of the current barrel cleaning systems available today, (Traditional Automated Cleaning Systems) These systems require the use of High Priced Solvents, plus ongoing yearly lubrication orders.

Other systems use Sensitive Electronics, that require careful storage, maintenance and operator use. Sensitive Electronics are not soldier proof and spare parts are expensive.

Using a GI Barrel & Bore System, You can now efficiently clean any Barrel or Bore from copper and powder residues without removing it from the platform, which saves both time and money.

GI Industries are the Leading Barrel & Bore Cleaning company in this New  Eco & Green Technology. Safe for the operator, Good for the environment and Cost Effective for the end user.

GI Official Testing & Evaluation
Weapons and Materials Research Directorate, Army Research Laboratory (ARL)

Solventless Bore Cleaning System for the M256 Tank Cannon Carried out by the Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground,

This report describes a new solventless bore cleaning technique by GI Industries, which uses silicon-carbide grit impregnated on a nylon bristle brush to clean the bore in roughly 1/3 the time, with half the personnel, using less expendables, at 1/4 the cost.

Testing Shows: That the new cleaning method does not damage the chrome plating nor the metal substrate where chrome is missing as a result of firing-induced damage.

Military Clearance: The US Army Granted GI Industries official military approval Sept 2006
Official Supplier: General Dynamics

GI Bore Cleaning System has undergone the most thorough testing and evaluation process and passed with flying colours. Why would you trust anything else !

An Abrams Tank M1A2 costs around US$8.92 Million. Why would you use anything untested, to clean the most important part; The Barrel !
