Simply put, Barrelguardtm is the easiest and most effective way to prevent rust in your gun. Required by the U.S. Military for the manufacturing and storage of small arms since 1952, Barrelguardtm is now available for non-military use!
"The first time I ran into your bore tubes was in 1962. It was at Fort Devens, Mass. A 2 1/2 ton truck pulled up with a load of long cardboard boxes. We were told these were our rifles for basic training. I opened up my "issued" box. Inside a silver looking sleeve was a brand new M1 Springfield rifle with a Barrelguard tube in the bore. The M1 was absolutely dry. No cosmoline. No oil. Just that tube. I thought it was magic then and I still think it's magic today.
It's just a great product and the perfect solution to firearms protection in the civilian arena.
Barrelguard is the FUTURE of firearm corrosion protection"

redefined corrosion inhibitor packaging for the
firearms industry, providing it with an alternative
to conventional corrosion preventatives such as
cosmoline, grease, oil, preservatives, desiccants
and waxed or barrier papers.
Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) packaging
continues to protect metals worldwide!
is Barrelguard VCI?
VCI stands for Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor. Barrelguard VCI Bore Tubes are treated with specially engineered chemicals which safely prevent corrosion on protected metals without the need for messy, expensive protective coatings, or less effective methods such as desiccants or untreated barrier papers.
