    Default Cold Weather & Cleaning Solution

    I just realized that all my gun cleaning stuff is out in my garage, which isn't heated and hardly insulated. Will the cold freeze or damage any of my cleaning solution/gun oil?

    Does it go all wompyjawed on the guns you use it with when they are out in the cold for extended periods of time?

    Good question! I haven't used the stuff since the cold weather hit, so I'm not sure...

    Oil that's been opened may get water contamination due to moisture in the air, (think open bottle of brake fluid, which is an oil itself), but the solvents would likey be fine if they don't/can't freeze.

    I'd be more concerend about thickening/gumming up when too cold, as they're gonna do that even easier in your guns out in the weather due to the lower volume on the gun compared to in a bottle, and that can be a bad, bad thing depending on situation.

    Maybe I'll gather them up and bring them instead then, just to be safe. Thanks!
