Miracle Cleaner Article MB 1992 Not Such a Miracle After All

Cheap and easier is never better. #blackpowderbill
I made some of this up after this article came to me with a CVA Hunter-Hawken I had won. About a year later while shooting on the range, in a match a bit of this cleaner mixed with BP goo splashed on my prescription safety glasses. As I wiped the spots off I noticed it had removed the anti glare/scratch finish off the lens!

I stopped using this Miracle that day and went back to water and a bit of soap. Soon after that I also stopped using those Chap stick scented Miracle greased patches in competition.
   Hope you can read these pages!

Now if you want I can sell you a bottle of Scented Chap-Stick. Who am I to stop progress.
