I would check your local stores first before going. The above mentioned stores in Brandon, Mb all carry it.

Canadian Tire and Home Depot also carry it in Canada. Also Walmart. If you know any millwrights or heavy duty mechanics, I'm betting they have some.

The stuff on amazon must be made of unobtainium, very scarce and rare. LOL


Very rare. I checked yesterday and they were out of stock.


After not finding it at Home Depot or Ace Hardware on Sunday, I ordered an 8 oz can from Amazon for $14.08. Supposed to arrive on Thursday ! I might have had more luck at an auto parts store !!!

Kroil is available in UK gun shops, but very expensive.

One example :

A benchrest shooter told me about Kroil over 15 years ago.  At that time, he was using a powder solvent, then Sweets 7.62, then Kroil (drying out the bore with patches before going to the next product).  

I’m going to inspect the bore for the next few cleaning sessions.  I wonder if that Kroil will clean out the powder and copper fouling.  What ever that dark patchy stuff was in the bore that Hoppes and Boretech Eliminator didn’t remove, the Kroil did.

Yes. I stand corrected. It is just a penetrating oil.

Kroil has been in Canada since the early 2000's. The fertilizer plant I worked at in Canada since '81 (US owned by JR Simplot from '67 until Koch bought us in 2007) required annual turnarounds for refurbishing, mandated by the government regulations on boilers and pressure vessels. Koch had also purchased fertilizer plants in Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma at the same time. I was seconded to run the night shifts for these turnarounds in the US. Usually two months long. Long story short (too late, I know) my American friends had never heard of this product. Once they aquired it, they loved it! (Weirdest meal I ever ate in Oklahoma? Alot of the contractors were from Louisiana. They would haul their travel trailers up and make a community in the local trailer park. Anything that moved was fair game. Robin, squirrel (and the heads) and a turtle (one of the c#%n asses caught in a near by pond) made into a gumbo. I miss those days...
