IGG’s proprietary HSM technology penetrates, seeks out and dramatically reduces points of friction.

When IGG is applied to areas of metal contact, the result is greater surface hardness and smoothness, reduced heat generation, enhanced velocity and more consistent shooting.

“We are very happy to have partnered with one of the industry’s leading marksmen as a Gold Level Sponsor for the 2013 / 2014 season,” remarked Aaron Iwanciw, CEO of Italian Gun Grease. “Max is a perfect fit with the values of our company and we look forward to what we can accomplish together in the next year.”

“I have searched for a lubricant and cleaner that fits my needs as a pro shooter for years, and I’ve finally found what I’ve been looking for in Italian Gun Grease. IGG not only makes cleaning my firearms easier, but its earth friendly products, which are made in the USA, provide a safe way of getting it done quickly,” commented Michel.

He continued, “Shooting firearms as quickly as I do, I need a lubricant that will last after several hundred rounds and at high temperatures. Most shooters opt for a thicker lubricant to accomplish this but find their guns gumming up later. IGG has an unbelievably thin lubricant that will last during my intense training sessions and competitions!”
