Hoppe’s Celebrates 120 Years of Cleaning Perfection

Hoppe’s, the No.1 name in gun care products, is celebrating its 120th anniversary this year, a major milestone for the industry’s oldest gun cleaning supply brand.

Hoppe’s began in 1903 when Frank August Hoppe mixed nine chemicals together to create the famous Hoppe’s No. 9, the world’s most effective gun cleaner. Since then, the brand has grown and expanded from gun cleaning solvents to oils, tools and other supplies, and in the process has become the most trusted name in gun care.

Some of Hoppe’s most popular products today include the quick and easy BoreSnake™, GunMedic™, and a variety of all-in-one cleaning kits. From veteran hunters and shooters to young beginners, the legendary smell of Hoppe’s has made the brand a must-have item for any gun room. Hoppe’s has prided itself over the last 120 years as the only name you need to know for taking care of your firearms.

“Hoppe’s has been at the forefront of gun care for a long time, and everyone on the team is proud to continue this legacy that began 120 years ago,” said Laurie Kokoruda, senior product manager. “We strive to honor our history with tried-and-true solutions like Hoppe’s No. 9, while also pushing ahead to develop new products that make gun care faster, easier and more effective.”
