Jack will be missed. He was one of the good guys. His son Danny(JD) is also a good guy and plans on carrying on the Crown Saver Tradition. I could not tell you how long the Crown Saver has dominated the Airgun Barrel Cleaning Tool Market but it has been decades and it sells all over the world to the best shooters.
