Arms Preservation Inc. Firearm & Ammunition Storage Bags utilize a combination of Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) chemistry and carefully chosen barrier packaging materials to prevent the corrosion of firearms, firearm parts, and ammunition during storage for 5 years or more depending on use. A.P.I. anti-corrosion storage bags are based on military tested and approved designs which are reusable and safe for all metals, finishes, optics, stocks, ammo, primers, and electronics since the bags leave no residues behind and do not require the use of any messy oils or greases. A.P.I. anti-corrosion storage bags have a wide range of applications which can include storing hunting firearms during off seasons (with scopes mounted), safely storing guns while away on deployment, to preserve priceless family heirlooms, storing guns that are rarely used (safe queens), or if storing firearms and ammo in humid, damp, or coastal environments.

How Arms Preservation Inc. Anti-Corrosion Storage Bags Work
The VCI impregnated internal layer is where the anti-corrosive properties of the A.P.I. storage bags are emitted from. The presence of metal draws the VCI molecules out of the interior layer which are then attracted to the interior and exterior metal surfaces of your firearm. These VCI molecules coat all metal surfaces with a one molecule thick layer that stops corrosion before it can begin. This one molecule thick layer of VCI chemistry easily dissipates off of the firearm with no cleaning necessary once the gun is removed from the bag and because of this, the firearm is ready for immediate use.
The exterior barrier layer of the A.P.I. Gun Bags performs two tasks; it blocks harmful corrosion causing elements from entering the bag by passing through the various materials while also securing the corrosion inhibiting VCI chemistry inside the bag. This allows the bag to protect your firearms and ammunition for longer than any other VCI product on the market.
The limiting factor on how long an A.P.I. Gun Bag will provide anti-corrosion protection depends on how long the bag is able to keep the VCI chemistry locked in. Because our chosen barrier layer does not let any VCI chemistry permeate it, the only way for the chemistry to escape is when the bag is opened and closed. Bags that are opened and closed several times throughout a year will provide protection for approximately 5 years. Bags that are not opened frequently can maintain their protective qualities for many years beyond that.
