Kroil?

A few years ago (I should have asked this much earleir), I ran out of Kroil and ordered another can from MidwayUSA (I think). What came in the post was not labled exactly the same. The new can was labled: "Kano Microil Engneered Instrument Oil". My question is; did they send the wrong thing, or is it just "Kroil" labled a bit different?

"New" can, Left...Old can Right.
Whoops! The plot thickens...I just discovered that the new can's lable is covering a lable that is the same as the old can of Kroil. But, the question remains; is it Kroil or does Kano make some other oil that I got in its place?

Looking at their website it looks like they sent the wrong thing. The Microil is in the industrial lubricate section.

It does say you can use it on guns.

The unfortunate things is that I did not want just another lubricating oil, I wanted to use it on lead fouling, which Kroil is supposed to get under and make it easy to remove.
