One Stop Cleaning with Breakfree CLP

I was at the Las Vegas GSSF match and talked to the Glock Armorer and they clean Glocks using only Breakfree CLP in the oil form (no-aerosol). Cleans, Lubricates and Protects. What do you guys think of that? Can I really get rid of my Hoppes and my Rem Oil and my Gunzilla?

Only if you're not very picky about a clean gun.

Breakfree does have some cleaning properties but it's mainly a light-duty lubricant & rust inhibitor. It won't dissolve crud like a solvent will.

CLP is great for "wet" guns like m4's and 1911's. It is a very inefficient solo solution for "dry" guns like glocks.

great thing about gun cleaning is everyone is always wrong according to someone else. Do it the way you feel comfortable and don't let others convince you you are doing it wrong. if you want to try it out then so be it but don't throw away you other supplies just because someone else told you you were doing it wrong. I use Winchester powder blaster solvent and rem oil and I like the way my guns come out but according to someone else I am ruining my guns.

I use it all the time. It is a good compromise between a pure solvent and an oil. For deep cleaning break out the solvents and coper fouling removers. One of my Glocks has had over 5000 rounds with nothing but CLP and no failures, excessive wear or excessive fouling. BTW it had over 100,000 rounds fired by a police academy before I bought it. The log book showed they used CLP.

CLP and Isoprophyl 91% Alcohol are all I use on my guns. I'll put a drop of Mobil 1 oil on the required parts/areas.

I have been using CLP since the 70's, if I have an extra dirty bore I will break out the Hoppes but that is rare.

The over-the-counter BreakFree is a different formula than the mil-spec stuff.

From the Sig Forum:

Quote:
Milspec BreakFree CLP, known as their D-5 formula, contains 20% solvent by weight while their civilian version ('E-formula') contains 12% solvent by weight.

Then again, there's the US milspec Royco CLP that you might find at gun shows. It's ingredients are the same, however it contains 40% solvent.

I say, take care of your weapons as best you can....even if it takes 10 steps to do it right. The military guys may have a better spec of BreakFree to clean their weapons with...and besides that, the military guys aint paying for prematurely worn out or damaged weapons, WE ARE!!!!!....Your carry weapon is too important to take any chances with, it could save your life. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!!!!!!

When I learned that CLP was being used by the US Military, that was good enough for me. If their firearms are clean, lubed, and ready to go, what more can you ask?

I've been on board about 10 years with CLP.

From the very first I have used Hoppe's #9 solvent and Hoppe's Gun Oil or Rem Oil on all my Glocks. But on my AR-15 and all my revolvers I use the Break Free CLP, I run my AR wet and I have NO problem with keeping it clean and runnin' smooth.

Not sure it would clean a leaded bore very well, but it might.

Use "over-the-counter" break free clp here. Has been working for me. The only reason why it would be "wet" is if you apply too much. I saturate a q-tip and apply to the needed areas of lube. This keeps everything nice and neat.

BreakFree CLP is all I use, and all I have used for years. Of course, to be fair, and I know I'm about to be flamed and hated for this, but truthfully I've never bought a single drop. You fine folks buy it for me, and a little here and a little there manages to make it off the range when we go out..... My mentality has always been if it's good enough for military, it's good enough for me. That doesn't hold true for all things military, but I accept it for CLP.

I have always used only CLP after my Army days. However, I'm trying some Wilson Combat white lithium grease on the rails (especially for the AA kit) at present.

There have previously been posts by proponent of M-Pro 7 which I've never used, and today Dvor, the new special deals website division of OpticsPlanet sent out a notice of special deals on all their cleaning stuff. If interested, you can see their deals only after signing up to receive their announcements: http://www.dvor.com/s/5ofp5h.html

I prefer Slip 2000, same idea. However, for any firearm, it's really not so much a matter of what lube you use but rather how you use it. Although I find remoil to be at the bottom of the barrel, way too thin for my liking.
