    With cleaners like CLP, do i need oil?

    They clean and lubricate, so do i need another product for oiling. It seems like everyone use one product for cleaning and a separate product for oil.

    If your firearms are lubricated enough w/CLP, then you don't need more lubricant.

    If you get failures due to lack of lubrication, then you will probably need a supplemental oil. Since you did not mention if you are having any problems, it would be difficult to answer your question.

    The product that I use to clean my firearms (G96) is like CLP. It's supposed to be a cleaner, lubricant and protectant as well, but I still wipe off the G96 and use a supplemental lube. Hope that helps.

    I use Weaponshield CLP and that's enough really. The only thing I do differently is actually clean with gun scrubber and spray the loose gunk out. Then use Weaponshield on anything that needs to be buffed/rubbed off. Then I apply Weaponshield to the lubrication points and barrel. Then I wipe excess stuff off the rails after I rack the slide a few times to work it in.

    This is what I do with every gun I own.

    Breakfree CLP is as good as any other oil on the market,you might need different solvents though,for the tough stuff in the barrel.

    I use just a little bit of Tuff-Glide on the rails, but otherwise, let the CLP do its thing.

    If you use only one product, be sure to thoroughly clean the firearm, dry it completely, and then lube it in a separate step with that product. I prefer two use separate, speciality products. I do not want anything that has a built-in lube remaining on the metal with possible powder, dirt, lead, etc.

    I use a product that cleans the firearm right down to the metal. Right now that is Hoppes Elite. It works very well. Once I have a clean, dry firearm, I lube it.

    I generally have used a little oil as a lubricant, but I have been trying out a product called EEZOX. It goes on wet but protects and lubes dry. It seems to work just fine in lubing semi-auto slides. It is excellent for protecting firearms that are in frequent use, seldom used, or in storage. I think there are now several other similar products available.

    So my own recommendation is two, speciality products, each doing what it does best.
