      Anybody use C.L.P to clean their guns

      Bought this stuff yesterday and found it lubes great, but does this clean?

      Anybody like CLP? Recommend a better cleaner if you use something different... ive been using cleaner from my dad and grandfather who also shoot and have guns

      I have some in a tiny bottle in my Otis Kit that I take into the field and it works okay to get carbon out but doesn't seem to touch copper. I use Kroil mostly on all my firearms.

      I use Break Free CLP on all my guns. It's definitely not the best cleaner, or the best lubricant, or the best preservative; but it DOES seem to be the best compromise of all three. If you have a very specific cleaning job, and it's a difficult job like copper or rust removal, then a more specialized product is probably a better choice for that job. But 99% of the time, CLP works just fine.

      I use it on all my guns also and have been for over 20 years.
      DJ Niner is right on the money---everything he said about Break Free CLP has been my experience too.

      lol! I just started to use CLP again - the first time for the last twenty years. I also still use Hoppes #9 and Rem Oil.

      I have been using CLP on all kinds of firearms for 30 years. It works fine for general use, when used regularly.

      So far Kroil has worked good for me with a followup of 3in1 machine oil.

      Please see the thread below with a Poll showing CLP as a very popular cleaner/protectant/lubricant:
      Best Commercially Available Liquid Gun Lubricant
      I personally find CLP a great cleaner/protectant, but not the best lubricant. I always lightly apply a lubricant after cleaning and blow-drying with CLP. My favorites right now are Militec-1 and Slipstream.
