    Breakfree CLP

    Picked up another bottle yesterday because I was almost out. Anyone else use this stuff?

    I used to use gun scrubber and Rem Oil in the 1990s. Some reports of gun scribber messing up the Bruniton finish on Berettas stopped me. And, the RemOil always made me light headed if I used it inside (I always used the gun scribber outside).

    The Breakfree for everything works well, and the smell doesn't bother me inside.

    I have always been a fan of Break Free. I know it maintains its viscosity even under extremely cold temperatures, which is an asset if you hunt in Colorado or Alaska. Apparently, the military uses it as well.

    Gun Scrubber now has a product designed for use in polymer framed guns. Apparently the old stuff could hurt the plastic. I didn't know this, and I used the heck out of it. Still do.

    I've got a giant bottle of Hoppes for the barrels as well. It stinks to high heaven, and I get threatened with divorce every time I use it.

    I use CLP and Gun Butter for lube and Shooters Choice and Hoppe#9 for cleaning. I shoot mostly lead and couple of strokes with the SC gets about 95% of it out. I finally got my loads to where I don't have a lot of lead.

    I use remoil for my metal guns. FNH recomends breakfree CLP for my 5 7, because of the polymer.

    I use Breakfree for light lube and rust prevention. In my own testing Breakfree has been an excellent rust preventative. For cleaning I prefer a solvent like Hoppes and for high pressure points I use a grease.

    I don't think I have the link anymore, but a year ago, I read some info on a site - a guy did a test to see which oils had the best rust prevention. I think he tried 10-15 different ones. Breakfree was like the 2nd best. So, yea, it is a good rust preventative.

    I use the spray-on Breakfree on the slide and frame to clean them. I use Hoppes for cleaning the bore and lube with Militec. Sooner or later I'm going to try copper cutter on the bore.

    It does seem as though Break Free dries up pretty quickly. Does anyone else share this impression?

    Funny you should mention that - in my AR I typically use it, but the last time I went out I ended up using some Gunslick instead for lube - seemed to stay wet better..

    I used to use Break Free for everything.

    Now I just use it for general cleaning. For bores I like Shooter's Choice MC-7; if really fouled Kroil and JB paste. I use FP-10 or Corrosion X for lube

    I found that Rem OIl dried up just as fast.

    Once a month, I take a toothbrush and reoil the frame rails on all my pistols just to make sure some stays on there. But I've done that no matter what oil I used.

    I am not trying to push any brand of Lube, but I think you owe it to yourself to try a small can of Eezox. I have used a lot of Lubercants and this is the best thing I have found. Might now work for you, but I use it about once a month in the summer and about every three months in the winter on my CCW and it looks brand new. Spray or wipe it on and let it dry. No oil to collect dust or dirt and smells good. Its all I use now. I use a Bore Solvent if I need to get copper or led out of the bore and then coat with Eezox.

    I'm out gun scrubber and have a can of the breakfree that's been sitting for some time. I'll give it a try with an open mind. We sometimes get set in our ways which closes doors.

    Slide-Glide Lite....

    I have used Break Free & Hoppes # 9 & occasionally Gun scrubber for quite a while. I still do my major cleaning with those products. Recently I bought a jar of Slide-Glide Lite from the Brian Enos web site. Seems to work very nicely when applied to the slide guides. It also seems to stay where you apply it for a very long time.

    One thing I look for in a lube is, is it readily available. Breakfree can be had most anywhere. I know one old feller's been using 3in1 on his guns for 60 years and still shooting them.

    Conoco Hydrocracked Base Oil??

    A neighbor of mine works for Conoco. He gave several sample bottles of Hydrocracked Base Oil. He said it would be great for guns or about anything else that required oiling. Do any of you know anything about this stuff?
