Thread: Cleaning and lubercating agents

  1. Cleaning and lubercating agents

    Anyone use mil-comm stuff? How well does it work? I am looking for something to use to clean my Glock 26 and Sig 238 with and ran across this stuff but would like to hear from someone the has used it.

    Any other high quality stuff that anyone can recommend? Cost does not really matter to me since I do not get to go shooting as often as I would like so I would not be using it much. I just want to use the "best" stuff I can find on my weapons. Thanks!

    I've never used the mil-comm stuff, can't help you there. What I use is either Break-Free or Rem Oil for lubrication, and Hoppes #9 nitro solvent and bore snake for cleaning. I lubricate my carry gun once a month and my safe queens every six months. My guns are Nickle, stainless, and brass, and all function flawlessly and are in mint condition. You can always use a good quality past wax(Johnson) on the exterior, protects better than oil.

    Ringo & I use exactly the same lubes/solvent. I am not big on bore snakes though. I also drag my safe queens out ever 6-8mo to fondle/re-lube.
    Never argue with an idiot. First they drag you down to their level then they beat you with experience!

    There was an article that someone posted on the site (I did a search, but couldn't find the thread). I referenced a test someone did with salt water and nails to test the protection of products. Her is the link to the article The Gun Zone
    You can look to see if the product you mentioned was part of the test or not. IF it was not, the article tells you how to run your own test.

    The #2 choice was Break Free CLP (Cleaning, Lubricant, Protection) and is available at most stores.
    The #1 choice was Eezox which is harder to find and basically needed to be ordered on line unless you were lucky enough to have a store close to you (My closest store was 80 miles away). The difference was negligible. So if rust prevention is one of your most important concerns, then CLP is a good choice and it does three jobs in one.

  6. I have been using the CLP since I have had my Glock about 2 years ago. No issues with it so maybe I should'nt try and fix something that is not broke lol. I am going to check out that Hoppes stuff though. Thanks for the info everyone!

    I use the same lubes/solvent. I carry a cheap rod in the truck when hunting. I found that boresnakes are of little use clearing a barrel obstruction, (snow mud). I use quality rods for cleaning at home Boresnakes are great at the range if space is limited.
    Regarding the safe queens, I have a de-humidfy rod in the safe. There are no safe queens, per say, if I don't use it, I sell it. I clean and lube each one after use. After handling, i wipe down with oiled rag.

    I use the bore snake only after shooting .38spls. in my .357 rifle & revolvers as an extra measure to remove the ridges built up from shooting the shorter round. So true where you mention "fondle"/re-lube, kind of like releasing of withdrawal symptoms.

    CLP is good stuff. I use it. I have been wanting to check out the Eezox but as yet have not tried it.

    Hoppe's and Rem Oil for most cleaning and lubricating. On the rare occasion I may use Flitz which is a cleaner protectant. I only use Flitz on external areas and very sparingly.

  11. I'm not married to one lube or cleaner. Depending on what I'm cleaning and what I've been shooting (like BP, corrosive primers, ...) I use anything from a 10 to 1 mixture of Ballastol and hot water to GI bore cleaner to Hoppe's #9. For lubrication I use Outter's Gunslick (the paste in the little squeeze tube I like using it on slide rails), Rem Oil, Breakfree, Ballastol and even TC Bore Butter on occasion.
