I'm looking at getting some Slip2000 lube and carbon cutter.
Has anyone used it, and what do you think?
Does anyone know where to get it at a discount?

Slip2000's Carbon Cutter is absolutely amazing.
If you own an AR15, you'll more than likely love it.
After a range session, I'll throw my bolt(s) in the jar. Let them fester for 15-20min. Once they're done festering it takes nothing more than a wipe-down to get rid of the guck.
Carbon Cutter works great on choke tubes, too.
Since I live in an arid region, their lube works just like any other.

Been using both, the SLIP 2000 Gun Lubricant is a pretty good cleaner just by itself and except for the initial degunking of an old or extremely dirty gun, makes the Carbon Cutter almost unnecessary.
The bad news is it seems to evaporate and dry up much quicker than Breakfree and is a lot less effective as a lubricant once it does. I recently did a class and the action (AR15) would start slowing down by 400rds and start choking before 500rds if I did not add more lube. However, as long as you continue to add lube it will continue to run; but I've gone further using Breakfree.
Carbon Cutter is an extremely effective degreaser, better than Gun Scrubber at removing gunk and a lot easier to use in enclosed spaces and dispose of. Not to mention that it is plastic and wood friendly, so you can turn some cheap $3 tupperware from the grocery store into an instant parts washer.

Where do you buy your SLIP? Locally or net?

I've been using their carbon cutter for months now. I haven't used any other solvent on pistol barrels since getting it. Further, the mention about AR-15 parts is dead on. When this jar's done for, I'll be replacing it with another. It is that good.

I was thinking about using that carbon cutter to clean the internals of suppressors but I read a post on AR15.com yesterday where a guy said he had tried it and it didn't do anything.

I would think that it's ideal for suppressors (not that I know.) Did he let it soak? I think completely submersing it for a little while would make a world of difference. Again, I'm just talking out of my rear, since I don't have a suppressor or any carbon cutter (I have seen the CC in action, though.)

Well you gotta wipe it down after. If he was expecting the carbon fouling to just melt with no effort, that won't work. :(

How about some pressure washing? Soak it overnight and then spray out the insides with a water pik filled with CC. I don't really know, I'm just talking out of my rear.
