    Hello,
    Just got a bottle of FP-10 CLP, and I noticed a difference between that and Breakfree CLP almost immediatly: it does not seem to spread as far.

    I am not saying that this a bad thing, it almost seems to be soaking IN to the metal, which could be a very good thing, but it does seem noticeably different.

    I was testing this out on an 870 Express, which has a rather rough finish, so I thought that was the cause, but I saw the same thing on a polished rifle receiver.

    Any similar experiences out there? As I said, this may not be a problem, and FP-10 seems to do a wonderful job lubricating, but I would like to know what others have seen.

    Regards,
    Hammerhead

    IMO, the FP 10 is a better product. It does not seperate like breakfree. It cleans and lubes better as well.

    I, too, am a believer in FP10...

    BreakFree is Ok but, it does gum up after awhile... And yes, I am a overoiler. I over oil my tools, machinery, and my guns. Of course, only on stocks that are completely sealed... I love it when someone picks a rifle off the rack and gets oil on their clean hands! HA!

    I wouldn't worry about the coverage. Get a larger bottle. Surface preparation is a key factor. Try it on some real parkerizing- Sluuurp!

    Also, I like the smell. Smells like gunsmithing...

    I love to watch FP-10 creep all over what you put it on.

    Try this:

    Completely clean a fairly large piece of metal, like an semiauto pistol barrel. Use alcohol to make sure you get all the oil off. Then put a drop of FP-10 anywhere on it. Leave it for many hours. It will have migrated to all over the barrel, including the bore!

    It's really amazing stuff! :neener:
