    Always seeing discussions on lubrication and rust prevention. Some believe what they use is the best in the history of the world.

    A scientific test was done on many of our favorite products...they may not be your favorite after reading the test results.:D

    I prefer this one. I trust Brownells to know what they are doing. <http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/lid=10700/guntechdetail/Gun_Cleaning_Clinic__Knowing_the_Limits_of_Rust_Preventatives>

    Yes they tested Breakfree lp which in all the test I have seen is not what we are looking for. Totally different animal/test results with Breakfree Clp verses just the Lp.

    Since I don't use either I never paid attention to how Breakfree lp or clp fared in the test. Rust prevention and lubrication has been WAY over thought. It doesn't take any super-duper chemical with "for guns" in the name to keep firearms rust free and working smoothly.

    I'm glad to see that BreakFree CLP did very well. I have used it for quite some time mostly because I like the all in one product approach. The RemOil did good which I like as I find those single use foil packs with a towlett of it to be very hand.

    After many years in the firearms industry, I found myself with a huge pile of various cleaners, oils, rust prevention products etc. By simple chance I was given quite a few large and small bottles of Breakfree CLP and had used it on my guns for the last decade or so---and the bottom line? NO RUST!! What more can I say?

    And in all the years I have used hoppe's #9 I have NEVER seen any rust on any of my firearms...I Call BS to the tests. Use what you prefer, but I will still use Hoppe's with confidence.

    Bushmaster,perhaps you missed this on the Brownell's test. "Pick What's Right For Your Needs
    As shown, the properties and limitations of different rust preventives vary dramatically. This allows gun owners to select products that best fit their maintenance style and demands, whether indoors or out in the field. Obviously, storage in a dehumidified gun safe does not present the same challenges as a pack hunt for black tail along the Pacific Coast. Keep this in mind when selecting the best rust preventive for your application. And, be open to switching between products as your firearms change environments."
    Obviously Hoppe's #9 fills your specific needs. That hardly makes the tests BS.

    I have used Breakfree clp for 35 years and kroil only as a product to loosen copper or clean parts. Kroil is a great penetrating oil.

    Good grief don't put WD-40 in a firearm for lube.

    I have used remoil and found it to be too thin, its tends to migrate too easily.

    For protection from rust darn near anything will work, but cleaning and lubing done properly require totally different products.

    Don't start that stuff. I've used it(WD-40) for decades. I also use Rem-oil with good results.
    Most anything makes a good cleaner. WD-40,Brakekleen,lighter fluid but the very best is hot,soapy water. As for lube,again most anything works even vegetable oil(some wont last as long though).

    Different needs in different places. The military has different lube polices in different climates. A person who lives in the SW has a very different lube problem than someone in the north or the south. Arizona really doesn't really worry too much about rust but a lot lube that picks up sand is a problem, a pretty dry weapon is a good idea. Lube thickens in extreme cold. A guy in Florida is very concerned with rust. CLP is a good product, I never liked it but I have to admit its mostly for aesthetic reasons.

    I would think the guys in a dry dusty climate would love Breakfree Clp because after it dries it leaves a thin coat of PTFE or Teflon. Just asking? Guns appear dry but in actuality they are running on a microscopic layer of PTFE. Just asking; would be good to hear from someone who uses The Breakfree Clp in a dry dusty climate. I don't know for I live pretty much in a swamp.

    CLP is the bomb.

    I shoot 10/22s a lot, and never clean them. Well, maybe once every year or two. When I do clean them, the last step is to coat everything with a thick layer of CLP and let it sit for a bit, then wipe all the parts absolutely dry. They will run for years, and thousands of rounds, without doing anything other than load them. Blue barrels do get a periodic wipedown to keep the rust protection going, but stainless guns are on their own. The boltface and such develop a thin coating of soot, but there is no buildup, and the gun just shoots.

    I typically don't want to pour water into my firearm, but to each his or her own. I guess thats why they make new firearms.

    It's funny how some people think water contact is going to instantly turn their gun into a rustbucket. Wonder if they hold a cute little miniature umbrella over their pistols when it rains? :)

    Hot water is used in the bluing process and does absolutely no harm to the metal. The BARE metal is immersed in soapy water heated to 180 degrees,then placed in BOILING clean water, Then placed into the bluing solution(typically) containing 4-6 gallons of water heated to 295 degrees. I rinse the parts with a water hose. Then place into clear boiling water and then into heated stop bath solution also containing water. I ALWAYS spray the still hot parts liberally with WD-40 and buff with 0000 steel wool. WATER does no harm to firearms. It is the lack of attention that causes the problem.

    Many people believe rubbing an egg on their family members will cure a curse.

    Doesn't make it true.
