What's your guys' favorite cleaner/lubricant/preservative?
need nothin else
>>60200532My CLP is still in the little bottles that the Army issued me. Every now and then I like to open up my cleaning kit and take a whiff..sweet memories. Also its all I use because I have so much if it leftover that I dont see the sense in buying anything else.
>>60200559Should use bacon grease or unsalted lard bro. Smells great
>>60200532cleaner: boretechit's nice because it isn't solvent based, it's detergent based. works great on copper fouling and carbon gunk. lubricant:corrosionX, works great and I use it on other shit like tools and exterior fittings.
>>60200577until it goes rancid that is
>>60200532i clean with kerosene and lube with motor oil
Does break cleaner work to get all the really tough spots and really small sensitive mechanical parts? I want to be able to do deep cleans without having to disassemble microscopic part assemblies.
>>60200747get an ultrasonic cleaner
>>60200532You've already posted it, fren.
Soap and water
I was excited about coomlube but I realized that I really can't be asked to clean, wipe out the cleaning chemical, and then apply the lube. Now I just use BreakFree CLP because that's what lubeanon said was the best clp.
>>60200532ballistol. it works really well for lever actions. I’ll use boretech carbon eliminator if I’ve done a heavy day of shooting
>>60200532>cleanerFPNI Hoppes or Kerosine, basically same thing.>>60200532>lubricantOlive Oil, non carcinogenic and you can also use it for cooking. Crisco and bar-soap for grease. >>60200532>preservativeRegular maintenance as needed. See above.
>>60200747yes but you should know it will strip literally every drop of oil from a gun and should not come in contact with oil-finished stocks. make sure you get non-chlorinated cleaner as it is believed chlorinated cleaners can weaken steel. gun scrubber is basically chlorinated brake cleaner
>>60201532>>60201552Great for horses, too.
>>60201385Bf clp is the lazy man's choice. If there's a problem? Just add more. Cleaning? Just add more. Some quick lube at the range? Just add more.
>>60200532I do basic cleaning and lubing with slip 2k oil.When something really needs cleaning I use mpro7 gun cleaner solvent then lube with slip 2k.I always spray ballistol down the barrel.It's non-toxic or bust for me since I love to finger my guns.
>>60201584>repels mosquitos and ticksI’m curious. can anyone confirm?
>>60200532Exactly the one you posted, along with the spray can version for some stuff. I've been trying the Lucas extreme duty stuff for sliding areas though and it seems to work well, my pump shotgun in particular feels smoother with it than just CLP.
>>60201652No harm in trying, infact i think i may have to try drinking some.
>>60201792I remember reading some kid drank the regular ballistol, I think it was 2 TBsp or 2 oz I don’t remember but they were perfectly fine
>>60201960I recall an anecdote from an anon in the army, who knew someone who ate a tostitos scoop chip full of regular clp. died in hospital after ?weeks? of agony.Cleary ballistol is the superior beverage.
>>60201597This is me 100% of the time and it's 100% true. I douse whatever I'm safequeening then put it in a sock. I douse whatever I am cleaning for recreation and I microfiber towel it. CLP is OP
>>60200532I’ve only ever used CLP, I spray it on pretty heavy and let it work it’s magic, then wipe off with a rag/ clean tighter spaces with a Q-tip, then spray a lil more as a protective coat. IDK it works on my firearms.
>>60201792Me and several of my friends have all drank ballistol and once we even fried burgers with it. The burgers smelled amazing but tasted like soap.
Pee in it
>>60202150I heard stories about a guy who tried jerking off with clp as lube and it was burning his dick flesh..clpeepee
>>60202586>>60202941I successfully found said first-hand anecdote, therefore it is 100% true and valid.Though, it says years of hospice, not weeks of agony.
I like #9 for a solvent, Ballistol for general purpose lube/coating, and Froglube as cosmoline
Some anon did a science experiment a while ago, though i have no idea what the conditions were
>>60203145BreakFree looking good there.Theres some tests done on jewtube too ofc.Like this one showing breakfree doing very poorly for corrosion.Judging just by this chart would make it seem the only reason to pick breakfree would be that it has the best physical wear protection out of any clp that can pass the freeze test.
>>60203080wonder what it did to him
>>60200559Mix it with motoroil and you're GTG. Doesn't do much for protecting from rust though.
>>60203186I like project farm but I don’t think this was a good comparison for what the average gun experiences. I finally settled on ballistol because it doesn’t migrate inside my rifle. also a big problem with the other “wipe off” corrosion tests. I stuck with ballistol because I spray it on and it self levels and evaporates into a thin grease. I have a knife I sprayed with ballistol and hung upside down and there was still a thin layer of grease on the entire blade after 3 months. I was using hoppes but after a couple of weeks it looked like you hadn’t even oiled it. I don’t think there’s a perfect oil for any one gun they all have different requirements depending on how often and how much you shoot them at one time as well as the type of action I think
>>60203204> forbidden srirachaI figured I'd try this. After several months of storage my BCG was still covered in it. CLP would have run off by then. I haven't seen any rust, but I keep my stuff in a safe with Evadry packs.
>>60203145>>60203186Who relies on fancy lube to prevent rust? We've had corrosion resistant finishes for hundreds of years now. If a light oil can't do the job then you shouldn't be taking that gun into that environment anyways. But, I guess this could be useful in some SHTF/LARP scenarios
I've been trying some food-grade super lube machine oil & lubricant. Functions well and doesn't smoke but seems to evaporate in storage. More testing needed.
>>60203466Is that, all pitting?Anyways; i get caught out in the rain with my guns fairly regularly, i'd rather not take any chances.
>>60203515Lubricate gun grease which I guess technically isn't rated as food-grade but seems to be a very similar formulation. Super Lube 52007 for oil.
>>60203535*lubriplate. They sell a food rated version but it only comes in buckets.
>>60201584Kids too. Promotes strong bones and neural development
>>60200532I hate cleaning guns so I got some Birchwood Casey gun scrubber and blast it through my barrel and any problem spots. I let it evaporate out and then I use whatever lube is on hand, usually Hoppes, BreakFree CLP (if I'm really lazy this is all I use), or Super Lube (also good for stuff like 3D printers and not as messy). I also use either RemOil wipes or Renaissance Wax to protect the finish and prevent rust.
>>60203628Yeah when im feeling especially lazy i will just take my spraybottle of breakfree and stream spray it into all the nooks and crannies, cycle the gun a bit, spray in a bunch more, most of the dirt and carbon will then just run out of the gun with the excess, its a tremendous waste of clp, and isnt entirely effective against gritty dirty of sand, but yuhknow.
>>60200532Giving coom another shot, but G96 is the benchmark
I prefer Radcolube just because it smells like the old CLP we used to use in the army back in the day. I understand the military has changed the formulation of the CLP they use now and I don't give a shit. A CLP is a CLP. I prefer the one whose smell reminds me of cleaning guns back in the company HQ.
>>60203654G96 is the way. Their nano grease also feels awfully like coomoil when wiped.
>>60200532for cleaning I use Brunox Turbo-Spray. it's a very thin oil which deals admirably with fouling and rust.for lubrication and protection I use Total Ceran XS 80. super slick. stable against aging. corrosion protection suitable for marine environments. makes cleaning a breeze.I smear it generously on everything: bolts, rails, firing pins (thin), revolver lock, trigger mechanism, springs, screws, barrels, outside, inside. everything runs slicker than ever before and it never failed.for small parts which I can't reach directly and I don't want to take apart I use coom oil. also works great.
>>60203250>in a safe with Evadry packsGet a VCI pack if you're using a safe. Cheap and you can put bare metal in there in a marine climate, it'll come out spotless. The brand I know is Napier VP90 but it's all basically the same stuff.
>>60201532only good answer in thread
>>60200532>cleaner Rubbing alcohol/ hoppes #9/soap and water.>lubricantGo Juice.>protectantA proper finish.
>>60200532I use Ram Trisol because they give you a free can with practically every gun related purchase.
>>60200532>cleanerSolvent, dry cleaning, non chlorinated>lubricantLubricant, semi fluid, high load capacitySimple as
>>60203654Does G96 runs a non-aerosol variant? In terms of chemistry its nonsense to compare it to Coomoil, here a comparision to Breakfree CLP is better. But both the arctic and winter version are worth to compare to G96 since the base oils are in comparable viscosities. Next year im doing the deep development of the winter line which includes formulation testing by 3rd party labs to get hard numbers at -20°C and -40°C (viscosity), Breakfree CLP is my source for MIL-Spec and G96 might be a option since Alaskabruh loves it>>60201385You dont need to fully clean out the cleaner to use Coom, best way is to clean a gun with BF CLP and just wipe off CLP on the parts that do moving contact. A quick wipe with a QTIP or kitchen paper and than Coom... they can mix, both are PAOs and dont hate each other.
>>60204450Is coom lube non toxic?Also does it have a smell? In fact I prefer at least a faint smell.
>>60204725its non toxic and smell is very low level. Im not adding parfume to keep the hunters happy, fetishboys can add perfumes on their own desu
>>60200536Love me sum numbah 9
>>60204877Release a cherry-vanilla version bro. You’ll drown in money.
>>60204973Its not about money, Im happy when im able to push out more products. But at the end it would just cost me 300$ for a limited edition product (label reprint), so its getting done at some point for the fun. What about a fishy smell?
>>60200532i spit and shine brother. no need for fancy concoctions
>>60204994Fishy? Eww no unless it’s like a prank product or something.I do have some good scent ideas though.>vanilla>cherry vanilla(^these two would actually work really well for a serious product to be like armor-all but for guns)>leather-bergamot (unique experimental)>mintCan’t go wrong
>>60200532Kroil to clean the bore. FP10 for cleaning everything else and lubing. TetraGrease for certain guns and parts.
>>60200532I usually just use CLP and/or Lubriplate. Have any of you guys tried Luca oil CLP? Someone gave me a bottle the other day I have never tried it before.
>>60203186Froglube still holding strong. Works great to prevent carbon lock on cans.
>>60204994Where do we buy your product from?I'm in Canada, is it possible to get here?
>>60200532Cleaner>ed's red, brake cleaner, that foaming shit for stubborn metallic foulingLube/Preservative>refined coconut oil dissolved in HEET carrier with a little hexagonal boron nitride added for flavor applied via spray bottle for minimal effort, wood and leather get ballistolThe K31 gets waffenfett exclusively, as God intended.
>>60201385Where can I get coomlube?
>>60213504Moka raifus (USA) or sending a letter to my german home (EU). Im sourcing chemicals for a new product right now and if possible its getting into MOKAs to the end of this year, that new product is worth is without any question.
>>60213845>Pic related = Coomlube?I (read)heard about it on a mongolian basket weaving forum , and aparently (from what i have read) it is good stuff. Couldn't find it by searching "Coomlube".Thanks, will do once i start running out of other shit i have.
>>60200532hoppe's No. 9 and 5W-30.
>>60203204>chuddy thinks he has a secret formula that manufacturers can't come up withPost a pic of your shake and bake meth in a mountain dew bottle
>>60203204you know you could use a calcium sulfonate grease instead and you'd have superb rust protection along with excellent lubricity.and if you want to make it thinner use mobil 0w20.
>>60200532>>60200536I love both of these
