A question for the gun owners on the forum. I recently cleaned my gun with break free CLP Cleaner/Lube. I read the label on the back and from what i understand is that it cleans and lubes the gun and all that i need to do to is just apply it to the gun. Am i correct on this?

I did clean it out the usual way before i applied it. I ran cotten patches down the barrel and sprayed the gun out with the air compressor as well as putting some of that CLP stuff on a brush and brushing around various areas of the gun.

Any input or advice is appreciated

CLP is some good stuff. The army gives us bottles and bottles of it for all of our weapons systems. Use is dependent upon the weapon though. M-16's don't like too much of it in them, and .50 calibers aren't happy unless they spray the crap everywhere when you fire it. The best method I've found for cleaning weapons is by disassembling, wipe everything down without using CLP, and clean all the crevices and holes with q-tips and pipe cleaners without using CLP. After you can wipe everything down without getting ANY carbon (minimal black marks on fresh paper/q-tips) lightly oil up a fresh rag, and wipe it on all parts. Light coating is optimal, since putting too much in your weapon will cause it to soak up the carbon it is exposed to when you fire the weapon, and will jam much quicker. It is also easier to re-clean after a light oiling vs. heavy oiling, for same reason. Oh, and I don't recommend oiling the inside of the barrel, for same reason. I used to soak all my parts in CLP before cleaning, thinking it would break up the carbon easier (which it does), but it also makes it smear more. This makes cleaning your weapon take longer, since instead of the paper soaking the carbon, it's soaking the CLP and smearing the carbon. Dry cleaning is best for efficient cleaning, and light oiling is best for keeping it that way. But if your particular weapon seems like it needs more oil to function properly, by all means add it. Anything else?
