When we think of a CLP, often Breakfree CLP comes to mind. It is revered for being what the military used and probably still used in some units. A big misconception today is that the stuff you get in the civilian world is the same as the military gets. This is not true anymore. A few years ago, Safariland redesigned the product to eliminate the Teflon additive, which is toxic. The military version still has the Teflon in it, as far as I know. But I know that there is a definite difference between the military CLP and the stuff you can get today. I didn’t notice a difference in performance, but you can definitely smell the difference. The military stuff is quite rank in comparison to the stuff for the commercial market. The design change lowered the overall solvent percentage, but ended up making the product fully synthetic and less toxic. The lack of solvent in this CLP does in fact make this a slower cleaner. That said, this product relies on its ability to penetrate under the fouling and soak it in order to soften it, making it easy to brush or wipe away. It seems to do the job pretty well, but not as good as some other CLPs. There is a process that you should follow if you want to use this product.
All in all, I feel that this product is a great value for what you are getting. If you buy this product in bulk, such as in the gallon jug, as I have, it costs less than $1/oz. This price is way better than any competition out there. Why not stick with the standard by which other CLPs are judged. Get some Breakfree CLP and try it out for yourself. It may just be what your gun needs.
