The Single Best C/L/P Product I've Used


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hello,

I was turned on to this stuff by a member of Indiana Gun Owners Forums. He made a gift of some (thanks HFB!) when we went shooting.

http://www.fluid-film.com/products/

I've been running it in all manner of firearms now, and it beats CLP or pretty much anything else all to heck, with just a very thin coating.

Heck, I've pretty much stopped cleaning the gas system on the SKS because, after treatment, I could find no buildup and everything stayed lubed. I just put a squirt or two in the vent holes and no longer have to worry about cleaning the gun 'til it breaks.

The 1911, .22, and a few others with slower moving bullets just get it sprayed down the barrel and run out with a bore snake.

The only downside I've found is that, after cleaning the .22 with it, it penetrates so well that it takes about 50 rounds to shoot back in vs the usual 20 or so. That's sort of a non-issue though as I keep junk ammo around for that purpose and making noise with it is fun. That, and I don't clean the barrel until accuracy falls off.

I highly recommend taking a look at this stuff. It's easy to find in farm country, and most John Deere dealerships carry it from what I've read, though with guns, one aerosol can looks to last a while.

My Breakfree CLP is standing by, unused. Fluid Film is lanolin based and is less toxic than most other CLP products, as well.

I just applied it to a gun, and no matter how many times I wash my hands, or with what, I can't get it to come off. My fingers will be slick until the lanolin absorbs.

Awesome stuff. I suggest you check it out. Only runs $7 to $10 per 11.75 fl oz spray can - very competitive at that price.

Josh

I'll stick with the original "CLP" product which is non-toxic and can be used on metal, wood, plastic, leather, your house plants etc.... Ballistol. The more I use it the more I like it.

For those not in-the-know (as I was until a minute ago... ) "CLP" stands for Clean, Lubricate, Preserve/Protect.

Joshua,

Wonder what happened to the post from Dano, who offered to send free samples of the FLUID FILM PRODUCT.

Well, I had emailed/pm'd Dano and received some samples this week. One for me and rest for gents I regularly shoot with at range on Sunday. Just used some of Fluid Flim today. First it was on front door lock of my house that was sticking....worked well for that. Tried it in receiver of of a sporter M1917 U.S. Rifle that has a bolt that seems to drag as it is retracted and then closed.....seemed to help.

Happened to have 6 pieces of 308 brass on my workbench when reading the Fluid Flim can....noticed it had lanolin in it, no solvents, safe on rubber, conditions leather, vinyl, wood and etc. Hmmmm, my Lee tube of case lube is lanolin based.

Put a dash of Fluid Flim on one of 308 pieces of brass and spread it around with my finger and then resized it......worked well as a brass case lub. Did other 5 pieces of brass, some with just tips of my fingers that had the Fluid Flim on them from a dash/drop or two on another case. Worked well. The brass had been sitting on my bench under a covered parking area for at least a month, uncleaned and etc. So, this stuff may be an excellent brass cartridge case lub too. Assume being solvent free, OK to use inside neck of brass too. Something you don't want to do with solvent based stuff.

Hello,

I'm using it to condition my new muzzleloader's bore and lightly lube the patches.

Accuracy is up!
