    CLP and Oil?

    Currently I am uisng G96 Gun Treatment CLP, for both cleaning and lubrication. G96 also has a Military Grade Synthetic oil. Should I be using that on the nessary points on my M&P 40 Shield, or is the CLP enough?

    I used a CLP exclusively (without any other additional lubes) before I switched to FireClean without any trouble.

    +1 I use CLP under the Winchester & Safariland 'brands'. Still have every type of powder, copper solvent, & many types of oil, but the CLP is the norm.

    CLP does a great job of cleaning and protecting but I also like to use syth grease on the slide/rails
    because I dont feel CLP offer's anywhere enough lube in its compound as its comes out of the can

    That's exactly what I was thinking

    CLP is it. My Glock doesn't need a whole lot of lubrication, and the CLP provides more than enough.

    CLP is pretty much a complete ordeal. At least the CLP I remember was standard issue in service. We all have our own personal preferences on the gun cleaning ordeal since there are so many products on the market these days, but when it comes down to what you need to use in the bush for everything to maintain your weapon it needs to be rather simple and effective. CLP is just that even though I have recommended other products in the ideal world in the past. In the field keep it simple and effective. I hope I've answered your question.

    I used CLP for many years and I liked it until I tried a 50/50 mix of synthetic Mobil 1 and Marvel Mystery Oil. IMO it works much better doesn't attract dust/ dirt and makes cleaning easier. There are definitely other more expensive options available but, they are not necessarily better. Good luck!

    This answers my question right here.

    What is the difference between G96 Gun Treatment or Gun Oil and G96 Synthetic CLP Gun Oil?
    Synthetic CLP Gun Oil has been approved by the US Military (MIL-PRF-63460E) whereas Gun Treatment is not an approved product for the US Military. Gun Treatment and Gun Oil are petroleum based. The Synthetic CLP gun oil is synthetic based. The Synthetic CLP Gun Oil is 85% biodegradable and contains no VOC's. Synthetic CLP Gun Oil only comes in a liquid form whereas G96 Gun Treatment is available in either a liquid bottle or an aerosol spray can. Synthetic CLP Gun Oil has slightly better cold weather specifications. Synthetic CLP gun oil is rated at -74F and Gun Treatment is rated at -50F. Synthetic CLP Gun Oil has slightly better corrosion protection and slightly better clean up after firing. Synthetic CLP Gun Oil has Corrosion Protection from Propellant Reaction Products Both have excellent properties for Preservation protection for long and short term. Neither product will evaporate. Neither product will thicken or congeal.
