This is a discussion on CLP???? within the Firearm Cleaning & Maintenance forums, part of the General Firearm Discussion category; So I've had this stuff since I was in the ARNG and I like it. Problem is I don't know what the civilian replacement is? ...
There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)
It's called Breakfree CLP. I believe, there is a bit less of the solvent in the civvie blend for whatever reason, but its good stuff. I do, usually, use hoppes solvent first.
BreakFree CLP or FP-10 (FirePower 10) or WeaponShield -
WeaponShield is the latest version of the CLP (Cleans ~ Lubricates ~ Protects) type products.
It independently tests better than BreakFree or FP-10.
The creator of FP-10 is the same chemist that formulated the more advanced WeaponShield.
Just Google search WeaponShield & that will give you the manufacturer web site.
There's better stuff out there now in my opinion. I'm not pushing any products here, but lets just say I really relied on CLP also for a very long time which began in the military also for me. I know better things now.
what works better is militech. Alot of the units in the military have go to it and the reason why is you use have as much as CLP and does just as good if not better. Here is the link to the websiteMILITEC-1 - synthetic lubricant, gun oil and metal conditioner

Go to the Sponsors forum and look at the Gunzilla thread.
You can also go to the website and see the tests done between Gunzilla and CLP. Gunzilla is a far superior cleaner, lubricant and protectant.

I switched to Gunzilla and it does for my guns all that the seller says it does. Great stuff.
