I got some of this G96 Gun Treatment cleaner/lube/protectant on recommendation from several people on several boards.
I decided to try this before trying the Gunslick (Outter's) Foaming Bore Cleaner. Just looks like it does more of what I want it to do. Pretty much spray it into the bore and wipe it out, as well as in the receiver etc.
I'm wondering if there's anything I need to know about this.
First, are there any dangers, and can it damage firearms if not used properly?
Second, using Hoppe's #9 as a baseline comparison, how does it rate for
1) Lubrication properties?
2) Cleaning, both copper fouling and powder residue? Will it satisfactorily neutralize corrosive primer residue?
3) Protection of the metal? Should I still use a coat of oil?
As well, in your experience, what is the best way to use this stuff? Just spray it on and wipe off as the bottle says, or are there any tricks to make it even more effective?
I have used G96 CLP for years. Its cleaning qualities are good, although you will need to use still patches, a brush, and a clean cloth to finish the job. As a lubricant, it works well. I would not hesitate to use it as a sole lubricant on a pistol that requires only light lubrication (most polymer pistols). As for it protective qualities, I have no complaints, but I live in a dry climate. If you must have a better protective cover, augment G96 with Rig #2 or Sheath. Also, G96 has a pleasant odor, which is not too lingering. Use it by just spraying it on and wiping it off. Recommended.
