    Using CLP in Glocks

    I bought CLP to clean my new Glock, I know not to put any lubricant on the "inner workings" that are attached to the frame. But I also know those need to be cleaned. With the CLP it is a cleaning solution and lubricant. So my question is how should I use CLP on the parts attached to the frame? I was thinking about using it to clean then wipe it all off. Let me know what yall think, and how yall use CLP with Glocks.

    Only an Aggie would have trouble using CLP on his Glock.

    Actually, I just use some Hoppes No 9 solvent to clean the inners of the Glock and use CLP on that parts that I don't mind being lubricated.

    I just started useing it on my G23 with zero issues. I've used it for 16 years on my military issued firearms so I figured it'll work on my nice Glock. I have no fear of it and it certinaly hasn't affected my Glock working.



    I think your good to go.

    The only thing I know of not to use CLP on would be the internals of the slide...mainly the firing pin channel. Anything else, I would squeeze some on the tip of a q-tip and go to town. I clean and lube parts in my frames no problem. As Texan29 pointed out---I've also used the Hoppes #9 in there for the carbon clean-up. Your lube points on the frame should be pointed out specifically in your owner's manual. Remember....too much lube isn't a good thing. Main points to lube would be the slide rails and the barrel hood or the inside part of the slide over the barrel hood, and the muzzle hole. Just a drop again on the end of a q-tip or your finger and smear it around. I'm using Gunzilla now though, and excess lubrication isn't a problem with the pump spray of this product.

    CLP does the job for me on all MY Glocks. As with any such product, however, just use it sparingly in only the recommended places.

    CLP is the shizzle for cleaning, ESPECIALLY the Break-Free CLP weapon wipes. Baby-wipe type cloths that are self-contained and clean really well. They really get the grit and grime off. I ususally use 2 wipes to clean my entire AR or AK then a final clean one to wipe down all exposed surfaces for rust protection.

    Militec-1 is a great lubricant for high-wear parts, too. I prefer loc-tite copper grease for rails though, I'm pretty sure it's the same stuff that Glocks have on the rails from the factory.

    Though I don't have a Glock - I'm an XD man.

    I use Slip 2000 on my G22 now, was using MILTEC-1 prior . Works great and haven't had any MALS to date.

    I spray the Break Free CLP on a rag and let it soak in for a second or two and then start cleaning my glock well all my firearms for that matter with it. IMO it works the best for me, after I get the firearm cleaned I spray a clean part of the cloth and wipe down the recommended lubrication points on my glock with it, this allows me to add the lubrication without getting to much, but try different things out and see what works for you. The Q-tip idea that Ram Rod suggested seems like a good idea.
