Ok so I picked this stuff up and decided to give it a try. What I did was field strip the gun sprayed (decent ammount) the slide, barrel, and frame. I let it sit then went at it with a soft brush. After everything was clean I wiped it down and put it back together.

My question is do I need to lube any further? It seems like this stuff leaves a film and I didn't want to over lube. Also is it cool to just spray the stuff directly onto the slide? Is it a problem if it gets in the firing pin channel? I am new to guns in general any help you be great.

CLP has been used for many years . Use it to clean the weapon and it is lubed ready to go. It protects even better as it cures but is ready to go as soon as you put it on.
A very little goes a long way. I use it alone on every weapon we own . Some that were put away for years were cleaned with it and came back out of storage like new.
Like every thing today some one will offer a magic new trick the secret formula all a bunch of hog wash and over priced CLP will serve you just fine .
If you soaked it down wipe it down good the stuff is meant to be used spearingly

You should avoid getting any cleaner or lube in the firing pin channel.

Yeah Damn phone. I will be more careful about the firing pin channel. My main concern was the firearm being properly lubricated.

Personally, I'm coo-coo for cocoa puffs.

Seriously, there are a lot of good lubes out there. I typically will immerse a disassembled gun in some cheap lube. Clean the bore, plus a little light nylon brushing where needed. Shake the drops loose, blow it with compressed air, use minimal lube in just the right places and reassemble.

I generally always use CLP in the cold months and Tetra gun grease in the hot months. Both have worked extremely well for me.

So applying the CLP and brushing the gun down and wiping excess off is the proper way to use this stuff?
ps the guns are M&Ps.

I use this as of a few months ago. First time I did, I WAY overdid it and the next time on the range I was getting a facefull of it each time I fired a shot. Now what I do is spray a small amount in a bottlecap and apply using a qtip. Now I should mention that I do not use this for a cleaner (I use Gunslick foaming cleaner followed by cool water for that), I just use it for a lube and protectant. I was talking with a USMC vet who served multiple tours in Iraq as an infantryman, he told me he used precisely one can of CLP for his M16 in 7 months (of almost daily cleaning).

For the best cleaning results, let sit wet overnight or at least for about 30 minutes then wipe off leaving a thin film.
It's a very good and proven product. Unless they have changed things, it was the only authorized cleaning and lining agent allowed by the Marines on the M16.

I really like Breakfree CLP. In part it's probably because I'm "old school" and haven't researched any cleaning product since the late 80's!:redface: What can I say? If it ain't broke, I can't probably still fix it!:danceban:

Breakfree CLP keeps an awful lot of military firearms running. The only exception would be the rare occasion where a dry lube is needed. Any quality lubricant of the right viscosity for your climate will do the trick.

Common myth CLP will cause hand guns to stick and not fire in cold you must use frog oil, or Dr someones special magic lube.
100% myth.
