You'll have a tough time finding Dextron IV for your tests.

They all seem to be variations on a theme.

Most of those look like they have nothing in common with CLP. Probably be better off going with a 50/50 mix of ATF/motor oil and kerosene than some of those.

Since you can get a 16oz supply of CLP for less than $20, how much are you really saving with a home brew? All those ingredients have a cost as well...so the savings is a few dollars per year...for something that doesn't work as well on a collection of guns that is worth, what, many thousands of dollars?

Seems a false economy to me...

* My bad - Should be Dextron VI nor IV !

* Grant Cunningham's site has interesting information on CLP's that may change your mind .

* Lucas Red #2 Grease suitable for slides comes in a large 16oz. tub for $6.00 while the same #1 or #2 grease for guns comes in a small syringe for $7.00 + .

* A lot of 1911 semi - auto owners use M1 20W 50 or a M1 / Dextron VI mix with very good results !

* I own and use : Balistol , Slip 2000 EWL , Weapon Shield and MPro 7 to name a few ... I would not consider making anything on my own unless I already had the ingredients on the garage shelf . Glocks & Rugers are not too picky regarding what you CLP them with .

I don't quite get it. Why not just go for the viscosity you're aiming for first, rather then making a mix that yields an intermediate viscosity. If some other additization intrinsic to motor oil is desirable, just add it...

I use motor oil and ATF in a 50/50 ratio. I wasn't aiming for a particular viscosity, I used what was readily available, in my case Supertech 5w-30 Synth and ST Dex/Merc ATF. The ATF makes my AR a bit easier to clean versus straight motor oil, and this combo product lasts longer under use than Breakfree CLP on an AR BCG.

The nice thing about a motor oil/ATF combo is that pretty much anyone can try it for virtually no investment. Use the leftovers from a fluid change. Even an ounce of each will be plenty for a test. Repurposed contact lens solution bottles work well for that.

I'll also add that I use it for lubrication only. It is too "sticky" to use as a protectant. Surfaces that need rust protection get a wipe of Boeshield T9.

In a pinch I have found liquid wrench chain lube to be a good ersatz gun lube. Like gun lubes it has extreme pressure additives, goes on thin but thickens to resist "sling off", had corrosion inhibitors for steel components, and is pretty darn cheap.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 07/28/14 07:21 PM

* Dexron it is !

* I didn't create any of the recipes , I just reported what I found on various sites .

* My weapons get rubbed down with Corrosion X and then only areas that need grease or a lube get it .

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 07/29/14 05:04 PM

Some exotic gun lubes are quite expensive in comparison (i.e. Gun Butter , Frog Lube) - besides what Grant Cunningham has to say on his web site about lubrication of firearms , there are countless others in the 1911 and AR semi - auto community who shoot more in a week then I do in a whole year who swear by "Ed's Red" CLP and other offshoot recipes I included here for grins . Perhaps due to the platforms they shoot (AR and 1911) and running these weapons wet - they find M1 20W 50 V-Twin synthetic oil , Dexron VI ATF, etc. to be quality lubricants which they consider cost effective . That said , I'm fine with people who decide that Break Free CLP is perfect for their usage based on how much they shoot .
Posted By: hatt

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 07/30/14 02:41 AM

"Ed's Red" is totally different than anything you posted here. It actually looks like it would be of use but I've never tried it.

Equal parts ATF/kerosene/mineral spirits/acetone.

Bottom line is that if you're shooting enough that lube costs are getting high, money isn't an issue in the first place. A gallon of CLP is $80. Or about 250-300 rounds of cheap .223.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 07/30/14 03:11 AM

Besides all of the above arguments against using home made CLPs, One thing to remember is that all the homebrews are going to stink! You do not want to spill any of those homebrews or use them inside if you or anyone else in your house has a sensitive nose.

I actually used to use (years ago) ed's red as my general gun cleaner. The bad smell and head aches were the reasons I stopped using it.

That is one of the main reasons I like Breakfree CLP and CorrosionX so much, they have almost no odor. If you really like ZERO odor, super lube is the best. I also like and recommend ballistol but its strong black licorice smell turn a lot of people off.
Posted By: Hokiefyd

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 07/30/14 12:41 PM

I still use Hoppe's cleaner and gun oil. I don't use the #9 solvent; I use the Elite solvent in a small spray bottle form. There is no odor and it's supposed to be safe(r) for yourself, your indoor air quality, etc. Then I lube with a few drops of gun oil...both in a patch through the bore and on the slide rail blocks in the frame. Bench Rest 9 is what I have at the moment, but I'm not opposed to any of the various gun-specific oils, or even a CLP in liquid form (like Breakfree, Rem Oil, etc).

The only CLP that I've tried to use exclusively is Ballistol. It doesn't seem to clean quite as well as a dedicated cleaner, and I also don't like the way it tends to "gum up" after a while in the gun. The slide rail blocks on my Shield had some Ballistol residue on them after sitting for a month, and while I wouldn't call that residue "sticky", it didn't feel smooth to the touch either.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 07/30/14 04:29 PM

Huge point AMC ! Many of these ingredients are going to stink for sure ... Although I use it , Ballistol smells like a cross between dirty gym socks and black licorice .

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 07/30/14 07:33 PM

I recently bought some M-Pro7 cleaner and I haven't been impressed with it. I see nothing special about it other than making my wallet lighter.

I will stick with my cleaner in a jar which is mineral spirits + some leftover ATF, HD30 and maybe some LC20 thrown in.

I tried Ballistol, but I no longer trust any oil that is capable of emulsifying with water. I'll leave Ballistol to the black powder and corrosive ammo crowds.

M-Pro 7 is my favorite cleaner. You can use it in the house, its non toxic, and the kids can be around. And, it works pretty darn good too.

Of course, mineral spirits, brake cleaner, and Hoppes number 9 original all work pretty good too, but they smell horrendous. Since I clean about 3-4 guns a week on average, I have gotten away from the stinky, toxic stuff and gone to using M-Pro 7 exclusively. It's a great cleaner.

I use Ed's red to clean my shotgun barrels or let stuff soak. Its easy to make and leave in paint can. Small parts that get build up on them are easily cleaned after an over night soak in Ed's Red.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/10/14 02:50 AM

I have to agree with AMC. About the best CLPs I have found are Breakfree and CorrosionX. They are not perfect. Breakfree apparently has declined in quality from where it was a few years ago. And CorrosionX is fine for lubrication and protection from corrosion but not the best cleaner. A person can use Hoppes No. 9 Bore Solvent, or Hoppes Elite or MPro7 cleaner to clean the barrel.

Either of these will work perfectly fine. With just a separate cleaner for the bore of the barrel.
Posted By: ChrisD46

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/10/14 11:59 PM

As funny as this may sound , I have never tried Breakfree but would like to after a armoror used nothing but Breakfree recently during free inspection / cleaning . I recenly bought Corrosion X just to wipe down exposed areas of gun metal for protection - since I have it I will try as a lube too .
Posted By: Mystic

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 01:46 AM

There still seem to be a lot of gunsmiths who use Breakfree. I tried CorrosionX after AMC recommended it and it is great except for cleaning the barrel. Use something else for the barrel like Hoppes Elite.

If you're going to use a separate solvent to clean the carbon, which I agree needs to be done, at least with the CLPs that I've used, then why use a CLP at all? The whole purpose is to be able to get away with just one product. If the CLP doesn't C as well as a dedicated solvent, then it may not L and P as well as a dedicated gun oil either. At the very least, you save no space in your gun bag with more than one product.

I've moved away from CLPs because I have found that they don't clean particularly well, and I've found gun oil to stay resident in the gun longer than CLPs over time.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 12:48 PM

Hokiefyd : Good point - then lets discuss what you feel are good "C" cleaners only and what you prefer as a final "L" lube or "LP" lube /protect ? The only pure cleaners that come to mind are : Hoppes #9 and the newer Hoppes Elite or MP7 dedicated "C" cleaners in the pump spray bottle (there may be others - but most likly mail order only) . For a pure "L" lube then something like Super Lube oil & grease comes to mind ...I can't think off hand of any gun oils that are just a pure "L" lube or even a "LP" lube / protect off hand AND somewhat readily available ... Your thoughts ?

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 02:00 PM

Breakfree CLP is the Bud Light of gun solvents. It's not good, it's not bad, and it's convenient.



Cleaning: Hoppes #9 Powder Solvent, MPro7 Gun Cleaner, Breakfree Bore Cleaning Foam, Montana Xtreme Copper Killer, or Kroil. I've been using more Kroil lately, just because.

Lubricating: 50/50 mix of ATF motor oil. Too "sticky" to use as a protectant, but will work in a pinch.

Protectant: Boeshield T9.

I have used Hoppes #9 in the past, and have moved to Hoppes Elite in a spray bottle format. I feel this cleans better than either Breakfree CLP or Ballistol, both of which I have used. For lubricant, I'm using Hoppes Benchrest 9 Lubricating Oil with Weatherguard. It claims to be both a lubricant and a protectant. Their Elite gun oil (with and without T3) claims the same, and I'll probably use that next.

I may be off-base here, but L and P functions seem to be close enough in nature that a similar product can handle both. Cleansing, on the other hand, seems to require a completely different set of characteristics.

And I do use my L/P product as both an L and a P. After cleaning with the solvent, I run a clean oily patch through the barrel to lightly coat it. I use a soaked Q-Tip to oil the slide rails and the slide blocks in the frame. I reassemble the gun and vigorously operate the slide to work all lubricant in. I take it back down and clean up any excess. Then I use that same oily patch that I used in the barrel to rub down all metal surfaces. After final reassembly, I buff the slide off with a lint-free microfiber cloth.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 04:16 PM

I have used Breakfree a lot in the past and for cleaning the gun barrel there is no question that old Hoppes No. 9 Bore Solvent will work. But I use it only outside when I can clean outside and I don't use it in the house. Hoppes Elite (or MPro7) are more expensive but clean really well and do not smell.

AMC told me about CorrosionX. It is not the greatest cleaner but it seems to work really well as a lubricate. And a guy did a lot of corrosion testing on YouTube (I can't remember his user name offhand) and CorrosionX did great in corrosion protection. So did Breakfree but it attracted dust. A lot of other products including various name brand gun oils did not do so well.

I have used a lot of products, including Ballistol and many others. I think CorrosionX is worth ordering. For local products I would stay with Breakfree. And for cleaning Hoppes No. 9 or Hoppes Elite or MPro7. The Hoppes Elite gun oil did not impress me. It ran off too quickly.

I have never tried Hoppes Benchrest gun oil. Hoppes also has a new Hoppes No. 9 gun oil that is partially synthetic but I have never tried it either. A long time ago in the past I used Hoppes No. 9 gun oil, especially on one gun that was really picky about what oil would work on it.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 04:28 PM

I picked up a spray can of corrosion X at Academy Sports , I would recommend more for a safe queen .

The Hoppes #9 Benchrest with Weatherguard I have not seen or heard of before ? Sounds interesting though ...

What are your thoughts on the silicon impregnated cloths (sold at many stores) for protecting the external finish of guns ?
Posted By: Mystic

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 04:32 PM

Those silicon impregnated clothes are great! And it is possible to renew them with inexpensive silicon spray. But CorrosionX is better for long term storage.

I was thinking about ordering some Hoppes Benchrest and that new Hoppes No. 9 oil and checking them out. They are not available locally. I have used just the ordinary Hoppes No. 9 gun oil.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 05:48 PM

Thanks for the tip on the Hoppe's Elite gun oil. When you say that it ran off too quickly, I imagine that it still left a lubricating film behind, right? My preference is for lighter oils, especially in a gun. Obviously, if it's runny and gets all over everything, that's not ideal. This is why I apply with a soaked Q-Tip; I touch the slide rails and the blocks with an oiled "sponge", but don't actually place a drop of oil on it.

The Benchrest 9 with Weatherguard came in this Hoppe's kit that I bought many years ago:



That kit came with the Benchrest 9 with Weatherguard oil, and the Hoppe's #9 solvent. But it was in a liquid bottle (as opposed to spray), and was difficult to use effectively. I was also cleaning a Ruger 22/45 at the time, and those have difficult-to-access nooks and crannies anyway.

Nowadays, I have a small plastic storage box with the spray solvent and oil bottles, cotton patches, Q-Tips, a microfiber rag, and this Winchester cleaning rod set:

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 06:07 PM

How is that Benchrest oil? Is it pretty good? I might give some a test someday, along with that new Hoppes No. 9 partially synthetic oil. I have a tendency to return again and again to Hoppes products.

The CorrosionX is definitely good for long term storage in my opinion.

Silicon clothes protect for a while (the external surface areas of a gun).

It seems fine to me. It "lightly" gums up on some parts of the gun that don't get direct contact (like on some portions of the slide blocks), but not as bad as the CLPs I've tried. Maybe that's a function of the "with Weatherguard". Maybe the Elite wouldn't do that as much.

My guns are stored inside in either a cabinet (pistols) or on a rack (rifle/shotgun) in the closet. I have not had an issue with corrosion, even with North Carolina humidity. Just a light coating rubbed into the blued finish of the rifle and a light coating down the barrel seem to be enough.

I do like the nature of some CLPs (like Ballistol) to dry...well...dry, with that Teflon-like coating that's like a seasoned iron skillet. Maybe I'll try all three one time just as an experiment...clean the bore with Hoppe's Elite, season the whole thing with Ballistol, then apply oil to certain areas.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/11/14 10:22 PM

AMC said that Breakfree nowadays pretty much does not have PTFE in it. He said the newer Breakfree is not as good as it was in the days when the military was using it. I have some of the older Breakfree and it meets more requirements than the newer stuff. So I think AMC is correct and maybe people need to move on away from Breakfree.

I lubricate my guns right before shooting so maybe just Hoppes gun oil would be good enough. But the CorrosionX seems to lubricate really well. And I think the CorrosionX would be great for long term storage of a firearm.

On a semi-auto white lithium grease in a limited amount on the slides might be good. Plus in the case of a Glock a small amount of grease on the critical lubrication point. And other than that just some gun oil. I think CorrosionX can potentially remove the need for grease. It stays put pretty good.

For cleaning a gun barrel I think Hoppes No. 9, Hoppes Elite, or MPro7 will all work pretty good.

The stuff I avoid are RemOil (I just never liked it), WD-40 (never use it on guns) and I have tried all kinds of supposed super gun oils and gun greases that were just a waste of money. And I wish I had my money back that I spent on the junk. People were talking about all of this home made stuff-Ed's Red and all of that. I never got into that kind of stuff real big. And I think people need to be careful because there is at least one gun lube that contains a known carcinogen. I would let the guns rust before I gave myself cancer.

Other stuff I avoid are carb cleaner and brake cleaner. Unless a gun is incredibly dirty (and whose fault is that?) I would never use stuff like that on guns and only outside. I care more than that about myself and my guns.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/12/14 02:20 AM

I have gone a few different ways since I started shooting again. Now, I use Rand CLP which I got from my gunsmith for an L and P. It's a thick liquid, virtually odorless. For the bore, I use foaming penetrant from Gunk. It has an interesting boundary lube, called Cerflon, which is a ceramic reinforced teflon. The carrier has a soy ester as part of the mix. It lifts fouling very easily, and is so thin so that it can get in just about anywhere. If anyone decided to use brake cleaner, be sure to use the Non-Chlorinated version. Chlorine is bad ju-ju for steel.

Re: Home Brew CLP's - 08/12/14 03:35 AM

Hokiefyd I don't think I answered your question on Hoppes Elite gun oil. When I bought my Glock a gunsmith recommended Hoppes Elite to clean and Hoppes gun oil to lubricate. I like Hoppes Elite to clean gun barrels. The only problems I have with it is that it is more expensive than Hoppes No. 9 bore cleaner and a bottle does not last very long, and also it is water based and I have heard that water based cleaners and oils can cause corrosion.

I did not like the Hoppes Elite gun oil very much. It seemed pretty runny to me and if I had the gun stored for any time it seemed to run off the gun a lot. I think Breakfree and CorrosionX stay on the gun much better.

With Breakfree apparently declining in quality I am turning to CorrosionX except for cleaning. I think CorrosionX is the new Breakfree you might say.

But I might try some other stuff like Hoppes Benchrest and the new Hoppes No. 9 with synthetic because they might be cheaper. If they worked good enough I would use the CorrosionX for protecting guns in storage.

Breakfree CLP is a light oil with a solvent added in for cleaning, the "C" in CLP. Almost EVERY modern gun oil made today does not have a solvent component and just uses the lubricant as a cleaner. They typically don't clean as well as Breakfree CLP or dissolve carbon as well, but they do a good enough job on the "C".

The following guns oils that I own and am familiar with can be considered a LP style lube since they are more designed for lubing and not cleaning. The manufacturer may advertise them as CLP's, FYI. They all are readily available and easy to find.

1) Breakfree LP (not CLP)
2) Slip 2000 EWL
3) G96 synthetic CLP
4) FP-10 CLP
5) Weaponshield CLP
6) M Pro-7 LP
