MOST firearms require SOME lube to function properly. Unless you have so much lube that it interferes with the operation, or spatters in your eyes when the hammer drops, it is not an issue. And Break Free will not hurt your pistol. If there is too much there, blow it out, or just stand the slide up on end on a paper towel overnight. Let it drain.

You can't get too much Break Free up there - it will drip/evaporate out, leaving a thin film of lube - which is a good thing.

I'm not saying you can't over lube, but Break Free is very viscous - it's not a heavy oil or grease.

Ok, thank you.

Here is another good question.

Break-free is the only thing I use to clean/lube my gun right now should I be using anything else, what lube/oil/cleaner do you guys use?

I use Rem Oil.

Next time, put it in the dishwasher!

I personally don't like remoil. I've tried it and found it to be to light, I have to constantly reoil my carry piece. I've been using hoppes or outers which is just a tick heavier. I don't think there is anything wrong with remoil, it's just my preference.

I got lots of Rem oil free from relatives.

I'll try those others, but I haven't had any problems. I clean them after every outing or once a month or so anyway.

Thanks!

You probably wont have any problems. If I got it free, I'd probably use it too but I picked up a small bottle for $1 just to try it and wasn't thrilled. I found my Kimber would litterally be dry after only a 3-4 days, with the others it was a couple of weeks. I do use it on my SP101 because it's stainless and as a lubricant I think Remoil will be fine.

I've been using Break Free CLP for cleaning bores and lubrication for several years. I used Hoppes for 30 years to clean guns (we all did), but I now think Break Free works better.

I use Bore Blast or another brake fluid based solvent to rinse crud out of lock works, but one of my instructors had a Sig frame melt after he used that stuff, so be careful. Break Free does not hurt your gun.
