I've been using Break Free for years and love it. I'm gonna have to give the Mobile One mix a try though.

For cleaning, it is recommended to put a damp patch through the bore and let it soak overnight then do a thorough cleaning.

Break free CLP works ok. I prefer separate cleaners and lubricants. CLP is a "one size fits most" solution.

That "article" is a self serving puff piece...I mean press release from the PR dept.

I like CLP but still use solvents for the tough stuff. Just got a gallon jug and it was 60+ so the Mobil 1 mix might be something to try. My buddy is Sheriff SRT shoots alot in training and swears by the Mobil 1. The CLP pump sprayer is kinda a mystery to me, all mine does is shoot a stream, won't be buying another one.

So, this Break Free CLP is the same stuff I was issued in the Marines?
I'll have to look into it, as that stuff was good/great for standard cleanings. We went to the solvent tanks any time we had to fire blanks though. The BFAs made sure every speck of carbon was locked securely inside your gas tube, barrel, bolt carrier, and chamber.

Maybe, maybe not, if you are old enough it would have been LSA in a green plastic bottle shaped like a Vizine bottle. In the Army CLP came in the consumer bottle, don't know about the Marine version.

Overkill your right it is a puff piece, but every word is true.
I use CLP on all metal and it works great protecting it.
I just realized I should be using it on my hand tools too.
