I mostly use Hoppes#9 and, like most people, one of my main reasons is, I like the smell. I use only the old #9 with nitrobenzene (I know, it's bad) because it does a decent job on copper. It is also a superior rust preventative. It's served me well for nearly fifty years of shooting and cleaning. I still have about 1/2 gallon which should do me for the duration.
The only other product I use much is JB compound. GD

Default Hoppes # 9

I was going to buy Gun Scrubber one day at Gander Mt and the guy said he would only recommend it for old WWII rifles that had grease all over them and inside them, other than that, he said some manufacturers actually put a no no in their manual about Gun Scrubber and a couple others.

I had a gun that would jam up all the time even though I cleaned it regularly with tetra gun 3 in 1,I switched to Hoppes no 9 solvent and my gun has not jammed once since I switched.I do hoppes 9 solvent then hoppes oil,that's it,works good.

Going to try Gunzilla, it sounds like a product that was called Gozon that I can't find any more...still have about 1/3 of a spray can left after five years of sparing use.

Hoppes #9 is in use here exclusively with the exception of the cheepest brake cleaner I can find on sale.

I use M-Pro-7. Gunzillia is doing a good job of marketing their product. I noticed though that they removed a statement that said leaving Gunzilla on plastic or nylon gun parts could be harmful. could be counter hype from a competitor. I have some doubts about use as a long term lubricant. I just fail to see any lab tests. Yes, the army has tried it but have not contracted to use it. CLP is still their choice. Hoppes and M-Pro-7 for me.

OK a cleaning solvent is made to break up carbon oil and grim.

Explain to me how you mix a solvent into an oil and expect to work right? CLP was worthless when I was in the Army and it is even more worthless now that I am out.

You have to put so much CLP on an ar to keep it lubed because it doesn't work. Oil and Grease to lube solvent to clean.

For really bad stuff. I will still use Hoppes Copper Solvent. Man that stuff smells bad. But it works.

M-Pro-7 is mostly a synthetic only used for lubricating. I also use Hoppes grease on a couple points on slides and only on certain guns.

I would try Gunzilla, why not? Orange or lemon concentrate will clean too so as a cleaner there might be something to it. I'm just not sure as a long term lubricant solution.
