Default The Single Best C/L/P Product I've Used

Hello,

I was turned on to this stuff by a member of Indiana Gun Owners Forums. He made a gift of some (thanks HFB!) when we went shooting.

Fluid Film® | Corrosion Preventative, Lubricant and Rust Inhibitor

I've been running it in all manner of firearms now, and it beats CLP or pretty much anything else all to heck, with just a very thin coating.

Heck, I've pretty much stopped cleaning the gas system on the SKS because, after treatment, I could find no buildup and everything stayed lubed. I just put a squirt or two in the vent holes and no longer have to worry about cleaning the gun 'til it breaks.

The 1911, .22, and a few others with slower moving bullets just get it sprayed down the barrel and run out with a bore snake.

The only downside I've found is that, after cleaning the .22 with it, it penetrates so well that it takes about 50 rounds to shoot back in vs the usual 20 or so. That's sort of a non-issue though as I keep junk ammo around for that purpose and making noise with it is fun. That, and I don't clean the barrel until accuracy falls off.

I highly recommend taking a look at this stuff. It's easy to find in farm country, and most John Deere dealerships carry it from what I've read, though with guns, one aerosol can looks to last a while.

My Breakfree CLP is standing by, unused. Fluid Film is lanolin based and is less toxic than most other CLP products, as well.

I just applied it to a gun, and no matter how many times I wash my hands, or with what, I can't get it to come off. My fingers will be slick until the lanolin absorbs.

Awesome stuff. I suggest you check it out. Only runs $7 to $10 per 11.75 fl oz spray can - very competitive at that price.

Josh

Here is what never made sense to me.

A cleaner made to break down oil and grime. A lube OIL.

How does this work?

I used CLP for 8 years (Well that is what I told my NCO's) I used automotive carbon cleaners and Hoppes #9. It was amazing My weapon never failed inspection.

Not knocking your product. But when a product claims to be a do it all wonder lube cleaner ect.... They have never impressed me much. Jut saying YMMV....

Fluid Film is not a cleaner. It is a corrosion preventive, lubricant and penetrating oil all in one. PM me for a free sample and let's see if you are impressed. Won't know until you try it.

Dano, Received the samples sent. Weather permitting will distribute them to my shooting buddies at range tomorrow.

By the way, read the Fluid Film can label. Noted it was lanolin and had no solvents. I've used the Lee Reloading brass lube for sometime now that is lanolin based. It prevents brass from sticking in reloading dies. Curious, I put a dash of Fluid Film on a piece of 308 brass and spread it with my fingers. Then resized it. Fluid Flim worked well as a case lube....resized 5 more pieces of 308 brass. Just a dash on a case, spread it with fingers...put it on a couple of cases with fluid flim on my fingers from other cases.....all resized just fine, no sticking and etc. in die.

May I assume, since your product is solvent free, it contains no petroleum products that could contaminate/ruin the primers/powder in a cartridge? Case lube needs to be applied inside the neck of a piece of brass for rifle cartridge resizing, which can lead to contamination of gun powder or primers.

Dano,

Thank you, I received the sample. I will post impressions as soon as I get a chance to use it.

Fluid Film does contain some highly-refined petroleum oils, so I'm not sure what effect it would have.

Dano, Thanks for reply on having some highly refined petroleum based oils in Flim Fluid. Chuckle, makes me wonder if this oil comes from EXXON Plant in Baytown, Tx.....one of few places in U.S. that can make such oil....Marvel Mystery Oil, for example, uses it. But, having petroleum based products in it certainly eliminates Flim Fluid from use inside a piece of brass. However, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, don't think a problem using on outside case of brass.

Anyway, this morning before reading your reply, had resized 60 pieces of brass.....some being 308 Win brass I resized to 7mm-08. Used the Flim Fluid as the case lube on outside of brass and used my normal lube for inside neck of brass. Again the Flim Fluid proved to be an excellent brass case lub. Normally I use the Imperial Case Resizing Lube product, which is generally regarded as one of best such products available for reloading. The Flim Fluid seemed to work as well as it. Also, the Fluid Flim seemed to have made removal of the blackened soot often found on neck of brass from powder blow back easier, when I did my normal routine of using Tee Shirt cotton cloth to wipe off case lub after resizing.

Thanks again for samples sent me. I did give them to my range shooting buddies to try.
